Nord Drivesystems highlights drive solutions for the meat industry

Nord Drivesystems will be presenting its comprehensive drive portfolio for the meat industry at the specialist exhibition IFFA from 14-19 May 2022 in Frankfurt.

Highlights include the patented washdown-capable DuoDrive geared motor, the high performance surface treatment nsd tupH as well as the SAFOMI-IEC adapter for mixing and agitation processes.

IFFA is the international specialist exhibition for processing, packaging and sale of meat and alternative proteins. At the exhibition in Frankfurt, visitors can experience live how the drive specialist Nord Drivesystems supports the meat industry with efficient, hygienic and reliable solutions.

For the industry’s central aspiration – fulfilling the highest hygiene requirements – Nord has developed the surface treatment nsd tupH which it says makes aluminium almost as corrosion resistant as stainless steel. Surfaces treated with nsd tupH are corrosion resistant, resistant to acids and alkalis and can even withstand cleaning processes with high-pressure cleaners and aggressive media.

Most importantly, Nord says this is not a coating, but rather a surface treatment that creates a protective layer which is permanently bonded to the substrate material, so nothing can detach or flake off. The nsd tupH version is available for most of the aluminium products in the NORD modular drive system, and is therefore ideally suited for hygienically sensitive applications in the food sector.

The DuoDrive can also be delivered with the surface treatment. The patented geared motor in hygienic wash-down design integrates a high efficiency IE5+ synchronous motor into a single-stage helical gear unit. This not only guarantees a compact size and minimal noise emissions but also high power density and overall high system efficiency. Together with its simple plug-and-play commissioning, the complete DuoDrive solution results in a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to other drive systems.

Finally, visitors will be able to see the SAFOMI-IEC adapter, which Nord developed specifically for agitators. If it is used for an agitator drive instead of a standard IEC adapter, Nord says higher operational reliability and less maintenance will be achieved. However, its main advantage is an integrated oil expansion volume. Therefore, oil tanks and hoses as well as the radial shaft seal, which is subject to leakage and wear between gear unit and IEC cylinder, are not required.

SAFOMI is available for MAXXDRIVE helical gear units in sizes 7 to 11 and covers maximum output torques from 25 to 75 kNm. The compact combination of a MAXXDRIVE industrial gear unit, the SAFOMI IEC adapter and a drive motor is the best choice for mixer and agitator applications to reduce wearing parts and attached components.
