Stainless steel motors improve cheese production

Stainless steel motors improve cheese production As part of an on-going process of maintaining the highest quality standards in conjunction with meticulous attention to hygiene, Australia's number one cheese manufacturer The Bega Co-operative Society Limited is now implementing a policy of replacing existing conventional DC and AC motors with stainless steel machines. In particular, this motor replacement programme is designed to eliminate problems relating to salt-initiated corrosion and its consequent maintenance/hygiene implications. The motors being replaced are employed on salt blowers and pumps at Bega's plant in North Bega, NSW and they range in size up to 7.5kW. The DC motors were suffering corrosion, whilst the AC machines were suffering from both corrosion and moisture ingress. The introduction of the Marlin Stainless motors has eliminated these problems at the company's Bega Valley plant, where 500 employees produce some 14,000 tonnes of cheddar annually as well as 7,000 tonnes of whey powder and 800 tonnes of butter for home and export markets.
