In some industrial applications hygienic aspects, high demands for easy cleaning as well as demands for the quality on the materials and components used are very important in the drive selection.


Lactic acid, fruit acid or other aggressive media in process as well as aggressive cleaners demand high quality for the materials used.


Cooling rips and edges provide optimal areas for dirt deposits where bacteria and germs will grow. Also cooling rips and edges prevent a proper cleaning.


Drives in hygienic industries have to run extremely quiet, cooling fans for cooling electric motors have to be avoided if possible (air swirls). The lubricant of the drives must not be harmful to health.
