Motors for Food and Beverage Industry

Gibbons’ stainless steel motors and waterproof ABB variable-speed drives have been specifically designed with ultra-hygienic applications such as food and beverage processing in mind. In this demanding sector, only the highest standards of cleanliness are acceptable, with the consequences of products becoming contaminated being extremely serious.

Our stainless steel motors are totally enclosed non-ventilated (TENV) and completely smooth, meaning there’s nowhere for dirt and debris to hide and fester. Plus, the corrosion-resistant IP69K casing can handle high-pressure water jets used during washdowns.

Meanwhile, our ABB ACS355 variable-speed drives are rated at IP66/67 ingress protection, so they’re also dust tight and can withstand rigorous washdowns. A keypad membrane cover allows the unit to be easily controlled while still offering complete protection.

We can supply these two energy-efficient, durable and reliable products individually or together as a packaged solution. We can also carry out installation and commissioning, with expert technical support available from our team of ABB-approved engineers.

Here are some of the food and beverage applications compatible with this motor/drive package:

  • Meat and poultry processing
