Trostyanets’ chocolate factory
Trostyanets’ chocolate factory; Mondelez Ukraine has a number of conveyors & equipment in the wet environment that are under constant water influence and require extra protection. Furthermore, the dry areas have problems with dust and dry particles which can come into the bearings and significantly decrease the performance of the bearings. Therefore, it is essential when selecting hygienic components such as a bearing house that they can endure harsh cleaning conditions while maintaining optimal performance and providing excellent hygienic properties.
After a detailed discussion with the Equipment Maintenance Engineer, it was possible to identify and provide physical samples of the hygienic bearing houses, which were a perfect fit instead of the existing solutions.
"After having tested NGI’s hygienic bearing houses for almost two months in our production, we could conclude that they were the perfect solution as they require zero maintenance. The bearings are lubrication-free, which results in significant resource savings. Furthermore, the retrofit of the bearing houses provides a significant improvement in hygienic design, which gives additional safety in the production. As a result of this, we will consider continuously exchanging all the bearing houses on our existing conveyor equipment and incorporate hygienic IP69K bearing houses from NGI into our technical documentation for future projects sent to suppliers."
