Valipile installed 23 new conveyors in their production site, all fitted with bearing houses. One of the sections on the conveyor is under constant wash down. It was necessary to find a completely sealed bearing house solution.
The Maintenance Manager at Valipile received a catalogue from NGI and reached out for further assistance.
Valipile was interested in the selection of certified hygienic bearing houses which are completely sealed and optimizes the hygiene of their production line.
Valipile says: “NGI’s new certified hygienic bearing houses were the perfect solution for us and after the test we could conclude that the bearings are completely dry inside and there is no water inside the bearing house. There is zero maintenance because we don’t need to lubricate the bearings. Furthermore, as the bearings are completely dry and not exposed to water, there is no sign of rust. As a result of this, we will consider exchanging all the bearings on our existing equipment and incorporate hygienic IP69K bearings from NGI into our technical documentation for future projects”.
