NORD Drivesystems

Resilient, seawater-resistant drive systems for seafood factory conveyors

Mussels, clams, oysters and other shellfish must be served fresh and remain alive until the very moment they are cooked. Hence, factories specializing in these delicacies tend to keep fresh catches submerged in salt water before they are processed. In such facilities, all machinery used for cleaning, sorting, and packaging shellfish products is inevitably exposed to the seawater-infused environment. An aggressive atmosphere like that takes a heavy toll e.g. on regular conveyor drives. However, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has recently introduced an innovative surface treatment to toughen drives for just such areas of operation.
