Special requirements regarding hygiene and cleaning are necessary in the production areas of the food and beverage industry. This is due to the sensitivity of the products and their perishable nature. For this reason, most equipment and production machines are made of stainless steel, permitting thorough cleaning once production has ended. Stainless steel also allows the use of acid or alkali-based cleaning agents which, in combination with disinfectants, ensure that all relevant germs and bacteria are destroyed. The Bauer Aseptic Drive is a combination of an asynchronous motor with a smooth surface (without cooling ribs and fan) and a gearbox from the renowned Bauer 2000 range.
