Electric motors used in the food industry. The power of Kolmer

The food industry has developed a great deal in recent years. Food products should not only be harvested speedily but should also be quickly available in the shop ensuring as much freshness as possible. Whether it concerns the processing of heads of lettuce or the production of beer; automation can be found everywhere. Many processes are controlled from a central computer system, but as soon as the end product has to be transported, that’s where electric motors come in handy.

Electric motors are widely used in the food industry. Hence the demand for a wide range of electric motors. We, at Kolmer Electric Motors, have that wide range of electric motors you are looking for. In consultation with you, we will look for the right electric motor for your specific situation.

Hygiene comes first in the food industry

Hygiene is, of course, a priority in the food industry. This is why the paint on electric motors should be critically inspected. After all, there are strict rules that prohibit any paint residue ending up in the end product. Strict rules that we, at Kolmer Electric Motors, obviously comply with for the simple reason that our electric motors can withstand intensive handling.

In addition, a clean environment is also a condition. This means that the installations must be cleaned quite often (if necessary every day). A thorough cleaning always comes with a large amount of water that could have a negative effect on the operation of the electric motor. This can be prevented if you opt for increasing the electric motor protection class. There are even motors available that can withstand the direct impact of a high pressure cleaner.

Machines with an increased energy-efficiency

The challenge for our customers is to constantly improve their machines, to make them more efficient and to meet the trends in the food industry. In this respect, energy consumption should also be taken into account. Energy costs are often ‘hidden’ costs for an end user.

Research has shown that the costs of an electric motor over its entire life span can be spread over purchase 3%, maintenance 2% and energy costs 95%. Realising a better motor efficiency is where you could really save a lot of money. By taking a critical look at the application, there are always a few adjustments to be made that lead to a more efficient machine. An interesting topic about which we, at Kolmer Electric Motors, would like to share some thoughts and ideas. Your challenge is our challenge.

Customised/custom-made solutions are key

As electric motors can be used for all sorts of automation purposes in the food industry, customised/custom-made solutions are an obvious choice. We always focus on customised/custom-made solutions. Supplying customer-specific electric motors is based on a thorough understanding of current developments and technologies. This requires knowledge, skills and experience.

Kolmer Top Coating

An engine that does not flake and does not rust, that is our goal when we start an extensive research project in 2016. We develop a coating that does hold and the test results exceed all expectations. Engines keep looking great year after year, no matter the conditions. TNO is testing the safety and we are now fully in production. Kolmer Top Coating anchors itself through the paint layer in the underlying aluminum and cast iron. A water-thin, super strong layer that protects for years and can be used on all our Cantoni and a selection of EMF and Cemp engines.
