Food & Medicine

Hygienic, corrosion resistant and available.

The food industry places the highest demands on hygiene and cleanliness. This applies to people, machines and components. Dirt buildup on equipment must be largely eliminated, or at least easily removed. Toxic contamination of the goods produced by the lubricants used must be avoided 100 percent. The machines and components must be corrosion-resistant, even with regular and intensive cleaning. Highest availability, energy efficiency and dynamics of the components are our claim for every ATEK gear unit. For applications in the food industry, for example, the HDV stainless steel series offers high power density, durability and availability with low surface roughness (center roughness value < 0.8 = reduced dirt adhesion). We also supply food-grade lubricants (NSF H1).
