With its unique NORD nsd tupH surface protection, Nord Drivesystems offers corrosion protection normally associated with stainless steel. It can be combined with flexible modular drive products. The drive solutions are available in several sizes as worm gear, parallel gear, parallel shaft gear or bevel gear units, completely available with smooth motor and respective drive electronics.
The innovative nsd tupH surface treatment from Nord Drivesystems makes aluminium drives as corrosion resistant as the stainless steel versions
In the food industry, plant and machinery as well as the drive technology that is used must be efficiently protected against dirt, moisture, spray water and aggressive media. However, painted systems are prone to even minor damage and do not offer permanent protection. Drive units made from stainless steel are relatively expensive. nsd tupH corrosion protection treatment from Nord Drivesystems is an economical alternative for aluminium drive housings that considerably prolongs the service life of the installed components in harsh environments. A Nord Drivesystems’ white paper on corrosion-resistant drive solutions for hygienic production can now be downloaded. nsd tupH treatment is available for most of the Nord modular drive system from aluminium, which includes various gear unit series, smooth motors and decentralised drive electronics.
Suitable for many industrial applications
As the drives’ surfaces are exposed to scratches and impacts in industrial environments, even high-quality anti-corrosion coatings do not provide effective protection. Once the surface has been damaged, it is often infiltrated by corrosion and also repairs do not permanently help.
With nsd tupH treatment, the surface is significantly more robust than a paint coating, and even slight impairment remains limited to the damaged area. The nsd tupH drives are not only suitable for hygienically sensitive applications in the food sector but also for various applications in process and pharmaceutical industries. They are typically used on conveyor belts, pumps, mixers or agitators, but also in water and sewage plants and car wash facilities.
