Retrofit of bearing houses lead to optimization of hygiene and safety while reducing the maintenance
The current solution created the following challenges: The bearing houses are open and chocolate can come inside the bearings and more time is spent on cleaning and removing leftovers/food residues on the bearings before greasing them. Furthermore, each bearing must be lubricated with food-approved grease and by qualified personnel due to official greasing instructions.
The new solution resulted in the following advantages: After having tested NGI’s hygienic bearing houses for almost two months in our production, we could conclude that they were the perfect solution as they require zero maintenance. The bearings are lubrication-free, which results in significant resource savings. Furthermore, the retrofit of the bearing houses provides a significant improvement in hygienic design, which gives additional safety in the production
