”As part of Arla Maintenance it is crucial that the machines are up and running all the time. If we need to have extra downtime it will be a problem

Per Kaster NielsenMaintenance, Arla

The Challenge

Arla’s dairy in Rødkærsbro (Roedkaersbro), Denmark, is the largest mozzarella production site in Europe. The dairy had a problem with some of the pumps in their production area, because the vibrations of the pumps were so severe that they caused holes in the floor underneath them. This was a problem in relation to maintenance as well as hygiene.

The Solution

A local maintenance engineer asked NGI for assistance, and NGI retrofitted the feet under the pumps with NGI certified hygienic levelling feet.

The Effect

The new feet levelled out the vibrations of the pumps and there was no longer a problem with holes in the floor. This made maintenance easier, optimized the uptime of the machinery and increased the overall hygiene of the production area. The retrofitting has, in other words, saved Arla money because they no longer have to stop production and fix holes, and it has, also improved the general hygiene.
