Hygienic Design Motors

Safety through Hygienic Design

High demands have always been placed on the production of food and pharmaceutical products in order to ensure reliable consumer protection. These requirements must also be met by all production components used. Against this background, GEORGII KOBOLD offers gearmotors and torque motors in Hygienic Design, where the use of aggressive and effective cleaning and disinfection agents as well as high-pressure cleaners is possible and which we can specifically adapt to your different requirements.


Hygienic design motors for special food areas

In the field of food production, hygiene is paramount. Therefore, production facilities should be designed according to the principles of hygienic design to ensure the quality of the produced goods. This prevents the production line from coming to a standstill due to germs or contamination and protects the health of consumers.

In order to remove dirt and germs, the equipment must be cleaned regularly and cleaned with aggressive and acidic cleaning agents or high-pressure cleaners. All components must be able to withstand a wide range of stresses on a permanent basis and remain leak-proof and functional so that they do not provide a breeding ground for germs either through shape or material.


Division into three hygiene zones

In order to meet hygiene standards and requirements, a distinction must be made between three different hygiene zones when constructing the plants. The division is made into the hygienic design zone, the spray zone and the non-product zone. The basic rule for this division is that the closer a component is to the food, the higher the requirements placed on it.

You can find out what requirements are placed on the individual zones on the following linked pages.
