Improved hygiene and cleanability

We enjoy a close and good cooperation with suppliers of equipment and machinery for the food industry, where a high degree of hygiene and cleanability are key requirements. BJ-Gear A/S meets these requirements with our standard range of hygienic actuators, gearboxes, worm gear screw jacks and geared motors in stainless steel. Our stainless steel products are ideal for mounting directly in the process areas without a protective stainless steel shield. This eliminates a source of hidden bacterial growth. 

Our hygienic stainless steel gearboxes and actuators are made with a machined flat surface without unnecessary ribs, flanges, recesses and mounting holes in order to simplify cleaning and to minimise bacterial risk further. 

BJ-Gear's strengths comprise

  • Extensive technical expertise and engineering capabilities.
  • High competence in hygienic actuators, gears and gear motors in stainless steel.
  • Wide range of standard gearboxes, actuators, motors, brakes, encoders, couplings etc. for quick delivery.
  • High competence in product adaptation and development of special products - even in smaller numbers.
  • Replacement products and spare part guarantee throughout the equipment life.
  • 2011 First NG-bearing installed at Bubs - and still running
  • 1m foam kisses produced each day at Samba
  • 1000 revolution per minute for a tail cutter at Marel Støvring
  • -18°C is the temperature of the mussels before shipment

Case: NG-bearings in candy production
