The proven Speed Star® concept is also used in food extrusion. Due to the different power and speed requirements compared to compounding, we have developed our own gear units for this industry sector. A special challenge is providing easy access for cleaning to ensure germ-free production. Eisenbeiss meets this challenge with „Hygienic Design“.
This means very smooth surfaces, minimising niches at the gear unit as well as a special design of lubrication components and their wiring. These co-rotating gear units can also be used with food-compatible oils as an option.
The product range consists of gear units for screw diameters between 25 and 240 mm.
