Thomson has introduced Aquatrue planetary gearheads, which are designed to be hermetically sealed and corrosion resistant for applications with strict requirements for water tightness.

These include systems in the food processing and beverage industries in which components are exposed to high-pressure washdown or caustic cleaning chemicals during cleaning operations.

Suitable for applications with stringent hygiene requirements, Aquatrue gearheads are certified in accordance with NSF/ANSI 169 and only lubricants approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are used in all models.

Other applications for Aquatrue planetary gearheads include food packaging, beverage filling machines, waterjet cutting systems, medical technology equipment, pharmaceutical laboratory and production facilities, slicing machines in meat processing and applications with cleaning procedures that utilise high levels of water or chemicals.
