New coating for aseptic geared motors is corrosion and scratch resistant

28 January 2018

SEW Eurodrive has launched a new coating for aseptic geared motors that provides protection against chipping, flaking, scratching and corrosion. 

The new XCO package offers an alternative to stainless steel and is designed for use in industries where chipping or flaking paint on drive components poses a contamination risk.

The XCO drive package is SEW’s eXtreme Corrosion Option and is a tin-nickel surface coating with the appearance of stainless steel. Due to its hardness – approximately 645HV – the surface is scratch resistant and will not come off as a result of wear, flaking or chippings.

Designed for use in industries where equipment may be subject to frequent wash-downs, the XCO drive package is approved for short-time contact with food, according to 1935/2004/EC. Also, in addition to the surface protection with high corrosion resistance and a scratch resistant surface, the XCO package includes, stainless steel screws, IS plug connectors, stainless steel nameplate and a pressure compensation membrane.
