K&W Transmissies has experience in the canning industrie with the different water treatment methods, which are applied in the sterilization towers.
In the development of the conveyor chains, which are also known as sterilization chains, in the canning industry, knowledge of the properties of the various types of material, such as steel, bronze and stainless steel, is required since the application in the various conveyor systems is different every time. K&W Transmissies has experience with the different water treatment methods, which are applied in the sterilization towers. Moreover, the type of vegetables and geographical location of the business have an influence on the material of the chain. Corrosion and wear is a formidable foe for these chains. Unexpected failure or breakage of the chain can lead to serious consequences for the continuity of the production process. K&W Transmissies has successfully supervised several projects in the canning industry and by doing so was able to realize an impressive extension of the service life of the chain. Lubrication-free versions are also possible, to meet the strict hygiene requirements and minimize maintenance costs.
