Customer Success Story: STOBER Eliminates Water Ingress Failures

STOBER was visiting a midwestern brewery who was experiencing frequent failures with a  competitor’s gearbox. The units were failing on the brewery’s filler infeed conveyor. This conveyor was cleansed every day. The sanitation process involved spraying all equipment with heavy chemicals to prevent bacteria growth. The competitor’s gearbox could not handle the harsh washdowns. The seals corroded and allow ingress to contaminate the lubrication. The gear reducers failed every 1-2 months.

The customer agreed to using a STOBER gearbox in their harsh environment. Since STOBER reducers require no maintenance and are IP69K Certified against water ingress, no contamination occurred. Our dual output seals prevented any water from entering the unit. The brewery saved a tremendous amount of money since there were no failures and STOBER units lasted over 8 years. They also enjoyed extended durability and reliability in their operations.
