Product handling and vibratory equipment manufacturer Enmin has introduced a new range of electromagnetic drives that feature an innovative Teflon coating. This article first appeared in the August 2021 issue of Food and Drink Business.

Enmin are the only company manufacturing electromagnetic drives in Australia, which offer a unique handling method for controlling the flow of product, parts and bulk materials. Products can be screened, sized, or accurately metered to ensure a smooth, uniform and fully variable flow.

Enmin general manager Anthony Gallaher says the Teflon coating provides greater cathodic protection thereby eliminating surface rust, making it the ideal surface finish for a food environment that undergoes harsh cleaning and washdown environments. “We have always strived to build reliable, durable equipment that can cope with the toughest environments. Our drives are no exception and with minimal moving parts they provide years of trouble-free operation. There is next to no on-going maintenance and have low energy consumption, ensuring a reliable, low-cost method of product handling,” Gallaher says.
