What gearbox is eco-friendly and ideal for the Food & Beverage industry?

Sumitomo is a company striving to "Go Green" and we understand that this means more than just minimizing environmental impact and eliminating hazardous substances.  We know it also requires conserving natural resources and improving efficiency while keeping life cycle costs low.

Maintenance-free grease lubrication and exceptionally long service life make Sumitomo's Hyponic an ideal eco-friendly gearbox for your Food & Beverage application needs.  Hyopnic units feature a non-vented, grease lubricated design suitable for universal mounting with any shaft orientation.  Grease lubrication maximizes mounting flexibility, eliminates oil leaks and oil changes, while the non-vented design helps eliminate the entry of water.

As an option for customers requiring food-grade lubricants, Sumitomo pre-fills Hyponic units with Fuchs Geralyn AX SGG 000 grease-- a state of the art synthetic National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) H1 lubricant suitable for incidental food contact that provides higher efficiency and longer life in a wide variety of conditions.
