To guarantee a high-quality end product, the environment in the freezer has to be absolutely free from any risk of contamination. Therefore OctoFrost wanted unpainted motors only. The only colorful objects in its industrial freezers should be the food.
To comply with high food safety requirements, ABB skipped the traditional blue coating and delivered motors in plain aluminum. Since August 2014 OctoFrost has been able to install unpainted fan motors from ABB in all its freezers. Unpainted replacements are also available regardless of where in the world the customers are located.
