Case Study

Building trust and working in partnership with our resale customer at a Biomass power station.


A biomass power station was having reliability problems with an existing worm and wheel geared motor on a scraper chain drive application.

The existing unit had worked fine in the past but increased production meant they were now experiencing issues with stalling. Unless the issue was tackled, gearbox failure was a likely prospect, something the end user needed to avoid on such a critical application.


I visited the end user on behalf a local resale customer who supplied the site with power transmission products during a planned shutdown.

I surveyed the existing configuration and put forward some ideas to up-rate the solution to increase the torque performance of the existing set up. In the end a new Motovario bevel helical gear unit was selected that doubled the torque performance of the existing unit which we were able to deliver from our substantial stock. We supported the end user further by working with their engineers to come up with a new base plate for the geared unit to aid installation and future maintenance during planned shut downs.

It was a great result for the end user and only went to strengthen the relationship between all three parties. I took great satisfaction from knowing our input really helped both customers.

New Product

Motovario offers a wide range of gearmotors suitable to operate in humid and corrosive environments, such as food industry (meat, fish, fruit and vegetables), pharmaceutical industry and marine applications.

Clean Duty

Motor and gear reducer are designed and manufactured with treatments able to increase their resistance and reliability characteristics and ensure resistance to wear using specific products for environment sanitisation.

The chemical treatment applied to the gear reducer casing, and the use of AISI stainless steel components make CLEAN DUTY a product suitable for various application requirements.

The chemical treatment and the use of the round casing effectively prevent water and dirt from stagnating and depositing.
