This 'end of service announcement' applies to customers that operate a Stork TREC rehanger (Automatic Transfer from Evisceration to the Chilling Line) and/or a Stork TRCS (Automatic Transfer from Chilling to the Selection Line) with weighing option.
Our current supplier of the Baldor drives and motors, used in the assemblies 'Transport' and 'Speed compensator', no longer guarantees a reliable service backup. Soon these motors and drives will become obsolete.
In order to enable proper Marel Stork service support, you will have to modify the 'Transport' and 'Speed compensator' assemblies: motors and drives have to be replaced.
For this necessary modification, a modification kit is available from Marel Stork. This kit includes:
For customers with a Baldor 20-tooth drive pulley:
For customers with a Baldor 10-tooth drive pulley:
Changing over from a Baldor 10-tooth drive pulley to the 20-tooth version has clear mechanical benefits.
With the new drives and motors, we can secure proper lifecycle service support.
We strongly advise you to call your service contact at Marel Stork to discover the best solution for you.
