As a contract brewery Octopi Brewing produces a wide range of beer types and usually processes about 1,000 to 2,000 kg of grain for each brew. For demanding tasks in the brewing process the company selected machinery with reliable and energy efficient drive technology and uses a NORD parallel shaft geared motor for the agitator in the mash tun and a NORD bevelled gear motor on the lauter tun raking machine, each equipped with a 3.7 kW motor. These powerful drives guarantee uninterrupted processes and smooth operation. "This is the best technology which we have in use. It is reliable and can handle everything which we demand – even beyond the limits", says Isaac Showaki, Managing Director of Octopi Brewing about the mash and lauter tuns.

NORD has extensive know-how in the beverage industry and supplies industry-optimised drive products for all production tasks, e.g. pumps, mixers, agitators, air conditioning and ventilation technology and for moving, positioning, metering, bottling, packaging, conveying and storage. The robust, durable and cost-effective gear units, motors and drive technology from NORD are available with a large range of gear ratios and with reinforced bearings.
