For those of you who are unfamiliar with Gatorade or who might have thought it was a soft drink distilled from the teardrops of large amphibians, you should know that it is a sports energy drink, first formulated in the 1960s to provide replacement fluids and electrolytes lost through sweating and exercise. The Florida 'Gators', for whom it was developed, were so successful in outlasting their opponents that football teams across America have adopted Gatorade as their official sports drink to help make their players last longer on the field.
... now lasting longer with Enviropeel
At the PepsiCo Gatorade plant in Indianapolis, engineers were hoping to make their machinery last longer when they introduced Enviropeel on elements of their production equipment that were suffering from the affects of corrosion and water ingress. The Gatorade product is heated during the bottling process and runs through large coolers where it is subject to a water deluge. The gearboxes and bearings in the coolers are therefore exposed to a constant deluge of water, causing them to fail prematurely.
The first Enviropeel applications at the plant were introduced three years ago where they have more than tripled the lifespan of the protected equipment. Recently, more applications have been undertaken by Enviropeel USA on additional equipment, as these 'before and after' images show. Blue was the colour chosen by PepsiCo as being the most appropriate for their needs but Enviropeel can be supplied in a variety of standard colours - and almost any colour to order.
Enviropeel USA, together with sister company Alocit USA, are the main distributors and licence holders for Enviropeel and Alocit products throughout the Americas. Contact details are available on their website www.enviropeelusa.com.
