For Varvel, the chemicals sector includes not only businesses that concentrate on the properties and alterations to which products and materials are subject, but also those concerning pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

Varvel’s in-depth knowledge of the sector and the many requirements of the industry also allow it to create custom solutions to meet specific requirements among its international clientele, preparing targeted methods for adapting to all possible operations and stresses from the most demanding environments, which require compliance with high safety standards to protect people, the environment and the machinery used.

In particular, Varvel gearboxes permit the operation of systems for the surface treatment of metals, mixing paints or powder coatings, creating plastic materials and packaging pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products.

Varvel also produces cast-iron gearboxes, coated with twopart epoxy paints and featuring considerable resistance to wear, vibration and corrosion, proving components capable of delivering excellent long-term performance and limited maintenance requirements.

Finally, almost all products in the Varvel range are available in an ATEX version, and therefore suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres or in the presence of high fire risk, where machinery is exposed to emissions of gas or highly flammable dust. This makes Varvel a reliable partner with worldwide recognition from the main producers in the sector.
