The drum motor is a one-component conveyor drive where the motor, gear reducer and all moving parts are enclosed inside the drum. The motor and gear reducer operate in a sealed oil bath ensuring proper lubrication and cooling. The compact design of the drum motor provides space savings, efficiency and reliability when compared to conventional drive packages.
- No external moving parts increases operator safety
- Compact single unit design enhances space utilization
- 96% mechanical efficiency reduces energy costs
- No maintenance reduces operating costs
The Van der Graaf Drum Motor is a one component conveyor drive which houses all components internally, eliminating the need for external components like motor, gearbox, sprockets, chain, chain guard and pillow block bearings. This reduces operating and maintenance costs, improves safety conditions, and because it is completely sealed our drum motors can operate in extreme environmental conditions.
The rugged design of the Van der Graaf drum motor provides the end user with a quieter environment, space savings, efficiency and reliability with virtually no maintenance. The drum motor offers a versatile, less complex and more efficient way to power your belt conveyor.
