The Van der Graaf “G.V.” Drum Motor is a design that combines innovation and precision craftsmanship – delivering solid and reliable performance across the complete range of belt conveying applications.
The Van der Graaf “G.V.” Drum Motor is a completely self-contained, motorized pulley drive unit. All vital components are housed internally and isolated from the environment. Having no external components means…
- Increased Operator Safety
- Enhanced Space Utility
- Minimal Maintenance Requirements
- Easy Installation
- Ability to withstand High Pressure Wash Down (1000 psi)
- Improved Reliability
The Van der Graaf “G.V.” Drum Motor utilized a stationary shaft eliminating the need for pillow block bearings. Because the gears are continuously bathed in oil, the unit is able to achieve effective heat dissipation and extremely low noise levels. Power supply is direct to the stator, with no slip rings or brushes.
Due to it’s advanced design, the unit is virtually maintenance free – requiring only periodic oil changes to be carried out every 50,000 hours of operation – without dismounting the unit from the conveyor frame.
The unit is easily installed and quickly replaced. In the event that the modification or repair is necessary, Van der Graaf will fully service each and every customer.
