The all 316 stainless steel continuous profiled SSV Sanitary Drum Motor has the belt profile machined directly onto the drum to drive modular, wire mesh and monolithic thermoplastic belt conveyors, without the use of sprockets.
The continuous profiled Van der Graaf (VDG) drum motor does not have crevices for food by-products to get trapped, reduces conveyor-cleaning time and eliminates areas for bacteria to harbor, contributing to a higher level of sanitation.
