Manufacturing drum motors for the past 30 years in the USA and Canada, Van der Graaf continues to adhere to a simple principle; design a superior product to meet customer needs in a changing marketplace. A drum motor is a one component conveyor drive where the motor, gear drive and all moving parts are enclosed inside the drum. The motor and gears operate in a sealed oil bath ensuring proper lubrication and cooling. With no external motor, gear reducer, sprockets, chain or OSHA required chain guard, no external component maintenance is required. SSV Sanitary Drum Motors are designed and engineered specifically for the food industry. The USDA approved sanitary series drum motors meet and exceed the highest level of sanitation requirements. The all stainless steel construction IP69K sealing system can withstand up to 3,000 psi wash down pressure.
