Prestige Conveyors offer a complete range of drum motors for powering conveyors in a range of industrial applications from the food industry to general bulk handling.
Drum motors use high quality internal gears and a number of innovative design features to provide both high reliability and precise operation.
Options include stainless steel components; advanced sealing and a range of drum surface coverings for driving various types of conveyor belts. Power ratings range from 0.018kw to 5.5kw and drum diameters from 82mm to 320mm. We also offer a full refurbishment service for any make or size of drum motor.
Modular Belt Drive
Fabric Belt Drive
Tests have identified conventional external geared motor systems as being the main source of contamination in food processing. Drum Motors, however, substantially reduce this risk due to the smooth profiled stainless steel finish, hermetically sealed and totally enclosed design.
Drum Motors have a much higher efficiency than conventional drives used in the material handling industry, which normally transfer approximately 75% of their mechanical efficiency to the belt, compared to the Drum motor which transfers up to 97%.
Because the motor, gearbox and bearings are mounted within the drum shell, the drum motor takes up much less space than conventional drives such as gear motors. No need for costly extras like chains, v-belts, couplings, bearings, support structures and special guarding.
Safe and sound working environment
A Drum Motor enhances the safety of your working environment. As a self-contained component without protruding parts and with fixed external shafts, it is probably the safest drive unit available for state-of-the-art material handling equipment. The only moving parts are the drum shell and bearing housings. What is more, drum motors incorporating durable high grade polished steel gears, reduce previous sound levels by 18% and are therefore quieter than many other drives found in the market today.
End-users benefit from a Drum Motor because it requires absolutely no maintenance. The sealed-for-life drum motor design ensures trouble-free conveying of foodstuffs, unit loads or parts under the most arduous conditions. No maintenance results in lower operating costs and higher productivity.
