Operating for 35 years, VDG (Van der Graaf) is the premier manufacturer of drum motors for belt conveyors, providing innovative solutions to industry challenges in the food, processing, and material handling industries. The VDG drum motor design encloses the motor, gear reducer, bearings, and all moving components inside the drum, eliminating the hazards posed by traditional external drive configurations, increasing operator safety, efficiency, and maximizing space utilization.
For applications where sanitation is paramount, VDG has designed the all stainless steel SSV Sanitary Series drum motor to drive modular, wire mesh and monolithic thermoplastic conveyor belts without the use of sprockets, eliminating foreign material contamination and cutting conveyor washdown time by up to 50%. It features an IP69K rated sealing system and withstands washdown pressure up to 3,000 psi. The VDG Sanitary Series drum motors offer a safe, maintenance-free, and energy efficient solution for belt conveyor applications in the food and dairy handling industry.
