Interroll releases 220 Series drum motors
The 220 Series is a self-contained unit, as the motor, gearbox and bearings are enclosed in a steel shell. The enclosure makes the drum motor ideal for harsh environment applications, as the internal gearing system is protected from dust, water, oil, grease, chemicals or other harmful substances. In addition to reducing maintenance costs, the steel enclosure provides a space-saving design that improves safety and decreases noise-levels while operating at full capacity. The 220 Series is IP66/67 food grade approved.
The 220 Series drum motor is available in two versions. The 220M is specifically designed for medium duty loads and can match irregular load conditions for normal heavy unit handling applications. The 220H is designed for heavy duty loads and features a 3-stage gearbox and stronger bearings to fulfil the requirements of heavy unit handling at low speeds, high torques and high belt tensions.
The 220 Series drum motor is available with numerous options, including; a crowned mild steel shell to ensure belt tracking, rubber hot vulcanized lagging, mechanical backstop, parallel shell (no crown), sprocket mounting and matching idler pulleys.
