Interroll upgrades 127i drum motor for food processing
August 4, 2008 — Providing a high performance, space-saving motor drive solution, Interroll’s redesigned Drum Motor 127i features an internal gearing system with a 97% efficiency that lowers energy consumption and reduces noise levels while operating at full capacity. Ideal for OEMs of specialty machinery, automation integrators, plant engineers and end-users in the food processing industry, the thermally protected 127i Drum Motor meets IP67 protection standards and features spring-loaded and labyrinth seals that prevent contamination and oil loss in conveying systems that operate in food processing and high demand industries.

The internal gearing system features no external moving parts, making the Drum Motor 127i safe and quiet.

The Drum Motor 127i features a space-saving design available with 3-phase motors for designers who are searching for a simple component that minimizes space in driving systems. Interroll’s Drum Motor 127i has a conveying speed up to 315 fpm with 1.0 HP. The drum motor can operate in temperatures up to 104°F and is virtually maintenance free, with oil changes are recommended every 20,000 hours.

The Drum Motor 127i is available with numerous options, including; a stainless steel exterior, rubbing lagging, mechanical backstop, parallel shell (no crown), sprocket mounting and matching idler pulleys.

“Our new Drum Motor 127i is a self-contained unit that requires less electrical power than other standard drives and reduces frictional losses between the motor and gearbox,” said Ken Cowlin, Interroll National Director Sales and Marketing. “The 127i is a safer, higher-performing, space-saving solution that handles higher work loads and drives longer belt conveyors with increased product weights.”
