|NEW DURA-DRIVE™ PLUS vs. Conventional Chain or V-Belt Drive Systems|
By Every Important Measure, It's No Comparison
Unlike conventional drive systems, the new DURA-DRIVE™ PLUS motorized pulley, from Sparks Belting, has no chains or V-belts to tighten or replace, no sprockets to align, clean or lubricate, no bearings to grease, and doesn't require chain guards that need replacing. DURA-DRIVE™ PLUS is actually part of the conveyor and much more compact. That means you can fit more conveyor into less floor or overhead space.
It's a simple - yet small and powerful - one-piece motorized pulley that's guaranteed to power your belt conveyor for years without breakdown. That means lower costs and higher productivity.
All moving parts are enclosed in the stainless steel pulley shell; food grade certified. The shell also eliminates hazardous moving parts and pinch points, along with the potential for electric shock from water on motors. DURA-DRIVE™ PLUS is much cleaner because there's no external grease or oil from chains, bearings or couplings. As a result, you improve worker safety and more readily comply with OSHA standards.
DURA-DRIVE™ PLUS is priced competitively with conventional conveyor belt systems initially... and it's more energy efficient. For example, a conventional system normally transfers only 60-75% of its mechanical efficiency (horsepower) to the conveyor belt. DURA-DRIVE™ PLUS transfers 95% of its capacity to the belt - a 20-35% increase.
