Increase Productivity with Motorized Conveyor Belt Pulleys
Unlike a conventional drive system, motorized conveyor pulleys have no chains or V-belts to tighten or replace; no sprockets to align, clean, or lubricate; no bearings to grease, and don't require chain guards that need replacing.
Motorized Conveyor Belt Pulleys — Simple, Powerful, and Low Maintenance
A single, one-piece motorized conveyor pulley is easy to install and can power your belt conveyor for years without breakdown. Gearing is made of high alloy steel instead of plastic. The only maintenance required is an oil change after 25,000 hours—No disassembly required.
The result? Almost no maintenance or downtime which means lower costs and higher productivity.
Compact Size for a Safer and Cleaner Operation
Unlike bulky conventional drive systems that fit externally on a conveyor, a motorized conveyor pulley is actually part of the conveyor and much more compact, so you can fit more conveyors into less floor or overhead space.
Also, all moving parts are enclosed in a steel pulley shell, eliminating hazardous moving parts and pinch points, along with the potential for electric shock from water on motors. Motorized pulleys are 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.
A cost-effective alternative to conventional conveyor drive systems
Motorized pulleys are competitively-priced and are more energy efficient, which leads to increased cost-savings.
For example, a conventional system normally transfers only 60-75% of its mechanical efficiency (horsepower) to the belt. DURA-DRIVE PLUS transfers 95% of its capacity to the belt – a 20-35% increase.
These savings can translate into a reduction of hundreds of dollars in energy costs – per drive, per year. When you add in the reduced maintenance costs – per drive, per year – it’s easy to see how motorized pulleys can quickly pay for themselves, in a matter of months.
