Enclosed Interroll Belt Drives Provide High Efficiency, Low Noise


Wilmington, N.C. (March 27, 2006) — Interroll Corporation has developed a series of belt drives, ranging from 80mm to 216mm, that improves work environment efficiency and safety. Specifically designed for material handling applications, Interroll belt drives are completely enclosed and sealed inside a steel shell, preventing environmental conditions such as water, dust, grit, chemicals, grease and oil from affecting the performance of the belt drive. Also, because the drive unit and bearings are mounted within the protective shell, the belt drive takes up less room than a conventional drive with significant noise reduction.

“An Interroll belt drive is an efficient space-saving and cost-saving device,” said Andy Haugh, Interroll product manager. “An Interroll Belt Drive has an efficiency up to 97% which is considerably higher than conventional drives. The superior efficiency is attributed to frictional losses inherent to a gear motor.”

The enclosed drive unit saves space and reduces maintenance costs such as extra chains, v-belts, couplings, bearings, support structure and special guards. Interroll belt drives also provide a safer, quieter work environment because the only external moving parts are the belt drive shell and the bearing housings.

The steel shell also acts as a safe guard against the contamination of food, electrical components, plastics and other materials that must be kept clean during handling.

Interroll Belt Drives use fewer parts than a conventional drive, making the Interroll drives less expensive and easier to install. Requiring little to no maintenance, Interroll recommends an oil change every 10,000 hours equalling almost 5 years in between oil changes based on an 8hr/day 5-day working week. The Interroll 80S and the 113S are lubricated for life.

Interroll Belt Drives are available in many diameter sizes including 80mm, 113mm, 138mm, 165mm, and 216mm in single phase 115V or 230V and three phase, 230/400V, 230/460V or 575V, 50/ 60Hz.
