Interroll Introduces IP67 Washdown Rollerdrive for Food Applications

WILMINGTON, N .C. (February 10, 2003) - Designed to serve the food processing and other industries, Interroll Corp. has introduced the IP67 Washdown RollerDrive at the ProMat 2003 Show in Chicago, Illinois. The DC drive elements of the Washdown RollerDrive are sealed and rated to IP67 standards for superior protection from water spray and other corrosive elements. The 24VDC brush and brushless RollerDrive operates with up to 62 in-lbs of starting torque and is especially useful in intermittent operations for stop/start-up applications.

"The food processing industry has a real need for water resistant, non-corrosive, non-contaminative materials handling equipment in this classification," said RollerDrive Global Product Manager, Ken Bobick. "This sealed RollerDrive far exceeds washdown standards of typical chain or belt type rollers where mechanical parts are exposed to water, bacterial collection and corrosion."

The IP67 Washdown RollerDrive operates at speeds of up to 200 FPM. The RollerDrive meets load capacity up to 150lbs and may operate within ambient temperatures 40ºF to 120ºF. The shaft is manufactured of stainless steel for corrosion resistance and is equipped with precision ball bearings (6203). Each RollerDrive comes equipped with a 30" cable if needed, which terminates with a standard connector. Tubes are available in 1.90" diameter.
