Study compares drum motors and gear motors in the food industry

13 March 2017

The Department of Food Science at the University of Parma in Italy, in collaboration with the Interroll Group, has carried out a comparison between two distinct drive technologies: traditional gear motors against Interroll drum motors. 

Prof. Davide Barbanti and his research team conducted a comparison along six evaluation criteria: hygiene, installation and maintenance, energy efficiency, noise, working temperature and space requirements

Three cases were designed to simulate different areas of a food processing plant – from a washdown application to a packaging line – over a nine-month period. Interroll says the results showed from a food safety point the drum motor was particularly attractive technology for conveyor belts.
