Interroll has developed the Interroll Multiprofile, a new profile for its asynchronous drum motors and synchronous drum motors that feature frequency converters, which can be used to drive various conveyor belts from different manufacturers using only one Interroll Premium Hygienic PU Profile. This translates into higher flexibility for customers because they can replace belts without having to replace the drum motor. This reduces the time needed to retrofit and perform maintenance work on the conveyors quite significantly. Furthermore, Interroll’s Multiprofile contributes to lower storage and thus saves customers money and storage space.
The Interroll Multiprofile is manufactured using the “Interroll Premium Hygienic PU” which is also a new development. This extremely hygiene-friendly material complements the Interroll product line that meets EHEDG guidelines. The new material for rubber coating drum motors is particularly well suited for positively driven belts and is known for its extremely smooth surface that prevents bacteria from forming on the material. Besides the low noise level and its high resistance to oil, grease and chemicals, the Interroll Premium Hygienic PU also stands out due to its much lower friction.
