About VDG (Van der Graaf)

Designing and manufacturing drum motors for belt conveyor applications for over 35 years, VDG (Van der Graaf) is the market leader in sanitary design for food processing facilities. The innovative, streamlined VDG Drum Motor has all drive components including motor and gearbox enclosed inside the drum for a safer, more efficient, and space optimized belt drive solution. Reducing energy expenses by 30% per drive, all components of the VDG Drum Motor are designed for 80,000 hours of continuous operation before maintenance, minimizing downtime, reducing maintenance costs, and increasing production. In food processing plants where sanitation is paramount, the all-316 stainless steel SSV Sanitary Series drum motor features an IP69K sealing system that withstands up to 3,000 psi washdown pressure. The USDA approved SSV drum motor has the belt profile machined directly onto the drum to drive modular, wire belt, and monolithic thermoplastic conveyor belts without the use of sprockets, eliminating foreign material contamination and areas for bacterial harborage. The sprocketless SSV Drum Motor cuts washdown time and water consumption by 50%, further minimizing downtime. All VDG Drum Motors are engineered and manufactured in-house in USA and Canada, using cutting-edge production technology, ensuring quality control, fast delivery, and after sales service. With global representation and service centers throughout the USA, VDG offers customized solutions to a wide customer base.
