Dorner’s AquaGard sanitary stainless steel conveyor platform
now comes with a center drive motor option. Designed for the AquaGard 7360
Series, the center drive belt conveyor offers a longer belt life–as much as
five times longer life span–than end drive models. That’s because the conveyor
belt has more room to stretch with the additional belt take up available in the
center drive unit. Plus, this cost-saving benefit is available with a
maintenance free constant-stretch design. Additionally, the center drive
provides added durability, which means less wear and tear for longer belt life.
Lastly, center drive conveyors allow for longer length conveyors all the way up
to 83 ft., reducing the number of conveyors and drives required to move product
For applications requiring more in-depth cleaning, the 7360
Series center drive conveyor opens up on both tail ends for enhanced access,
and also comes with either a pneumatic or spring-loaded take-up mechanism to
quickly tighten and secure the belt. Belt removal and cleaning time is more
efficient thanks to the patented three-roller design that allows for quick
access to the center drive.
