Agricultural conveyors. The power of Kolmer
There are many conveyor belts especially suited for the agricultural industry in many different sizes, lifting angles, widths and heights. Conveyor belts are often rubber mats that rotate on a frame which includes a drive roller. This roller is then often coupled to an electric motor by means of a chain transmission. The electric motor is the heart of the machine, because without a motor the conveyor belt wouldn’t move and stand idle. Kolmer knows that the speed at which a replacement motor can be delivered is crucial in this industry.
Electric motors complying with IEC standards
All electric motors from Kolmer Electric Motors comply with IEC standards. These are internationally recognised standards that are often used as a basis for the harmonisation of technical requirements. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is one of three global organisations that develops and publishes international standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies. IEC standards are used to allow for a faster and more efficient market access and to develop products that are accepted worldwide.
A modern system in conveyor belt construction is equipped with a gearbox to which an IEC electric motor (a standardised motor) is coupled. The great advantage of an IEC motor is that the motor, when it breaks down, can be quickly and easily replaced. This is a requirement for conveyor belt installations in the agricultural sector as they are often only used during the harvest season. These conveyor belts, including drive system, can then easily stand idle for several weeks or even months. There are also several factors that can cause a motor malfunction.
The use of conveyor drive systems in the agricultural sector
The use of conveyor drive systems in the agricultural sector is very extensive. Conveyor belts are not only used for the transport of products, but also for moving manure from the stable to a collection point. Electric motors operating in these kinds of environments need additional protection against aggressive substances from manure. Kolmer Electric Motors offers various solutions for this.
