Case Study: Coastal Manufacturing/Taylor Farms

Mark Hoffseth, president of Coastal Manufacturing, talks about their experience with the Van der Graaf drum motor, why they use it and why their clients have upgraded their old systems to the drum motor. 

...we experienced about a 3-5% failure rate, during the first year, on the motor and gearbox, and once we switched to Van der Graaf, that failure rate during the first year, dropped to about 1%, and we've even had years with 0% failure rate - Mark Hoffseth

Jorge Sanchez of Taylor Farms also shares how the Van der Graaf drum motor has helped increase sanitation and safety in their facility.

Upcoming Trade Show: IPPE 2018

At IPPE 2018, Van der Graaf will showcase two new belt-drive solutions to address equipment sanitation. The all stainless steel sprockets and all stainless steel continuous profile design for driving modular and extruded belts. While nylon and acetyl sprockets are still available, the strength and wear resistance of the all stainless steel sprockets and continuous profile design will prolong maintenance cycles and reduce maintenance cost.
