Now, belt and plastic modular-belt varieties of CleanMove Standard conveyors from mk North America are available with an inner drive. Conveyors with these drives can deliver speeds to 250 fpm and are suitable for horizontal, incline, and Z-shaped conveying applications.
Conveyor inner-drive features
The conveyor inner drive takes the form of an energy-efficient permanent-magnet drum motor. Because the motor is oil-free, it’s safe for inclusion on conveyors that transport food. The inner drive option makes for more compact conveyor designs than those based externally mounted motors. In addition, conveyors that include this drive technology are easier to clean due to the integrated motor format. All of these benefits ultimately lower per-conveyor operating costs.

CleanMove Standard conveyors for handling packaged food or pharmaceuticals in relatively dry environments
CleanMove Plus conveyors for processing bakery goods, snacks, and fruits and vegetables
CleanMove Ultra conveyors for caustic settings subject to high-pressure washdown — whether clean in place (CIP) or Clean Out of Place (COP). CleanMove Ultra conveyors are employed in facilities that process raw meats, poultry, fish, and dairy products.
