Drive Solution for Dry, Wet and Aseptic Process Areas

Drive Solution for Dry, Wet and Aseptic Process Areas

The VLT FlexConcept is a complete, highly energy efficient drive solution optimized for use in dry, wet and aseptic process areas.

The VLT FlexConcept is a unified and optimized drive solution specifically engineered to satisfy the efficiency, flexibility and reliability demands of the food and beverage, and packaging industries. The system consists of a highly efficient helical bevel gear driven by a compact permanent magnet motor, and combined with the most efficient inverter drives available today, according to the company.

The VLT FlexConcept consists of the VLT OneGearDrive, the VLT Decentral Drive FCD 302 and/or the VLT AutomationDrive FC 302. The OneGearDrive features a smooth, crevice-free design with no place for food contamination to hide. Additionally, each component features a durable coating that withstands even the harshest cleaning chemicals and washdown processes. All enclosures are designed to IP66/67 and IP69K, and satisfy DIN 1672-2 Hygienic Design standards.

The VLT FlexConcept supports AC or PM motors for simple or dynamic applications, and can operate open- or closed loop. The system’s consistent parameter structure and operation reduces training needs and simplifies set-up and operation across applications, the company says. The system provides up to 90 percent energy efficient operation, reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by up to 25 percent when compared with conventional systems.
