We are currently developing a range of hygienic belt conveyors, specifically designed for the food and pharmaceutical industry. The manufacturing and construction methods significantly reduce the maintenance and cleaning required during normal operation.
Metal work -316 stainless steel, with a surface finish better than 0.3 µm.
Plastic items - injection moulded – anti-bacterial grade nylon
Conveyor belt - anti-bacterial polymer construction
Roller units - Stainless steel, sealed to IP67
Cylinders - injection moulded – anti-bacterial grade nylon
• No welds
• No nuts and bolts
• No metal to metal contact
• Quick release belt
• Fully disassembled in minutes without tools
• 316 stainless steel
• Self tracking
• Sealed edge PU belt
• Pneumatic belt tension
The conveyor is currently in a high risk chicken production plant and has undergone on site mechanical and operational trials and extensive bacterial testing of critical control points for the last six months.
- ENVIRONMENTAL SWABBING - PR07A
- LISTERIA SWABBING - PR07B
- MACHINE SWABBING - PR07C
- A.T.P. SWABBING - PR07D
All bacterial tests have all been successful. A conveyor clean down is performed every four hours and the time taken has reduced from 45 minutes (comparison conveyor) to 25 minutes with significant cost savings.
