When transporting loose food products, troughed conveyors are often the best solution. Although they keep food products from falling off the edge or becoming damaged, the traditional solid slider bed design of these conveyors can often be more difficult to clean. Recognizing this inherent problem, the Eaglestone team developed a sanitary, easy-to-clean design to avoid this all-too-common problem.
While the main structure of the conveyor is a stainless steel tube rotated 45 degrees for cleanliness, the carry ways can be designed with either stainless steel rods or extruded UHMW “I” beams, depending on the application. This open design prevents the buildup of food particles, while allowing ease-of-cleaning beneath the belt. Plus, a UHMW scraper at the discharge end continuously cleans debris from the belt.
Typically used for conveying a wide range of loose food products, this trough conveyor was initially designed specifically for dough handling in the baking industry. Utilizing a sprocket driven solid urethane belt, this conveyor offers excellent product release, virtually no belt tracking issues and superb sanitation features.
As with all of our conveyors, Eaglestone’s Troughed Rod Bed Conveyor is completely customizable to fit your needs. If you’re interested in learning more about our latest trough design, contact us for more information.
