In the food production business, there is no such thing as “good enough.” Sanitation has to be done correctly. Every. Single. Time. That’s one of the reasons we’ve gotten a lot of requests lately for incorporating two of our conveyor features that make cleaning conveyor belts and around side rails a whole lot easier. And when a sanitation process takes less effort, the better the odds are it will be done properly.
We Take the Load Off
Instead of manually struggling with a heavy and clumsy conveyor belt to get it high enough to work under it, our mechanical belt lifters raise the belt uniformly to the perfect level over the carry way or slider belt. With the flip of a lever, a series of evenly spaced J-shaped arms are elevated into place. No tools required. The belt is safely and effortlessly held out of the way for fast and easy cleaning or inspection. The specially designed rolled edges on the arms protect the belt by reducing the pressure in any one spot. The uniform lifting from beneath avoids creasing the belt material, which prolongs its work life.
You’ll Flip Over Our Frame Sides
No, seriously. That’s how they work. Our flip out side rails flip over and down without any tools to allow easy access to the belt and surrounding areas. This makes cleaning the rails a snap. Since they stay attached during the process, the chance of them getting set down and lost or damaged is eliminated. With the stainless steel backing, UHMW can be added or not depending on the application.
Our frame sides are also safer to work with. We reduce flat surfaces by forming the sheet metal edges at 70°. Other companies use 90° formed frames that create areas that are hard to clean and expose sharp sheet metal edges.
Simple Sanitation Satisfaction
Clean food production is something no one in the industry should take for granted. Our mechanical belt lifters and flip out side rails are just a couple of examples how we work to ensure safe, swift, spotless sanitation for any operation.
