CIP System for Defect Removal

Key Technology, Walla Walla, Wash., introduced CleanBelt, a new clean-in-place (CIP) system for ADR 5, an automatic defect removal system for potato strips. This Key Tech CleanBeltautomated CIP system reduces sanitation and maintenance labor, minimizes the cost of replacement parts and helps maintain the optimal performance of the ADR 5 system to accurately match product quality to specifications.

With a combination of passive and active cleaning systems, CleanBelt continuously removes starch from the ADR belt to prevent buildup. The consistency of this routine ensures a uniform inspection background for the ADR cameras over time, which eliminates the need to recalibrate ADR and helps maintain optimal inspection performance without degradation.

CleanBelt eliminates the need to manually remove starch from between belt lanes and reduces the need for the ADR belt to be manually cleaned. It extends the intervals between cutter wheel rebuilds and significantly reduces knife replacements, which saves labor and parts. The CleanBelt is expected to help processors save 125-200 labor hours per year.
