Key Technology, Walla Walla, Wash., introduced its new Sanitary Belt Conveyor for transporting bulk foods on processing and packaging distribution lines.
Featuring a positive drive urethane (PDU) belt, stainless-steel frame and components, open construction and other sanitary features, this new belt conveyor eases the sanitation routine to reduce labor, speed up changeover and increase uptime while improving equipment hygiene to maximize food safety.
It comes in “dog leg,” flat and inclined configurations that can be mounted to the floor, on casters or suspended, and can be designed with a flat surface or a variety of shaped flights and/or flexible side walls to contain the product in pockets while elevating.
The USDA-approved belting is thermoformed, providing a homogenous and seamless belt, and the tool-less collapsible take-up system, which releases tension from the belt, along with the fastener-free snap-in-place carry-ways, enable the sanitation crew to simply lift the belt up to powerwash underneath.
It can accommodate virtually any required throughput from 2,000-60,000 pounds of product per hour, and is ideal for processed fruits and vegetables, fresh cut produce, meat, poultry, seafood and dairy products.
