Conveyors that are used in the food industry have to be designed and manufactured to specific standards. One of the major requirements within the food industry is that the food conveyor must be very easy to clean.
Easy to Clean Food Conveyors
Being “easy to clean” means that there must be easy access to all surfaces, whether they are in direct contact with the food product or not. A well designed food conveyor will offer easy cleaning access to all areas, and it will also require minimum maintenance.
PVC/PU Food Conveyors
The surface finish of a food conveyor is also very important, which is why PVC/PU belt conveyors (including modular belt conveyors) are often used on processing, assembly and packing lines in the food industry. A food conveyor with a rough surface would hold on to food deposits, and no matter how small these are, would encourage the growth of bacteria.
Mobility Engineering Designs Food Conveyors
Food processing can include all types of applications from raw and cooked meats, poultry and fish to packaged meals and confectionery, so custom built food conveyors are needed and the team at Mobility Engineering is highly experienced in producing food conveyors for these applications.
