Manufacturer of pre-engineered standard and specially designed conveyor solutions, Multi-Conveyor revealed its latest innovation: a food-grade transport conveyor system. The new system consists of two levels of sanitary compliance, made of stainless steel initial conveyors that are constructed for maximum 3A Dairy compliance. It is designed with both high levels of sanitary washdown and subsequent lower sanitation levels, per the customer’s request, the company notes. The design fills bags, which travel through a sectional wall and into a reduced sanitation area. Using guideless conveyance to transport the bags, only the contact with the belt delivers the bags to their next destination. To assist in the combining of two timed release lanes, the design features a 90-degree bag transfer and backstop area, which also assists in changing bag orientation. Multi-Conveyor notes that the backstop “helps guide the flexible package wide-edge leading from the transfer onto the transport sections” and 90-degree curves to the case packer. A table top conveyor feeds another case packer and conforms to the floor plan line layout required by the customer.
