Sanitary conveyors are a key factor for food safety risk management during the production process. From initial processing, through production and final packaging, conveyors carry product every step of the way. Addressing the risk of product contamination requires using conveyors whose designs prevent the harboring of bacteria and other contagions that can find their way into the product stream.
The KleanTrak conveyor from UniTrak is a cleated belt conveyor specifically engineered to overcome the challenges of sanitary conveying. These conveyors are designed to allow easy cleaning in food, pharmaceutical, and other washdown environments.
KleanTrak features a sanitary design that minimizes the opportunity for bacteria growth. They use a cleated FDA-approved belt in a patented tensionless drive system that provides no belt slippage or stretch. Frames are made from 304 stainless steel and a variety of finishes are available, including electropolishing.
The conveyors are equipped with a washdown duty drive motor and corrosion resistant bearings. Conveyors can elevate from 15° to 90°, and available options included a stationary or mobile/portable base.
