In response to industry demands for an enclosed, hygienic, certified solution for conveying all types of bulk food ingredients, Luxme International has launched a food-grade tubular chain conveyor, a USDA-accepted solution for transporting large quantities of dairy, meat, and poultry.

The SaniLux tubular chain conveyor adheres to the highest standards of food hygiene. The enclosed system is beneficial in keeping the product protected from atmospheric, airborne contaminants, and other bacterial elements. By maintaining a safe and sanitized processing system all the way to the packaging line, the risk of product recall is reduced.

Optional independent clean-in-place (CIP) technology is isolated from the upstream or downstream machinery and interlocked for operation. As well as ensuring the conveyor is sanitized to industry standards, the CIP technology avoids the dismantling and reassembly of equipment and is capable of cleaning the SaniLux system from dry to dry in 60 minutes. The chain assembly for the CIP washdown application is approved by the FDA.

The conveyor itself comprises a fixed drive and tension assembly that automatically tensions the chain continuously during the process and regulates it according to friction, product flow, and variation in atmospheric/product temperature. Capable of 300-, 500-, or 1,100-cu-ft/hr capacities, the system is suited for the automatic conveying of all types of dry or wet food, from milk powders to raw meat, at any stage of receiving, processing, and packaging.
