The dairy industry is one of the largest food sectors delivering popular products such as milk, butter and cheese. These products have to be processed in a highly sanitised and hygienic way and Asmech Systems Ltd. provides many solutions to facilitate in achieving this. Conveyors belts are an important part of dairy processing and in this blog we look at one of the more popular choices, the modular conveyor belt.
Made from stainless steel, modular conveyors are designed with hygiene in mind and are durable and hard-wearing. They are ideal for transferring food products, ensuring optimum temperatures of perishable goods. They are multi-functional allowing not only to transport products but they can be labelled and packaged as well, perfect for milk cartons.
Stainless steel food conveyors are able to withstand high, and low, temperatures and are resistant to corrosion. They are easy to clean and disinfect making them perfect for food production, particularly raw food products.
Modular conveyors are extremely durable and versatile. Individual slats can be easily replaced, allowing for straightforward and easy maintenance. This reduces expenditure as the whole system does not need to be replaced when issues arise. Conveyor belts operate quickly and efficiently reducing human error and labour costs.
Modular conveyors can send product boxes down a production line as employees process them and then packaged products can be moved direct into the transportation vehicle, drastically reducing the time it would take for employees to physically walk from one side of the warehouse to another.
A significant advantage of modular conveyor belts is that they feature low tension throughout the entire system. They are lighter, and with less weight it allows for smaller motors, which result in lower energy bills.
Asmech Systems Ltd. modular conveyors are typically made from Stainless Steel Grade 304 and are available in standard lengths up to 2980mm long with longer lengths being achieved by using splice joints.
