Nercon is showcasing a new sanitary conveyor design at Pack Expo – Chicago, at booth N4036. Pack Expo, one of the largest process and packaging shows in the world, is being held at McCormick Place, Chicago, US, 28-31 October 2012.
The stainless-steel sanitary level III design is an all welded, bead blasted, sealed tube conveyor design. This conveyor construction level may be used to convey starched food or raw food product and is engineered for extreme caustic wash down procedures.
The belting features an endless solid polyurethane composition, with low tension. The use of a sprocket and gear drive without hinge points provides optimal sanitation levels in handling raw foods as well as reduced maintenance.
Featuring CIP (clean in place) and COP (clean-out-of-place) options, the sanitary level III design is evidence of the trend for food manufacturers to increase cleaning efficiencies. The design provides the highest degree of sanitation compliance, low-maintenance and reduced food risk.
Nercon, based out of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, is a leading manufacturer of conveyor equipment for food manufacturers.
