Food-grade conveyors stand up to processing projects

Dynamic Conveyor has released a new line of DynaClean conveyors, suitable for food processing operations.

Manufactured using high density polyethylene (HDPE), UHMW and a minimal amount 304 stainless-steel, the conveyor systems in the DynaClean line are suitable for food processing and packaging applications.

HPDE (a plastic material approved by various US agencies) is used to construct the sidewalls; it is corrosion resistant, non-toxic, non-absorbent, temperature resistant and less costly than stainless steel.

Mainenance made simple

According to the company, the conveyor design enables the units to be cleaned and sanitized quickly and easily. Maintenance staff reportedly can remove components in minutes, without using tools, to get at the inner workings.

Scott Thibault, president of processor J&M Foods in Little Rock, AR, says his staff finds the conveyors to be user friendly.

“The DynaClean is a very open design with no place for anything to hide and is much easier to clean,” he said. “We can do that with one person much faster than how we used to do that. It is easy to break down, lift off the retaining walls, lift out the rollers, clean underneath it, pressure wash it or dry wipe it and put it back together. It takes half the time it did with the old system.”

Frequent changeovers

The conveyors are designed for operations requiring frequent changeovers. The systems permit angle changes and the length to grow or shorten reportedly without compromising system integrity. Plant personnel can opt for single, continuous conveyors to run straight, incline and/or decline with one motor. With the DynaClean Premium, lateral turns are an option.

Users can choose from either ThermoDrive solid belting or modular plastic link style belting, as well as an array of drive flights.

Belts are specified to meet the needs of wet, dry or sticky foods; two different types of washdown motors also are available, with specifications based on the customer’s desired cleaning level.
