Creative Solutions to Complex Problems
A well known sauce processor installed a new automated bag filling line and asked Keenline to provide a system to transport assorted sizes of sealed plastic bags, containing specialty sauces from the discharge of their new automated bag filler to the in-feed of their new cooler.
They required a sanitary design as the system was to be completely sanitized daily.
The system had to be portable so it could be removed from the production area for cleaning and sanitizing.
The customer’s specification required the conveyor to be constructed of 11 gauge stainless steel in an all welded, no bolt, open top sanitary design using “Intralox” 16″ wide series 900 white polypropylene belting with diamond friction inserts and acetal rods.
Keenline provided the system with stainless steel square and round tube support structures and with:
- Stainless steel swivel locking casters
- 1/2″ long welded in place bearing stand offs
- White polymer-housed bearings with bearing caps
- Center drive assembly
- Stainless steel wash–down motor
- Stainless steel wash-down reducer
- Easily removable UHMW-PE guide rails
- Easily removable UHMW-PE wear-strips
- Easily removable sanitary return wheels
- Frame clean out holes
The system supplied, as shown in the photos, met the customer’s specification and performed to that system specification in Keenline’s plant.
The photos included in this newsletter show the system at Keenline after the Acceptance Tests. Keenline is a leader in Super Sanitary conveyor systems for the food industry.
