Next generation stainless steel conveyors
FlexLink's new stainless steel conveyors are available in three widths (85, 180 and 300mm) which are suited for handling products in production and packaging lines within the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and healthcare industry segments. The capacity requirements for stainless conveyors are high - the 85 mm wide version has an upper speed level of 120m/min and the wider versions can run up to 80m/min. FlexLink has designed a robust stainless steel conveyor with a low noise, considerably lower than industry standards.
The new stainless conveyor design is fully modular, from the individual component up to the complete conveyor. This enables easy and accurate assembly and easy modification of the conveyor configuration when there is a need to change the line layout. The modular design is also a driver for a high quality level. The new generation is available in three versions: wash down, which is the standard and easy to clean; wipe-off, the version with covered sides and no slots; and covered return chain, which is suited for applications when the requirements of cleanliness are extra high. New robust conveyor supports and guide rails systems are launched together with the conveyor platform. Standard drive units are of IP65 class with food-grade oil.
Efforts have been made to make the stainless conveyors easy to clean - both the exterior as well as the interior are designed so that pockets for dirt or remaining water after cleaning are minimised. Cast stainless steel spacers not only have good cleaning and drainage properties, they also make the design robust. FlexLink product manager Tommy Karlsson comments: "This is a major contribution in making efficient production lines in filling and packaging lines for consumer goods. We have changed the industry metrics on how to build high quality conveyors that are easy to clean and with a modular design."
