Conveyors were once seen as the necessary connections between key machinery on packaging production lines solely as the means to get things from one machine to the next. Over the past years as vendors have bolstered conveyors’ capabilities, controls and other features, packagers and other users have seen the value in installing conveyors that can contribute to line efficiencies and/or reduce space requirements while maintaining product and package quality.
Users of all types can review these product- and production-propelling systems at one of the largest displays of conveyors of the year: Pack Expo Las Vegas Sept. 28-30. We highlight four of the newest features and systems to be on display for those in the market for conveyors.
We start with the DynaClean Vertical Z Conveyer (shown above), a cost-efficient solution for food processing facilities that need to move food products to higher elevations that boasts more than double the capacity of standard incline conveyors. The patented conveyer system is claimed as easier to clean and sanitize than traditional bucket elevators, resulting in lower cost of ownership and reduced downtime. The Vertical Z system is customizable to desired heights and includes widths up to 24 inches and a variety of belt styles. Drive flight options include 75 degree and scoop flights. The conveyor is constructed of plastic and stainless steel materials that meet NSF, FDA, USDA and BISCC standards.
