As new guidelines are set forth, their team implements unique strategies to sustain, meet and overcome those requests. Their innate capability of designing and engineering systems on an individual product line basis puts Multi-Conveyor in a league nearly of their own. Ultimately, the industry must trend towards conveyors that are cleaner, safer, faster, more reliable and technologically advanced to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries.

Increased throughput, along with elimination of product waste and downtime, are essential in providing a quality conveying system to our customers. New product carrying belts or chains, and materials for wear parts, must add to the performance criteria of a project, while meeting guidelines for materials acceptable in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries.

Conveyor construction should be resistant to chemicals used in cleaning and sanitation. Often times all of those characteristics are required of each conveyor. Although all of the updates are far too many to mention  in the video, critical points may include:

  • Removable NTR (no tool required) components for cleaning
  • Gasketed areas to keep contaminants from getting behind wear strips
  • Critical radius welds and radius bushings
  • Tooless removable CIP’s (clean in place)
  • USDA approved urethane belts for tight transfers
  • Plastic washers behind all fasteners
