Dorner’s Redesigned AquaPruf Conveyor Brings Users the Latest in Food Safety Features

Dorner is never one to rest on its laurels, and that philosophy of constant improvement is shown in its newly redesigned AquaPruf Conveyor, the latest iteration of its popular selling AquaPruf sanitary conveyor platform. Dorner is an industry leader in the design, application, manufacturing and integration of precision industrial and sanitary conveyor systems.

The redesigned AquaPruf hygienically engineered stainless steel conveyor incorporates several upgraded design features to give users a platform that meets the latest sanitary standards and requirements of the food industry today.

AquaPruf conveyors replace a conventional gearmotor with a new iDrive2 motorized roller option. The iDrive2 is a gearless, oil-free technology roller that provides a food-safe compact footprint for the conveyor. AquaPruf conveyors with conventional stainless steel gearmotors are located outside the food zone for added food safety.

Knowing more applications today move food in and around existing equipment, AquaPruf curve conveyors provide a tight turning radius with improved chain strength allowing three curves to be powered by only one gearmotor.

A new patent-pending spiral-cam threadless belt tensioning and tracking system enhances conveyor control and streamlines operation while minimizing downtime. Additionally, a new patent-pending tail-height adjustment mechanism provides easy access to modify operation and aid in product transfers.

Redesigned AquaPruf conveyors improve upon the already fast cleaning times of the AquaPruf platform with the new quick-removal side mount gearmotor package, which allows the side mounted gearmotor to be removed in less than a minute for cleaning inside the conveyor. All AquaPruf conveyors feature tool-less disassembly, with complete disassembly in less than three minutes for cleaning.

Features and benefits of the newly redesigned AquaPruf conveyor include:

  • Optional frame cut-outs and belt lifters for continuous access inside the conveyor;
  • Solid UHMW wear strips can be removed quickly without tools for cleaning;
  • Tip-up tails for quick release of belt tension;
  • Continuous TIG-welded 304 stainless steel frame eliminates fasteners in food zone; and
  • Patented sprocket alignment key.

Performance specifications include:

  • Widths between 152 millimeters to 1,524 millimeters (6 inch to 60 inches);
  • Lengths between 914 millimeters to 25,375 millimeters (36 inches to 999 inches);
  • Load capacity up to 98 kilograms per square meter (20 lbs. per square inch);
  • Speeds up to 100 meters per minute (328 feet per minute);
  • Modular belt options:
    • Flat modular belt;
    • Friction top;
    • Cleated;
    • Curve;
  • V-guided and positive drive belt options:
    • Flat belt;
    • Cleated;
    • Sidewall Cleated; and
    • Straights, curves, LPZ (Z-frame), nose-over and horizontal to inclines.

Two different series comprise the AquaPruf sanitary platform: AquaPruf and AquaPruf Ultimate, which the later provides the highest level of sanitation. AquaPruf Ultimate is pending 3A certified conveyors and is engineered for USDA red meat, poultry and dairy applications.
