A customer came to us needing a conveying solution for transporting bagged dry ice. Because of the type of product being transported, special materials were needed. Our solution was a stainless-steel plastic belt conveyor constructed for a washdown environment.
Stainless Steel Frame
The frame was made from stainless steel so that it could withstand a washdown environment without rusting or deteriorating over time.
The bearings that were used were Dodge EZ-Kleen bearings, with a polymer housing and stainless-steel insert.
The motor was a washdown rated motor with a hollow bore shaft mounted reducer.
The supports were made of stainless steel, using stainless leveling pads.
A white plastic flat top acetal belt was driven by plastic sprockets on a stainless-steel shaft.
The idle end of the conveyor used a UHMW nose roller for a tight transfer of small product.
