SPOTLIGHT ON ….
CONVEYORS AND SORTERS
Conveyor for sanitary applications: Dorner has redesigned its AquaGard 7350 V2 series conveyor to enhance
safety and performance.
The AquaGard 7350 V2 is built for sanitary applications within
the baking, snack food, pharmaceutical, pet food, packaging, and other
industries that require occasional wipe-down cleanings of the conveyor. The
new conveyor comes in straight belt and modular belt straight and curve
The modular belt conveyor system is designed to maximize available plant space by keeping
the footprint as compact as possible. Infeed and outfeed sections are a compact 18 inches.
The conveyor comes with an improved tail design for drive support. The addition of a tip-up tail on the modular belt (straight) gives greater access inside the conveyor for cleaning.
Powered and non-powered turntables: Industrial equipment manufacturer Lewco now offers a complete line of
conveyor turntables. Turntables provide a method of rotating
unit loads when material lines intersect or change directions.
Unlike chain-transfer devices, they maintain product orientation
through an intersection. They can also be used to reverse the
orientation of a product or allow a pass-through, depending on application requirements.
Lewco’s turntable line includes eight models, six non-powered and two powered. The
non-powered models include the LPT and NPT, which can be used for loading or unloading
pallets, tote pans, and boxes; the LPTG19 and LPTG25 heavy-duty turntables, which feature
gravity-roller tops and concave transition sections that can be used in a pass-through conveyor
line; and the NPTG19 and NPTG25 gravity-conveyor turntables, which provide a transition that
can be used in a pass-through conveyor line. With the latter four models, the transition section
can be reconfigured to make 90-degree turns at the intersection of two gravity-conveyor lines.
The company’s turntable lineup also includes two powered models, PP90 and PP360, which
Lewco says are ideal for heavy-duty applications requiring powered versus manual rotation.
Both models can be fitted with various styles of powered conveyor, such as multi-strand chain
or chain-driven live roller, to convey material on and off the turntable. (Lewco, lewcoinc.com)
Sanitary conveyors: Packaging machinery manufacturer Deitz Co. has introduced
modular food-grade conveyors designed to promote complete cleaning with no disassembly
required. The food-grade conveyors set a dust-resistant, acetal tabletop chain belt a full 1. 5
inches above the conveyor body to allow full access to the stainless-steel structure and to both
sides of the plastic belting, while the variable-speed motor is mounted safely underneath the
conveyor and away from the product. Ideal for food, beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical,
and other facilities, the unit allows for quick manual wipe-downs to minimize sanitation cycle
time, withstands automated washdowns, and supports overall line uptime with virtually zero
maintenance, the company says.
Designed for easy integration with filling and packaging machinery from any manufacturer,
the modular conveyors are available in variable lengths from six to 30 feet or more for easy
lengthening or shortening after installation, are height-adjustable, and include casters as
standard for easy movement. Dual rails included on both sides may be adjusted in opening,
height, and shape, while their industry-standard mounting hardware permits easy expansion
or addition of reject stations, spacing wheels, and powered transfers such as turntables and
bottomless conveyors. (Deitz Co. Inc., www.deitzco.com)
