The use of conveyors in industries such as pharmaceuticals and food processing can raise hygiene concerns. At Wire Belt we understand the importance of this issue so we have developed a new range of hygienic conveyors which we believe set a new standard. 

With our new hygienic conveyors, it will be easier for your business to maintain exceptional standards of hygiene. 

How are our Enhanced Hygiene Models Different? 

Our hygienic conveyors have been designed with cleaning in mind. We know that being able to clean conveyors quickly and thoroughly is fundamental in many industries. Therefore our new hygienic conveyors have a range of features that distinguish them from other conveyors, including an open wash-through construction and open leg frames. 

The surfaces are self draining for convenience, and also the conveyors have been designed to eliminate crevices and ‘bug traps’. Components such as footpads, which are usually plastic, are now made of stainless steel. In addition to this, the standard control panel features a sloped top for drainage, IP66 ingress protection and fully stainless steel construction. 

Similarly to our other conveyors, Wire Belt’s Enhanced Hygiene models use standard components to ensure reduced lead times, simpler servicing, and a ready supply of spare parts. 

How can the New Models Reduce Cleaning Time? 

At Wire Belt we know how important it is to have clean conveyors, especially in the food industry. The features of our new Enhanced Hygiene models will allow you to save time on maintaining a clean work environment and preventing contamination.

Unlike other conveyors, it will not be necessary to dismantle the conveyors to access certain areas. We know that this is time consuming and so our hygienic conveyors facilitate wash-through and clean in place. 

To eliminate the risk of water accumulation, we have designed the conveyor surfaces to be self-draining. In addition to this, we have implemented a simplified wash-through construction to make removal of contaminants faster. 

What Standards do they Comply With? 

Our new Enhanced Hygiene conveyors fully comply with regulations and also with the recommendations and standards set by the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other bodies. 

The Benefits to Food Manufacturers 

Our new hygienic conveyors not only help you keep a clean workplace, but also will reduce costs. In any facility cleaning can be a significant expense, particularly in an industry where hygiene is paramount. With our wash-through conveyors, cleaning becomes quick and efficient, reducing costs. 

Furthermore an easy to clean conveyor will greatly reduce the risk of serious issues like product contamination. This will in turn reduce the risk of a product recall, a nightmare situation for any food manufacturer due to bad publicity and the costs of recovering the products. With our hygienic conveyors, you will be able to efficiently keep your facility clean.
