L.A.C. Conveyor systems, on of the UK's leading suppliers of conveyors to the Food Processing Industry, have launched a new standard range of Hygienic Belt Elevators.  Aimed specifically at the food processing industry, the new range meets the high care requirements of this demanding sector, whilst standardisation of the units has lead to costs savings without impacting on performance or reliability.

The 'High Care' conveyor range features an open skeletal structure to allow access for cleaning whilst not compromising on safety for operators.  All welds are continuous, dressed and polished to prevent possible bacterial harbours.  A variety of belts with differing pitches of flight and width are available dependant upon the throughput and type of product to be conveyed.

All are FDA approved and have ben chosen specifically for their ease of cleaning and durability wihtin a harsh environment.

Motors and bearings are shielded to prevent ingress of liquids whilst being high pressure hose cleaned.  Clean in place systems can be incorporated into the body of the conveyor to continually clean the belt whilst in operation, drip trays and reservioirs prevent product from escaping the conveyor envelop.

Managing Director of LAC Food Industry Conveyors Mr Roger Mackness believes standardising this range of conveyors has lead to substantial unit cost savings and high improved deliveries, thus allowing chief engineers to procure this very high specification of conveyor and not have to compromise in these tough economic times.
