Endless stainless steel belt producer Sandvik Process Systems will be using this year's IFFA fair in Frankfurt (May 813) to highlight the benefits of its conveyor technology in preventing bacterial build-up during meat processing.
Sandvik stainless steel belts promise exceedingly low levels of bacteria growth due to the inherent properties of stainless steel. It is inert, non-toxic and resistant to corrosive materials like blood and fatty acids. The belts' flat, pre-welded, endless construction, also help prevent bacterial build-up.
There are no holes, textures or fibres in which bacteria can hide and grow and, secondly, the belts are claimed to be very easy to clean, whether by heat, pressure, brushes, detergents, chemicals or any combination of these.
"Solid stainless steel is the obvious material to use in an environment in which hygiene and sanitation is critical," says Krister Lundgren, Sandvik's global product manager for this segment.
