Easy-clean food conveyor features removable belt

Related tags: Conveyor belt, Belt

To enhance hygiene during manufacture and protect against cross-contamination, Gough Engineering has developed an easy-clean conveyor with a removable belt – as recommended by the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) – that allows the belt to be quickly disassembled and cleaned.

The belt conveyor's tubular design means that the conveying surface does not need to be supported by a solid plate.

This would increase horizontal ledges and crevices, creating more hidden areas, which are difficult to clean, increasing the possibility for bacteria to grow, says Gough.

Employees should have full access to the conveyor equipment's components to perform a thorough clean.

However, in many types of conveyors they normally use a closed structure to protect workers from the dangerous inner motions of the conveyor.

This can be resolved at the design stage by including removable covers to allow access to the internal parts, says Gough.
