Rydell Industrial (Belting) has introduced its ThermoDrive sprocket-driven hygienic conveyor belting.
Pobco Plastics, a manufacturer of plastic and wood conveyor components, has launched its brand in Australia following the appointment of Smith & Searls Pty Ltd to represent them in Australia and New Zealand.
MECO offers custom shaft seals for slow-turning bulk process equipment. Because no standard seals will work properly in every application, MECO engineers specify the design and construction materials for each seal according to actual shaft diameter, speed, clearance, process chemistry, temperature, pressure variation, thermal shaft growth, etc.
Industrial Conveying has instigated a retrofit option to save on the expense of replacing an entire steel belt spiral conveyor system. This will suit many industries including food processing, assembly, manufacturing, automotive manufacture and general engineering.
Emptying hoppers can be a chore when the product doesn't want to come out. The usual method is hammering, or better, use a vibrator, properly sized and with the correct action.
Intralox LLC has released its new Series 1000 flat top belt, developed to meet needs of the beverage and packaging industry applications that require very tight transfers and high belt strength.
Using two electric vibrating motors has long been the usual method of getting a true vertical action in a vibrating table. This is a good system when the application doesn't change, but often the table may be used for many purposes. This then means that either a compromise is needed between the various applications or a variable speed motor is required.
Garvey's Infinity Series accumulators provide high-speed, low backpressure accumulation for production lines, which was previously difficult, due to product instability and/or susceptibility to damage.
Intralox's Clean Team claims to deliver conveyor sanitation technology that reduces cleaning time and water usage compared to manual cleaning. The Intralox SeamFree family of belts, which includes the Series 800, Series 850 and the Series 1650 SeamFree Minimum Hinge Flat Top belt, effectively channels water and debris away from the hinges and to the edge of the belt. The EZ clean in llace system with Angled EZ Clean Sprockets provides maximum cleaning efficiency in the belt underside, sprockets and shafts.
The Allergen Bureau has targeted the food industry with the launch of a website that aims to facilitate the improvement of food allergen management in Australian and New Zealand industry.
HP Blue polyurethane conveyor belts meet the stringent requirements for food safety and hygiene required by equipment manufacturers and end users within the food manufacturing industry.
While the more common drive for vibratory conveyors is by electric vibrating motors, their physical characteristics make them inherently unsuitable for very large strokes and long conveyor lengths, since they need to drive through the centre of gravity of the tray. To obtain a true linear action two motors are needed with consequent increase in weight and complexity.
ICA has released a spiral conveyor system made from food grade stainless steel specifically for applications in the food and beverage industries.
Vacuum technology company Piab has been developing USDA vacuum conveyors, and claims the PIAB C33 is the first vacuum conveyor to satisfy the requirements of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Faster, simpler lacer installation of wire hooks has been made possible with the Roller Lacer from Flexible Steel Lacing Company. The Clipper Roller Lacer Gold Class portable tool is designed for fast, easy, hook installation and reduces operator fatigue and minimises down time without sacrificing precision.
