Transforming the conveyor automation since 1966
December 1, 2020 // 1 minute read
In today’s fast-paced society having access to ready-made food is an important convenience. With an increase in demand there is an increased need for production. One way to maximize productivity is to have food moving along a conveyor with employees adding ingredients as the product passes their station. Using a conveyor assembly line for ready-to-eat food is a more streamlined process because each employee is only in charge of one ingredient instead of having to make the entire product.
PennAir partners with Dorner Conveyors to deliver kick@$$ conveying solutions for ready-to-eat foods. Dorner has experience with ready-to-eat foods such as sandwiches, meals, parfait cups, salads and more. They understand that these produces require conveyors that can be efficiently and effectively cleaned and sanitized over the lifetime of the equipment. Also, all parts of the equipment must be easily accessible for inspection, maintenance and cleaning without the need for tools.
Food safety is another important factor for ready-to-eat food conveyors, such as making sure that there are no of areas where water or food can collect.
Using an AquaPruf series conveyor from Dorner is a great way to move product along while maintaining sanitary requirements. The AquaPruf series is designed with food sanitation requirements in mind. These design features include:
The AquaGard line of conveyors is designed for a wide variety of applications in sanitary environments that require conveyor wipe-downs. Features include:
