Food Conveyor Systems
Food conveyors are manufactured to suit various specifications and enable products to move along complex routes. They are carefully constructed from stainless steel to achieve the hygienic standards required by the food manufacturing industry.
Our food conveyor systems offer flexible installation. They can be designed to fit into your existing conveyor network or supplied and installed as a complete system.
Other benefits of food conveyors include the fact that they can travel at variable speeds, which are easily controlled. They also come with adjustable guide rails making it easier to transport products from one place to the next.
Stainless Steel Food Conveyors
Stainless steel food conveyors are used extensively across all sectors of the food industry, including meat and poultry, salads, ready meals and bakery. They provide extra strength without adding weight and offer excellent resistance to corrosion – meaning they won’t need to be replaced or repaired as often – and therefore saving you money.
All our food conveyors sit on a stainless steel conveyor beam which requires low maintenance. As well as this, our food conveyors offer quick belt access – allowing you to thoroughly clean it and eliminate the risk of cross-contamination.
No matter which stainless steel food conveyor you choose from SSME, we can tailor it to suit your industry requirements. Our food-grade modular belt food conveyors are supplied with a fully approved PU belt and V-groove tracking – preventing products from falling off at the sides or end whilst making the journey from processing to packaging.
Here at SSME, we have more than 25 years’ experience in the industry and pride ourselves on competitive prices and excellent customer service. If you’d like to know more about our stainless steel conveyors, don’t hesitate to call 0121 661 6346 or email email@example.com.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a food conveyor?
As its name implies, a food conveyor is a system that’s used to convey food from production right through to packaging and distribution.
Food conveyor belts are suitable for handling both raw and cooked foods, including meats, dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables, sweets and other mass-produced items.
All of our food conveyor systems here at SSME are manufactured from stainless steel. Unlike other metals, stainless steel has a smooth, non-porous exterior which makes it incredibly easy to clean and sterilise. It’s also resistant to corrosion, so it won’t rust when exposed to moisture.
To reduce the risk of contamination, food conveyors must be washed regularly. And that includes the PU belt!
What are the benefits of using a conveyor system in the food industry?
A food conveyor offers a plethora of benefits for the food industry.
For instance, it speeds up the transportation of goods across long distances. This not only reduces the need for manual labour but also minimises manual handling, ensuring food and beverages are of the highest quality and safe for consumers to eat or drink.
On top of this, these automated systems can increase productivity – allowing your business to produce top-quality goods at a faster rate.
Food conveyor belts allow for a more hygienic environment by preventing dirt from getting into the production areas.
What’s more, fewer workers are required and the demand for heavy lifting and repeating specific movements is significantly reduced. Therefore, the risk of accidents and injuries is much less.
So, aside from enhancing the safety of your products and helping your business to maintain a positive reputation, a food conveyor can benefit your employees too.
