Dorner's AquaPruf Family Increases Conveyor Sanitation with New Hygienic ThermoDrive Vertical Scoop Belting Option
HARTLAND, Wis., (Jan. 28, 2008) - It's truly the best of both worlds.
Dorner Manufacturing is now offering a new belting system for its AquaPruf family of sanitary conveyors to better accommodate customer demands, while further reducing conveyor downtime for cleaning at change over or during sanitation.
The new ThermoDrive Sprocket Driven Hygienic Vertical Scoop Belting now offered on Dorner's AquaPruf family of sanitary conveyors, uses 55 percent less water during cleaning in comparison to other competing belts. Using less water reduces customers' energy consumption for sanitation and speeds up cleaning time.
Aiding in sanitation is the belt's design - a homogenous thermoplastic composition with no pins, hinges or link joints to catch and foster bacteria growth. Engineered solely for food and other applications calling for a high degree of sanitation, the ThermoDrive Sprocket Driven Hygienic Vertical Scoop Belt greatly reduces in-process bacteria proliferation, while in-place cleaning is completed in just a fraction of the time required for competing belts not to mention the reduced drying time.
The AquaPruf family of sanitary conveyors are engineered for fast and effective sanitation in the most demanding environments, including ready-to-eat foods, raw protein (meat, poultry and fish), dairy and other environments with high-pressure sanitation requirements. Engineered to have the fastest cleaning times in the industry, AquaPruf conveyors can be disassembled for cleaning, without tools, in only 30 seconds. Using AquaPruf sanitary conveyors with enhanced controls and system capabilities means less equipment downtime for cleaning and a higher return-on-investment for customers.
