Simplify Small Product Transfers Now with Dorner's New Sanitary 7600 Series Center Drive Conveyor
HARTLAND, Wis., (Aug. 11, 2006) - For sanitary conveyor applications that call for smoothly transferring small product, the 7600 Series Center Drive Conveyor is the perfect fit.
As implied by its name, the motor of the 7600 Series Center Drive Conveyor can be mounted at any location between the two spindles to best accommodate the customer's particular application. This allows for additional clearance on the ends of the conveyor, making the 7600 Series Center Drive Conveyor ideal for applications involving small product transfers. By relocating the motor to a location in the middle, the conveyor ends can be as large as 3 ½" diameter to accommodate larger loads, or as small as 1/2" for small product transfers.
The 7600 Series Center Drive Conveyor is the newest member of Dorner's AquaPruf family of sanitary conveyors. The 7600 Series represents the latest engineering designs to provide the highest level of sanitation on the market today and the fastest cleaning times for wash-down conveyors in the industry. The entire conveyor system can be disassembled for cleaning, without tools, in only 30 seconds. Using the 7600 Series means less equipment downtime for cleaning and a higher return-on-investment for customers in industries such as bakery/snack foods, confectionary, ready-to-eat foods, raw meat, raw poultry, raw seafood, pharmaceutical and clean rooms.
Features of the 7600 Series Center Drive Conveyor include:
o Tool-less tip up pulley allows conveyor to be lifted easily for quick access to inside the conveyor for cleaning.
o Nosebar transfer available in ½", 1" and 1 7/8" diameter for small product transfers.
o Perforated covers allow for small particles to fall through rather than accumulate on the center drive motor.
o Belt lifters for easy cleaning on wide or long conveyors.
o UHMW belt scraper blade to remove loose product build-up.
o Frame cutouts for easy access for internal frame washing.
o TIG welded 304 stainless steel frame designed with no horizontal surfaces for optimum cleaning.
o V-Guided belt for positive tracking.
o 400 Series stainless steel bearings filled with H1 FDA lubricant and mounted in cast stainless steel housings for maximum performance in washdown environments.

o Lengths between 4 and 40 feet.
o Widths up to 5 feet.
o Speeds up to 328 feet per minute.
