Safely moving product between low and high-care areas

13 February 2017

Food Processing reports on a conveyor solution which solves the problem of transferring product between low care and high care areas. 

With a requirement for both hygienic production and flexibility, most food manufacturers will require a bespoke product transportation solution to meet their specific requirements and to fit around any existing production setup. Each conveyor project undertaken by SYSPAL is designed and customised to meet the customers specific process requirements, ensuring that throughput and hygiene standards are met. For design validation, SYSPAL engineers use CAD software which allows customers to visualise the process on screen, negating any margin of error before production begins.
   
The company employs clinical grade 304 and 316 stainless steel in production of its systems to ensure that they are fit for purpose and meet today’s stringent hygiene standards. 

The transfer of product from low care to high care has particular health and safety implications. The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety requires there to be a physical segregation between these areas. To pass equipment, utensils or materials through a high risk area there needs to be a designated port with sanitising controls in place. With this in mind SYSPAL has developed sanitising conveyors which meet the BRC standards for food safety. The conveyors efficiently pass product from low care to high care with maximum sanitising coverage. The conveyor unit features a 596mm wide open grid polymer blue conveyor belt which is covered by a removable stainless steel hood that contains the sanitising spray bar activated by an infeed sensor. The spray bar incorporates a 360° loop spray nozzle which ensures maximum coverage so that any equipment or product that passes through the conveyor is sufficiently sanitised. Once the equipment or product has passed through the sanitising conveyor it is safe to be used in high care areas.

The sanitising conveyor range is made up of three models. A shorter sanitising conveyor model, an extended sanitising conveyor model and a twin spray bar version. All are designed with a 50 micron filter, a Dosatron chemical unit with adjustable dose rates of 0.2% - 2.0%, a variable timed delay function on outfeed sensor, a side mounted IP67-rated control panel and a removable sanitising solution tank with recirculation mesh filter, drain valve and overflow facility. 

Optional features can be built into the design. Different belt types, for example, can be specified for the conveyor to meet the needs of different high care environments. These belts can be chosen from a standard straight through belt, a looped belt or a high care/low care separated belt.
