Conveyor range gains 3-A qualification

13 February 2017

FlexLink continuously reviews its conveyor range to ensure that the latest designs adhere to the most up to date guidelines laid down by EHEDG and 3-A Sanitary Standards. The company’s development team recently went through the process of 3-A qualification, with part of the WLX conveyor range being qualified to 3-A standard 75-01 which covers the handling of dry food products, bread, cakes, pies and frozen food produce. 

 “For increased brand protection and the assurance that their end products are meeting the hygienic requirements demanded by consumers, food manufacturers are increasingly looking for better, more hygienic solutions,” said Danny Parsons, global product manager for FMCG at FlexLink. 

According to Parsons safety and hygiene within production are not mutually exclusive of one another and it is important to balance these elements when designing a conveyor to ensure it is fit for use in the food industry. The WLX range has a quick cleaning procedure, simplified by integrated lift arms which eliminate the need for heavy lifting of the chain and allows the operator free access for cleaning and ensuring a more thorough and consistent cleaning process.

FlexLink has recently introduced two new belt widths to its WLX range to give greater flexibility to the variety products that the conveyor can handle. The addition of a new 180° plain bend with small radius for some widths also allows for the conveyor to be installed within a small footprint.
