22 September 2017

The WLX wide belt stainless steel conveyor, available from Flex Link, is now also available in 152 and 203 mm sizes. In addition to the new conveyor widths, a 180° plain bend with small radius has been introduced. 

This conveyor solution is particularly suited to food industry applications, where hygiene is a high priority. The conveyor has a minimal number of seams and open hinges that are easy to clean.

The design adheres to the EHEDG guidelines for hygienic design, hs verified by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Additionally, SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden has verified the conveyor’s ease and consistency in cleaning.

The range has been designed to facilitate easy, effective cleaning procedures and to ensure a consistent result. On the process side, the design support hygienic operations and hollow bodies and crevices, where pathogens and contaminants tend to get trapped, are eliminated. It addresses the higher hygienic requirements associated with consumer safety and product shelf life.

Operator safety is also given priority by eliminating pinch points and sharp edges. At the same time, for ease of cleaning, integrated devices are included to facilitate easy lifting of the chain, eliminating heavy lifting and giving good accessibility for cleaning.
