 “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.
