Our dedication to cleaning efficiency includes the design of the system's conveyor belts. The conveyors can be removed quickly without the need for tools and a unique design prevents mistakes during reassembly. Manufacturers wishing to increase efficiency can elect to keep a second conveyor belt available to quickly swap out during product changeover, further reducing downtime. Making conveyors easy-to-remove is important for cleaning and maintenance purposes. That is why rapid conveyor dismantling and reassembly is one of the features built-in to the design in accordance with hygienic principles. This helps to make cleaning as efficient and easy as possible.
