Enhance Food Safety with Improved Sanitary Conveyors

Posted by Kevin Mauger | Oct 19, 2022 9:15:00 AM

When exploring your sanitary conveying options, consider how clean / sanitary the conveyor and equipment must be for your operation. At NCC Automated Systems, we offer basic washdown and truly sanitary, material handling solutions for everything from meat and poultry to bakery to confectionery products.

When it comes to food packaging, you’ll want a sanitary solution you can trust no matter what stage of the food processing or packaging operation in your facility.


Sanitation Methods Throughout the Manufacturing Process: Sanitary Conveyor vs. a Washdown System

Food plants require special sanitation methods dependent on the food and process type, along with the stage in the manufacturing or packaging process. When you need a truly sanitary solution, the standard industrial conveyors are unsuited for the wet, humid (and corrosive) conditions required to sanitize the equipment. 

It comes down to this: washdown applications are able to withstand frequent washdown without corroding or wearing prematurely, while sanitary applications are able to be fully cleaned and not have areas to harbor bacteria, and can withstand the same stringent conditions as a washdown application.  Whichever system is right for you, we offer custom builds to ensure you get the perfect setup for your operations.  Learn more in this blog post.
