Reducing the waste
The importance of a clean, hygienic production environment increases considerably when handling unpacked food in wet and even dry environments. Failure to meet these requirements can result in extreme measures such as a product recall or even worse; consumer illness. Food processors rely on high hygienic standards in their processes to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in products. The consumer demands for longer shelf life and more natural products increase the potential for microbial contamination in food products, if the high hygienic standards are not maintained.
A simplified, hygienic conveyor design increases the ease-of cleaning and reduces the downtime and overall costs. FlexLink’s crevice- and cavity free design eliminates most of the areas that are difficult to clean. Combined with small contact surfaces between component parts, no open threads, no sharp corners and no flat horizontal surfaces, a repeatable and consistent cleaning result is ensured. Our modular wide belt conveyor platform WLX adheres to EHEDG and 3A design guidelines.
FlexLink FoodTech solutions are optimize to meet the needs of your food production. This decreases the food waste as well as the amount of detergents and water needed in the hygienic process.
