Mepaco, the food processing equipment segment of Apache Stainless Equipment Corporation, has developed a new Sanitary Conveyor design using modular components. This new standard conveyor offering will provide Mepaco’s processing customers with greater flexibility in line layouts, more efficient engineering turnaround and better price points compared to custom designed solutions.
Modular pre-engineered components were designed to simplify the sanitation process by allowing for easy access to all inner areas of the frame. Sanitation effectiveness and efficiency were top priorities when developing the design.
Mepaco will be demonstrating sanitation features on the conveyor at food processing trade shows including Process Expo. The standard features include:
- 10 ga. Side frames with clean-out holes
- Shaft-mounted wash-down gear motor with/torque arm
- Homogeneous belting
- Removeable wearstrips
- Belt scraper
- Pickle passivated finish
- Angle and channel floor supports
- Integrated guide rails
The Process Expo, held bi-annually in Chicago, Illinois, is organized by the FPSA (Food Processing Suppliers Assn.) and represents the bakery, beverage, dairy, prepared foods and meat processing industries.
The Mepaco line of products include: grind/blend systems, cookers, mixer/blenders, lifts, dumpers and material handling systems.
