  • Food grade systems are always designed and built with sanitary and hygienic materials in mind, regardless of the application. Each project has its own set of requirements and needs, which we will discuss with you in detail. Understanding your product, its application, and any applicable regulations is the first step in the process. For example, we will consider the type of conveyor you require, such as whether a roller or belt style would be the most effective. Following that, we examine the areas of the conveyors where the food or organic materials come into contact with the surfaces of the machines.

    The requirements for sanitation and usage are the starting point. To ensure that each system complies with FDA regulations, specialized engineering is required. Your conveyor or food processing equipment will be subjected to a material specification checklist before being used.

    Depending on whether the food is in constant contact with a surface or not, different materials can be used in some cases to protect the food. Food moving along a belt conveyor, for example, is always in contact with the belt as it moves. As a result, the material used for the food conveyor belt must always meet or exceed the requirements for contact with the food. The requirements for frame materials and guarding materials can be quite different.

    Belt Overhead Monorail Conveyor are a type of conveyor. Conveyor belts made specifically for the food industry are the most common type of conveyor used in the industry. They are simple to clean due to the fact that their construction provides a smooth, continuous surface. As a result, food conveyor belts are an excellent choice for food handling.

    Whenever possible, conveyors are created so that no lubricant comes into direct contact with the product being transported. Motors and bearings, on the other hand, require lubricants or they will fail. We engineer the mechanical and electrical components of Ultimation's industrial food-grade conveyor belts to be protected from damage. Lubricants are approved by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for use in the appropriate environment. The ISO Standard 21469 is a voluntary standard that also provides additional guidance on the selection of lubricants and lubricant additives. For more information on the lubricant requirements, please see the following links:

    If the conveyor frames do not come into contact with any food materials, powder coated carbon steel finishes are the most cost-effective option available. Surfaces that are galvanized or zinc plated are permitted in a few other situations. Stainless steel grades are the most widely used because they provide the highest levels of protection. This includes the majority of the washdown standard specifications. stainless steel conveyor belts are constructed of stainless steel frames and food grade materials for the conveyor belts themselves

    This type of food belt conveyor system is used throughout the entire processing and packaging process. The FDA requires that the belt material used in food-based applications meet certain specifications. It also needs to be sturdy, long-lasting, and made of materials that are appropriate for the intended use. A critical aspect of food-safe materials is that they should always be easy to clean after they have been exposed to food. Customers frequently refer to these products as a food conveyor belt when discussing them.
