18/09/2017 Upgraded vibratory conveyors

Key Technology, Walla Walla, WA, has introduced new features to enhance performance of its vibratory conveyors – Iso-Flo®, Impulse®, Horizon™ and Marathon – for food processing and packaging lines. Together with established features that promote food safety and equipment durability, the innovative new grounding arm, label stand-offs, sanitary drives and Vector-Lock™ Gen 2 facilitate operation, reduce maintenance and maximise cleanliness. 
 
Key’s new patented grounding arm is fabricated as a single stainless steel unit. Unlike braided wire rope with crevasses, which can harbour bacteria and a crimped ferrule that can fail, the single structure, smooth texture and open design of the new grounding arm enhance sanitation and extend service life. Mounted to Key’s StrongArm™ spring arms to dissipate static between the conveyor bed and frame, this grounding arm presents no horizontal surfaces where liquid, product or particulates can accumulate. It comes standard on new conveyors and can be retrofitted to existing systems in the field. 
 
Label stand-offs are superior to traditional riveted plaques, which can trap bacteria, and adhesive stickers, which can peel off after repeated exposure to washdowns. Each conveyor’s identification, specifications and stroke indicator are laser-etched or stamped on to stainless steel and the ISO safety pictogram labels utilise epoxy based baked finish over stainless steel. 
 
The new Vector-Lock Gen 2, used to secure removable screens and covers on Key’s vibratory conveyors, simplifies operation and achieves better clamping. www.key.net
