Key Technology vibratory conveyors have been enhanced with new features to reduce maintenance and maximize sanitation. Mounted to Key StrongArm spring arms to dissipate static between the conveyor bed and frame, the new patented grounding arm presents no horizontal surfaces where liquid, product, or particulates can pool. In addition, each Key conveyor’s identification, specifications, and stroke indicator are now laser-etched or stamped on to stainless steel, and the colorful ISO safety pictogram labels use epoxy-based baked finish over stainless steel. These new labels consume less surface area and are attached to the conveyors with stand-offs to reduce laminations, which ease cleaning and improve sanitation. Key has also redesigned its oil-free drives. A smaller footprint and a more open mount, which reduce the lamination area, make these maintenance-free drives more sanitary. And the new Vector-Lock Gen 2 features a larger hook, a bigger radius, and additional over-center latching for more positive engagement. This new clamp enables quick release and quick closing while maximizing load-carrying capabilities to secure screens and covers on even the heaviest conveyor systems that handle today’s highest capacities.
