Precision Food Innovations’ (PFI) new horizontal motion conveyor, the PURmotion, is designed with Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) guidelines in mind.

The horizontal conveyor features an open design, solid structural framing, and no hollow tubing, so there is virtually no place for bacteria to hide. Every part of the equipment has easy accessibility for sanitation cleaning.

“The industry wants higher sanitary design with open access with cleaning,” said Greg Stravers, PFI senior vice president.

PURmotion’s components are IP69K rated, which means PFI’s new horizontal motion conveyor is able to withstand the close-range, high pressure, high temperature spray downs necessary to completely sanitize equipment, as well as completely preventing dust ingress.

“Customers in the food industry frequently purchase several types of conveyors depending on what product they want to convey,” states Stravers.

“While there are many types of conveyors, four main types are common in the food industry depending on their application: belt, vibratory, bucket elevator and horizontal motion. We created PURmotion to round out our product offerings for each of the four major types.”

PURmotion offers a highly sanitary product that is easy to clean and efficient in operation, with immediate reversing motion to wash down without removal of side panels.
