Sanitary Conveyor Systems
Nercon supplies sanitary conveying equipment that is engineered and built to the food processor’s specific requirements needed to meet governmental regulations. Recognizing compliance can be different among plants in the same corporation as well as plant-specific cleaning procedures and processes, Nercon’s approach is to build sanitary conveyor systems that help the processor meet all food-safety requirements and increase cleaning effectiveness and efficiencies.
As standards for hygienic manufacturing change with new sanitary regulations, manufacturers can struggle to keep up. Regulations require operations to modify or even replace existing material handling sanitary conveyor for new, updated conveyor equipment that meets current regulations. Nercon’s sanitary conveyor systems come in a variety of configurations, and materials making it possible to meet today’s stringent sanitary standards while still optimizing production operations.

Factors to consider when purchasing the right sanitary conveyor that will safely and efficiently move material through a sanitary production environment.
- Construction: In hygienic environments, sanitary conveyor systems need to have sanitary surfaces such as stainless steel, and a limited number of horizontal surfaces, which need to be cleaned. These surfaces can be collection points for contaminants, including bacteria. Seamless welds also protect from contaminant build up. Welding beads that aren’t ground flush with the surface will create crevices that are breeding grounds for bacteria.
- Belting: Because the belt on a conveyor is the primary contact surface, choosing the right belting for the application is crucial to sanitary production. Also consider the belt’s release characteristics, ability to be cleaned and wear resistance.
- Ease of Sanitation: Sanitation and ease of cleaning is the most important part of a sanitary conveyor. Conveyors need to withstand the day-to-day sanitary routine of a operation. Nercon’s sanitary belt and MatTop conveyor can be efficiently dismantled in minutes for easy cleaning.
- Downtime: Manufacturing is always fighting against unnecessary downtime. Minimizing downtime by selecting a conveyor option that requires no tools to lift or remove the belt is helpful. Nercon’s sanitary belt conveyor is more modular than ever.
