PFI Introduces Horizontal Motion Conveyor
Precision Food Innovation (PFI) has announced the introduction of PURmotionTM, a horizontal motion conveyor with advanced technology and sanitation.
PFI’s new horizontal motion conveyor, PURmotion, is designed with several advanced technological features, plus an IP69K rating on all critical components. Patent pending technology allows for nearly instantaneous reversal of product flow without stopping the machine along with the benefit of an amazingly quiet servo driven motor that gives the operator complete control and flexibility without disrupting upstream or downstream operations.
PFI engineers and designers used the recently-released Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) guidelines when they built the new conveyor. Constructed to possess superior sanitary standards, the PURmotion makes it easy to access every piece of the equipment. The structural framing lacks any hollow tubing making it nearly impossible for germs and bacteria to hide, the company claims.
Patents are pending on PURmotion features that allow operators to precisely control feed rates and have the ability to nearly instantaneously changing the direction of product flow without stopping the machine and disrupting upstream or downstream operations. In addition, there is no ramp-up time when an operator does need to stop and start, and even when fully loaded, starting and stopping will not damage the equipment.
Because the PURmotion uses gentle conveying, it is proper for coated and fragile products. Other products recommended for the PURmotion are agglomerated powders and extruded, flaked or pelletized products. The PURmotion keeps product in its lane and does not cause product to move or bounce around in the pan.
The PURmotion, as with all of PFI’s products, is easily customizable. Options include a variety of lengths, covers and gates, as well as being ceiling or floor mounted. The PURmotion can easily be integrated into existing or new food processing systems.
