The essential requirement to be fulfilled when designing conveyor systems for food industry is hygiene. Strict hygiene and sanitation standards for food industry provide for regular washing and disinfection of machines and conveyors.

Thanks to high-quality design and used materials, they can withstand frequent high-pressure cleaning operations with water and disinfectants. This will allow for easy elimination and prevention of bacteria formation, especially where food comes into direct contact with conveyor systems.
