Visual Checks of Bulk Material Flows
Brabender Technologie Creates New Hygienic Design for Weigh-Belt Feeder
Brabender´s weigh-belt feeder has been completely re-designed to be more hygienic. PETG windows on three sides of the weigh-belt feeder enable the operator to perform visual checks of bulk material flows at any time. The blue seals and bearings are made of plastic, which complies with EU Regulation 1935/2004 and the FDA standard for plastic components.
Removable Housing Sections for Ease of Access
The top and front faces are housing sections can be removed entirely. The operator now has full access to all components that come into contact with the product. The manufacturer offers different cover safety interlocks to match whatever accident prevention regulations the customer has to comply with. No-tool access as well as no-tool cleaning are standard.
The entire design focuses on easily removable components which can be dismantled bit by bit and then wet cleaned. This also applies to the inlet and the product side baffles. The belt tensioner can be locked in a raised position to enable the untensioned belt to be easily removed. All components are now wet cleaning-compatible.
All metal components are made of stainless steel – including the load cell, which has an IP67 rating. The stainless steel terminal box is separated from the housing by a spacer – also a hygiene detail. The aseptic motor does not have cooling fins or fan, thereby meeting hygienic standards too.
What’s also new is the weighing frame for loss-in-weight feeders, which is now used on all food equipment. It features stainless steel machine feet, sloped surfaces to enable liquids to easily run off and polished weld seams, which are almost undetectable.
