Cablevey Conveyors Pet Food Solutions
Cablevey Conveyors has worked with some of the biggest pet food manufacturers in the world. Its tubular cable and disc conveyor technology is suitable for cleanly moving all types of pet food mixes and materials. They are designed to overcome the sanitation and efficiency challenges presented by traditional bucket elevators, which require more production downtime for proper cleaning.
Similar to producers of consumer foods, pet food manufacturers must comply with regulations set by the Food Safety Modernization Act, Food and Drug Administration, and Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act. The enclosed tubes in tubular drag cable conveyors are easy to clean due to such features as steel alloys (including Alloy 304 and Alloy 316) that simplify sanitization.
They also excel at minimizing breakage. Compared to pneumatic conveyors, vacuums, and screw augers, Cablevey conveyors consistently keep blends intact throughout all stages of production. This is crucial for high-quality pet food because manufacturers must keep their blends nutritionally rich.
