State Of Conveying 2023 Report

Genera Food

Transferring food products with utmost care and precision is of great importance since most materials used in food processing are delicate and prone to breakage. A general food conveyor designed by Cablevey Conveyors helps overcome many challenges associated with the food industry, such as gentle conveying, safety, and cleanliness. Whether you’re dealing with granules, flakes, or even more delicate ingredients, our conveyor system provides a hygienic and reliable solution.

The Food Industry Heeds the Call for Increased Production

As the global population expands to an anticipated 9.3 billion by 2050, the Food and Agriculture Organization estimates the world’s agricultural industry will need to produce 60% more food to provide adequate nutrition for that size population. Every aspect of manufacturing and conveying can contribute to this goal, improve efficiencies, and reduce waste and breakage. The proper conveying system can help reduce waste and preserve product integrity.

Challenges of Conveying Food

Conveying food is a delicate process and has challenges that demand both attention and innovation. First and foremost, food items – because of their consistency and property, are prone to damage, breakage, or alteration in texture. This poses the risk of product waste and compromised quality. Additionally, hygiene and sanitation standards are exceptionally strict in the food industry. Contaminants, even in small quantities, can lead to spoilage or health risks, and that’s why there’s a demand for a clean environment throughout the whole process. Furthermore, the diversity in food items – from granules and liquids to fragile items like pastries, requires different conveying solutions that can adapt without compromising efficiency.

Tubular Conveying Helps Prevent Food Waste

Prevent food waste by preserving product integrity with a tubular drag conveyor from Cablevey. Whether processed, dried, frozen, or fresh, a Cablevey tubular drag conveyor can aid food processors and manufacturers that need gentle conveyance for delicate materials or ingredients to preserve quality and edibility. Tubular drag system conveyors are hygienic and offer shorter cycle times for more thorough cleaning than other conveyors, facilitating more rapid changeovers. The enclosed design helps prevent contamination and drastically reduces dust. Count on our depth of experience in the food industry for FDA-approved materials like 304 stainless and food-grade engineered plastics for proper compliance.

Why Upgrade Your Processing With a General Food Conveyor

In a world where efficiency, hygiene, and quality are non-negotiables in the food industry, the right conveying system becomes a necessity. That’s why considering a transition to a general food tube conveyor by Cablevey Conveyors should come to mind. Here is why upgrading your processes with our tubular conveyor belt system is the future of processing food:

  • A traditional belt conveyor system might compromise on the delicacy of certain ingredients, causing waste or altering their essential quality. Our bulk material handling equipment ensures that each particle, whether solid or granulated, is handled with the utmost precision and protection.
  • With the escalating demands for uncontaminated food processing, our custom conveyor belt for food design prioritizes hygiene. The enclosed nature minimizes external contaminants, while the construction assures that your products are in safe hands.
  • Reducing food waste has direct economic benefits. With improved product integrity, there’s a reduction in waste and, thus, a boost in profitability.
  • The food industry is diverse, and the requirements change with each product. Our tubular drag system is versatile and designed to cater to a wide array of food products, from dried and frozen to fresh and processed.

By upgrading to our automation conveyor systems, you are not only raising your operational efficiency but contributing to the overall quality of your products.

Challenges of Conveying Food

The “Clean In Place” (CIP) feature stands as an innovation in modern food processing and conveyance systems. Designed to sanitize and clean machinery without the need for disassembly, our CIP ensures that every nook and cranny of the system remains uncontaminated, guaranteeing the highest standards of hygiene. For industries that deal with a variety of food products, cross-contamination is a significant concern. Here, CIP shines again, ensuring that allergens from one product don’t linger to contaminate the next, thus maintaining product integrity and safety.

Additionally, CIP’s efficient use of water and cleaning agents makes it an environmentally friendlier option, reducing wastage. Using a combination of water, detergents, and sometimes heat, this system ensures that all residues, contaminants, and potential allergens are effectively cleaned.
