Ammeraal Beltech: Modular food conveyance
The Pop-up flight is a simple but effective patent-pending modular food conveyor from Ammeraal Beltech that prevents food loss by “popping up” at the foot of the conveyor incline, supporting the food as it moves up the elevator, then, once the product’s been successfully discharged, pops down again so an automatic scraper can clean up the belt.
Especially helpful for clingy food products, the Pop-up flight stops product from failing to discharge and falling on the floor during the belt’s return journey. It makes it easy to maintain high hygiene levels, without constantly having to sweep floors and hand-clean sticky belts.
The Pop-up flights are simple to retro-fit to existing conveyor belt systems.
