Heat and Control, Inc: Conveyors for every food product application
For moving heavy loads, fresh, frozen and fragile products, elevating, short-term storage, inspection, blending, and many other conveying applications, Heat and Control provides a variety of conveyors, distribution systems, and modular platforms.
FastBack 260E: Fast, gentle heavy load conveyor
FastBack 260E horizontal motion conveyors deliver twice the product travel rate of comparable conveyors, handle loads up to 60,000 lbs/hr., and accept pans up to 35 feet long. 260E significantly reduces product breakage and build-ups in the pan, eliminating unscheduled downtime for cleaning. Proven reliable in hundreds of installations, the patented 260E drive is designed with a lifecycle four times that of competitive conveyors, and requires no preventative maintenance.
FastBack 90E: Compact, powerful distribution conveyor
Small size and a powerful drive that accepts a variety of pan sizes make the FastBack 90E horizontal motion conveyor ideal for a variety of product distribution applications. Speed is programmable and automatically adjusts to match the demands of multihead weighers. Compact size facilitates access to weighers for sanitation.
FastBack Revolution gate: Proportional product distribution
Integrated into the end of FastBack conveyors, the Revolution rotary drum discharge gate distributes proportional amounts of product to multiple locations without starving downstream equipment. Product damage is reduced because, unlike conventional slide gates, Revolution’s rotating drum has no pinch-points.
SwitchBack: Gentle product accumulation
Ideal for fragile and frozen products, SwitchBack provides gentle handling and compact accumulation buffer between processing and packaging lines. With no gates or air cylinders, and few moving parts, SwitchBack is ideal for all environments including difficult washdown conditions.
Varilift: Upright buckets provide clean, trouble-free conveying
upright buckets prevent product spills and permit discharge from any point under a horizontal run. Varilift bucket conveyors are available with multiple infeed and discharge points, "S", "C" or horizontal configurations, and clean-in-place sprays.
MinuteMan: Storage conveyor cuts product breakage
Available in models with storage capacities from 90 to 300 cubic feet, MinuteMan accumulation conveyors provide on-demand delivery of fragile products. Minimal drop heights and soft vulcanized belts reduce product breakage. Synchronized speed control coordinates fill and discharge rates to eliminate the "hunt and seek" delays common to other storage conveyors.
Rapid Deployment platforms reduce installation time, cost
Factory assembled with conveyors, weighers, lighting and controls, our Rapid Deployment platform systems significantly reduce the time and cost of installation. These modular systems are pre-piped and wired with single point connections for air, gas, water and electricity and are set-up and checked prior to shipment to assure rapid, risk-free start-up.
