Used with automated batch retort systems, the Allpax automated shuttle features a telescoping basket loading and unloading option. The shuttle chain is rigid when extended and rolls up while retracting, allowing baskets or stacks of trays to be pushed into and pulled out of a retort. The shuttle can be custom designed to accommodate any diameter retort, and retorts that hold from 2 to 12 baskets or tray stacks. It also can be retrofitted to existing retorts.
