Dorner’s new AquaGard LP conveyor was debuted only a few weeks before PACK EXPO Las Vegas, so we can consider it a truly 'new' product release here in Philadelphia. It's designed to fit in tight spaces, making it, the company says, the ideal sanitary conveyor for dry or wipe-down applications within the packaging, pharmaceutical, confectionary, bakery and other packaged food industries.
The AquaGard LP (low profile) is the latest reiteration in the AquaGard sanitary conveyor platform. This updated version features a low-profile stainless steel frame with compact 1.25-in. diameter end-roller pulleys, enabling the conveyor to fit in tight spaces in and around other machinery, as well as safely operate in close proximity to employees. The pulleys also aide in the efficient transfer of small- to medium-sized products on and off the conveyor.
The AquaGard LP’s standard tip-up tail design provides operators complete, easy access to the frame and under the belt for cleaning. Dorner’s reliable V-guided belting ensures precise belt and product tracking along with the enclosed tensioning system keeps the belt to the proper tension and provides smooth snag-free cleaning.
Engineered to meet high sanitary standards, the AquaGard LP has earned the coveted Baking Industry Sanitary Standards Committee (BISSC) certification, which is recognized as the definitive sanitation and safety standards for equipment used in the baking industry.

The system is available in straight configurations; FDA approved belt types: cleated, flat, high friction and others. It also has toolless, flexible guiding options, and a 10-day lead time.
