Dorner Flex Move Dry Cleaning Module

Designed for FlexMove conveyors, the dry cleaning module provides continuous cleaning of conveyor chain for applications involving powder, dust, and other dry contaminates, whereas the wet cleaning module, which are designed for Dorner’s stainless steel conveyors, provides uninterrupted cleaning of conveyor chain for applications with liquid, product overfill or package breakage.

Both modules operate by blowing air (for dry) or water (for wet) onto the conveyor belt through a closed housing system located on the frame underneath the conveyor. Both are designed to run continuously during operation, which provides longer, cleaner production runs with less overall maintenance. Additionally, both modules are completely mechanical, and do not require electrical components, programming or secondary motors.

Features and benefits of the Dry Cleaning Module include:

• Slave-driven rotary brush scrubs chain surface; compressed air blows off particles, and vacuum extracts dust.

• Clean design with minimal area for dirt and debris to accumulate

• Available on FlexMove aluminum conveyors, FS (65 mm); FM (85 mm); FC (150 mm)

• Size requirement: 700 mm (L) x 300 mm (H)
