Looking for food processing packaging and conveyor components? Here at Slideways we offer the industry’s top-of-the-line food processing packaging conveyor components. What makes ours stand out from the competition is the durable, highest quality plastic we use in the manufacture of our food processing packaging and conveyor parts and components.
Plastics are ideal for food industry processing packaging and conveyor parts and components because they create parts that are:
- Lighter weight
- Lower friction
- Wear and corrosion resistant
- Quieter running
- Lower cost
From commercial bakeries and food processing/packaging operations to beverage manufacturers and bottling and canning plants, a food processing packaging and conveyors that include food-grade plastic components provides longer life and lower maintenance costs. Because plastic food processing packaging and conveyor parts and components are resistant to the harsh chemicals used in washdowns, they last longer and need less maintenance and replacement.
Different varieties of plastics are USDA, FDA, NSF and 3-A compliant. These different certifications designate that the plastic food processing packaging and conveyor parts and components are safe for a wide-range of food applications, and can eliminate food contamination. Steel is not as sanitary as plastic.
Many plastic compounds used in our food processing packaging and conveyor parts operate easily in freezing to boiling temperatures — ideal for food-processing applications. In general, metals have a limited temperature range or require expensive, specialized, high-temperature food-grade lubricants.
Many plastics have relatively low moisture absorption rates (from either food ingredients or wet processing environments). Steel food processing conveyor components such as bearings and conveyor parts can corrode or lose their lubrication from constant wash downs, which can cause production lines to seize up. Even higher cost stainless steel bearings can fail for the same reasons.
Plastic food packaging and conveyor parts/components are manufactured for extended use and last significantly longer than steel, enabling food processors to reduce replacement costs on the production line. Their self-lubricating capability eliminates the need for manual lubrication and promotes longer life for food processing conveyor components.
