Cablevey Enclosed Conveyor Prevents Contamination for Pet Food Processor
In every step of pet and animal food production, from receipt of raw materials through packaging, keeping foreign matter from entering the process stream, and maintaining hygiene are critical objectives.
So isretaining product identity preservation, which adds value by ensuring a quality product free of adulteration. As such, many food processors are reconsidering the use of “open” conveying systems such as bucket elevators and flat-belt conveyors in favor of enclosed systems designed to prevent exposure to ambient conditions and possible contamination.
Since enactment in 2011 of the Food & Drug Administration’s Food Safety Modernization Act, which also applies to pet and animal feed, the importance of preventing product contamination has only increased, with stringent product track and trace mandates as well as demands for safety.
