Sterile Conveyor Belts System

Our conveyor systems are designed and built from high-quality stainless steel which can be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and sterilised safely without corrosion or absorption. The quick-release belts allow for quick sterilisation and turnaround between pharmaceutical materials.

Reduce cross-contamination

Many factories package various drugs and cross contamination needs to be reduced – stainless steel belts make it easier to reduce this with low maintenance sanitation.

  • 10 positions maximum
  • Impulse counter up to 9999 signals from the process machine
  • Free access under the unit to allow for storage and better access
  • Plug in frame connection attachment
  • Test function on control for the position setting prior to automatic start
  • Automated safety programmed – return to the fill position
  • 240v power supply
  • Stainless steel chutes ensure no corrosion
  • Optional clear perspex cover for chute for the safety of the staff

Maintain Temperature

Under Belt Cooling Fans

Many pharmaceutical chemicals and raw materials need to be kept at a consistent temperature. Hence, a critical part of your conveyor equipment is under belt cooling fans which are built in as part of the line and offers precision in temperature maintenance.

  • Located beneath the belt surface to blow ambient air onto products
  • UPM will advise on the most efficient number of fans and types of fans depending on temperature and belt width
  • Equipped with a temperature sensor with automatic reset
  • 220v AVpower supply
  • Quiet at 55dBa
  • Ambient airflow of 375 m3/h per fan
