Conveyors for Special Environments
mk offers conveyors that work in many unique and special environments. Many times the solution is as simple as changing out a component, such as the belt, to one more acceptable for the specific environment. These special and unique environments include: clean rooms, food and pharmaceutical plants, explosive environments, abrasive environments and ovens and freezers. Both mk's aluminum frame low profile conveyors and stainless steel hygienic conveyors are suitable for many locations.
Examples of Special Enviroments
mk's stainless steel CleanMove conveyors are ideal in washdown environments. Within the CleanMove conveyor platforms the Plus and Ultra classes are specifically designed for caustic cleaning and operating in caustic environments.
While the stainless steel conveyors from mk can be used in high temperature applications and environments, often time it is only the product that sees this high temperature. In this case specialty belting can be used with their standard aluminum frame conveyors. In extreme cold environments special care needs to be taken in selecting the conveying platform, and mk is able to equip motors with space heaters.
Abrasive applications, like those found glass and ceramics plants as well as various automotive processes; require a review of the application and product in order to determine the best possible engineered conveyor solution. Modifications to conveyors in these environments can include changing the belt and/or slider bed material. As well as modifications to the drive assembly and motor selection.
In cleanroom and explosive environments it is often necessary to adhere to specifications set forth by various regulating bodies. mk is able to offer conveyors to operate in clean rooms up to class 1,000. For explosive environments mk is able to offer solutions for the various class and divisions, depending on the particulars of the application.
