In a confectionery production department, packaged chocolates need to be separated upon exiting the individual packaging unit and conveyed to the repackaging process. The conveyor unit needs to be mobile in design so that it can be used on different production lines. In addition, the parts of the unit that come into contact with the product must meet the hygiene standards for transporting foodstuffs.
Based on the GUF-P 2000 belt conveyor, a mobile belt conveyor with three separator conveyors mounted vertically above it was designed. The conveying path features a knife edge with a diameter of 12 mm at both the inlet and outlet side to ensure smooth delivery of the chocolates. To ensure optimum centring of the belt, the separator is equipped with round tails, the position of which can be adjusted. The conveyor belts are also FDA-compliant.
