"Each piece of the puzzle fit perfectly, and we completed the installation days early - unprecedented for the size and scope of the project! The equipment met all of our expectations, and continues to perform exceptionally well, 17 hours per day and six days per week. And after all our discussions regarding product breakage, I am glad to tell you that it is a non-issue!"

Compact accumulation conveyor reduces product damage

Compact accumulation conveyor reduces product damage
Heat and Control’s SwitchBackTM conveyor provides in-line accumulation of delicate snacks, baked products, frozen meats, and other foods. Gentle horizontal motion conveying and unique sloped pan configurations prevent product damage by eliminating abrupt drops and stops.

Composed of two independent FastBack® conveyors, SwitchBack automatically stores product in the lower unit while conveying product in the opposite direction in the upper feed conveyor. Available for capacities of 30 or 45 cubic feet, (0.85 m3 or 1.25 m3) the system requires less floor space than comparable accumulation conveyors.

This patent-pending design requires no photoeyes, product detection devices, gates or trolleys, making it ideal for reliable operation in wet wash down environments. Gentle FastBack horizontal motion conveying prevents the loss and build-up of product coatings in the conveyor pans and eliminates the need for mid-shift cleaning downtime.
