FMC FoodTech out to eclipse conveyor rivals.
Also called the next generation in conveyors, the Eclipse is non-mechanical with a modular distribution design. The line offers processors efficiency and flexibility for a variety of applications, from processing to packaging. It is enhanced with proprietary software that enables line processors to maximize the speed of the conveyor with a variable range up to 300 RPM. Because it is non-mechanical and counter-balanced, vibration does not impact the product on the processing line.
"The Eclipse is designed with a zero vertical lift and provides very gentle handling, which will not damage the product or shake off seasoning," said Neil Anderson, general manager of sales and marketing of Allen Systems PPM for FMC FoodTech. "Also, smaller products do not segregate to the bottom of the material bed and the coatings do not build up on the surface pan."
The new conveyor offers a streamlined and efficient isolation system and can be either floor or ceiling mounted. It consists of a pan, counter stoking base mass and a crank eccentric that is attached to the servo motor. Aside from the servo motor, the only other replaceable mechanical parts are the crank bearings and four rollers.
