The AquaPruf Ultimate conveyor from Dorner (Hartland, WI) is now 3-A certified. Evaluating equipment for 3-A certification is performed by an objective, independent third-party verification inspection to ensure that the AquaPruf Ultimate conveyor has successfully met the requirements of the 3-A sanitary standard in the design and fabrication of equipment used in food processing.
Helping to achieve 3-A certification were recent updates to the platform to incorporate the latest engineering designs to provide the highest level of sanitary standards, and the fastest cleaning times, for applications such as meat, poultry, fish and ready-to-eat.
Dorner’s AquaPruf Ultimate conveyor comes with several industry-leading sanitary features, including:
All internal frame components, except belted product, are polished to 32 micro-inches (1 micro-inch equals one-millionth of an inch)
All bearings are external to the conveyor and a minimum of 25 mm away from the food zone
Drive sprocket design includes a quick cleaning system to ensure cleaning can be done below the sprocket surface
Patent-pending idler tail cleaning system on modular belt and positive drive belt models
Belting and chain meet 3-A certification, as well as USDA and NSF requirements
Sanitary threadless feet design for all support stands
Radii on all internal components meet the 6 mm (0.25”) standard requirement
