Sanitary Bulk Tote Dumpers
Bulk Material Introduction and Sanitary Design
Processing and packaging facilities with sanitary operations know, as a matter of fact, it is their responsibility to produce safe product. Armed with this knowledge, production and operations management are now looking upstream, to the bulk material introduction stage, as one of the first steps to product safety. The design and construction of NBE sanitary bulk tote dumpers brings high-capacity, performance-proven duty; combined with optimal compliance contribution (OCC) to the upstream bulk material introduction stage to assist in product safety improvements through:
- Preventing product contamination
- Aligning equipment design with sanitary facility requirements
- Improving labor efficiency
- Reducing cleaning times
- Minimizing consumables use
- Protecting operations and inspection personnel
- Enabling repeat validation and inspection compliance
Producing Specifications Beyond the Standards
Materials of Construction
The application-specific materials of construction engineered into each NBE sanitary bulk tote dumper reflect the unique melding of NBE compliance knowledge and process engineering expertise. NBE sanitary bulk container dumpers bring to hygienic processing and packaging operations reduced cleaning time targets, reliable and repeatable validation, and confident inspection events.
|> Type 316L Stainless Steel Sheet and Plate
Type 316L Stainless Steel Sheet and Plate
Areas of product contact, and adjacent areas, are constructed of Type 316L stainless steel; continuous-weld seams, ground to a No. 4 finish, prevent microbial contamination.
|> Carbon Steel Framework Finished to FDA Standards
Carbon Steel Framework Finished to FDA Standards
When carbon steel is a specified, compliant material, those surfaces are first sandblasted, then fabricated with smooth-ground weld seams, and primed and painted with FDA-approved epoxy paint.
|> Non-metallic Materials Specified to Ensure Compliance
Contaminant Protection & Abatement
The process-specific design of NBE sanitary bulk tote dumpers represents a comprehensive approach to maintaining a reliable and repeatable level of validation. NBE sanitary bulk tote dumper systems design and construction eliminates the resource waste and compliance worries common with process-inappropriate bulk container dumpers.
NBE bulk tote dumpers, built specifically for sanitary processing and packaging applications, eliminate the added costs and hindrances to equipment cleaning, validation, and inspection that processors have had to tolerate from re-purposed, borderline-compliant bulk material tote dumpers. NBE sanitary tote dumpers reduce labor, consumables, and energy costs associated with cleaning events while improving optimal compliance contribution (OCC).
|> No. 4 Finish, Hand-burnished Weld Seams
No. 4 Finish, Hand-burnished Weld Seams
All weld seams are continuous welds; weld seams in product contact and adjacent areas are ground to a No. 4 finish; hand burnishing of weld seams aids material release and cleaning.
|> Utility Lines and Hoses; Unbundled and Accessible
Utility Lines and Hoses; Unbundled and Accessible
To prevent accumulation of food, dirt, or other organic matter, the utility lines and hoses are left unbundled, easing accessibility for cleaning and visual validation and inspection.
|> Single-piece, Laser-cut Frame Reduces Cleaning Steps
Single-piece, Laser-cut Frame Reduces Cleaning Steps
Laser-cut from structural sheet, frame elements have no internal angles, corners, or welded seams common with tubular construction; reducing cleaning steps and consumables use.
The protection of personnel is the first priority of NBE sanitary bulk material handling equipment design. NBE sanitary bulk tote dumpers work to ensure worker safety and performance-proven functionality while still fulfilling application-specific product safety requirements. NBE hygienic bulk container dumpers are built to provide accessibility, cleanability, and reliable inspection outcomes.
|> Fully Enclosed, Tool-less Access Hydraulic Cabinet
|> Tool-less Designs Ease Visual and Physical Access
Tool-less Designs Ease Visual and Physical Access
Easy reach to the discharge hood and one-person, tool-less removal of the hatch gate enables safe, visual validation and inspection, and obstruction-free physical access to internal surfaces.
