Plastics for safe and efficient meat, fish and poultry processing
Production facilities for the processing of meat, fish and poultry frequently consist of a large number of systems and components. Their reliability is of paramount importance, even after countless hours in operation. Designers must develop plants that are economical and low maintenance while at the same time compliant with requirements on hygiene and safety. We supply an extensive range of plastics specifically developed in order to meet these requirements. Suitable for contact with foods in accordance with 10/2011/EU and FDA requirements, they are used throughout the production chain, from conveyor systems through autoclaves to cutting boards.
Suitable for contact with food (EU Regulation 10/2011/EU and FDA)
Good slide properties help cut the energy costs of conveyor systems
High process stability
Long service life: high resistance to wear
Easy to clean
Suitable for use at low and high temperatures
Typical areas of application
Conveyor systems used in fish processing are designed with slide rails made of Polystone® D. The material is suitable for direct contact with food, is easy to clean and, thanks to its excellent sliding ability, enhances the efficiency of conveyors.
The performance and service life of materials used for the production and processing of meat, fish and poultry are influenced by a variety of factors. These criteria need to be considered in order to make the right choice. Examples:
Direct contact with food
Long-term usage temperature
Contact with cleaning agents
Design requirements, dimensions and tolerances
