SideDrive Conveyor provides sanitary spiral and long-run transferless conveyors for virtually any application, including naked, raw, and packaged food products as well as non-food products. Using only side drive, edge-driven technology from Intralox, SideDrive Conveyor helps manufacturers improve productivity and streamline production with food-safe and flexible conveyors that offer a low total cost of ownership.
Made with USDA-compliant plastic, the belting, drives, rods and sprockets all stand-up to high-pressure washdown environments for thorough cleaning. The plastic design also eliminates any risk of contamination since there’s no metal or need for lubrication.
SideDrive Conveyors are also flexible and can meet the needs of any application, plant floor layout or production need. Thanks to the modular, plastic belting from Intralox, conveyors can be configured in any way — curved, spiral, with turns, multiple inclines and declines, or simply straight — and without any transfers.
The unique design of SideDrive’s food safe conveyors offer a low total cost of ownership. The lightweight, plastic materials increase belt life by reducing overall friction of the conveyor system when in motion, making it less likely to fatigue compared to traditional metal belt conveyors. This, combined with an even, transferless belt path, reduces product loss by up to 80% while maintaining product integrity.
