Environmental Scrub Sampler
The 3M environmental scrub sampler with 10 mL wide spectrum neutralizer is a solution for environmental microbial sampling applications. Designed for use with downstream detection methods such as 3M Petrifilm Plates and the 3M Molecular Detection System, this new technology offers the food manufacturing industry a broad solution for proactive, integrated environmental monitoring and food microbiological testing. The scrub sampler is an environmental microbial sampling device used to collect samples from surfaces within food processing environments and is designed with acrylic scrub dot technology to disrupt biofilm and enhance sample collection, comes with or without a stick to access hard-to-reach spaces, and is hydrated with a wide spectrum neutralizer for effective neutralization of sanitizers commonly used in the food industry. 3M, 800-328-6553, 3m.com/environmentalscrubsamplerinnovative.
Interior Roll-Up Door
The new RR200 UltraSeal interior roll-up door from Albany has a slim design and tight seal that make it useful for applications where space is limited. The door’s opening and closing speeds and patented low-friction, gravity-driven technology can help optimize production processes. The door’s patented bead design also creates a superior seal that minimizes levels of dirt and contaminants in interior areas, while also providing improved climate control. For safety, the curtain will automatically reinsert itself into the side guides if the door is ever hit, an infrared photo-eye will reverse the door if an obstruction is detected, and a soft bottom door curtain protects both people and products. The door is also available in a stainless steel version. Albany, 800-252-2691, albanydoors.us.
This conveyor from Fortress Technology features a quick release and disassembly of the deck, belt, motor, and rollers. During the sanitization process, machine operators simply unclip and disconnect the conveyor motor and lift out the entire assembly. In seconds, the conveyor belt can be removed, along with its individual components, such as rollers and bearings. The belt tension and alignment are instantly restored when clipped back into place after maintenance and cleaning, which can improve line efficiencies. To further advance inspection efficiency, the enhanced belt design also eliminates noise, which can cause unwanted vibration, which affects metal detection sensitivity and check-weighing accuracy.
