Why Delicate Handling Matters

Delicate fresh produce, whether in loose or packed form, requires special attention to maintain its quality and appearance. The slightest mishandling can lead to bruising, damage, or contamination, compromising the integrity of the final product. This is especially critical in the salad and fresh fruit industry, where appearance and taste are paramount to consumer satisfaction.

Our conveyor systems are equipped with features such as soft start and stop mechanisms and adjustable speed controls to ensure that your delicate produce is transported smoothly and without jarring movements that can cause damage.

Applicable Types of Conveyor

  • Modular Belt Conveyors – These are well-suited for handling fresh produce like salad greens. They consist of interlocking plastic or metal modules that form a continuous belt. This design ensures smooth and consistent movement, preventing delicate salad ingredients from getting damaged during transportation.
  • PU (Polyurethane) Belt Conveyors – These offer excellent grip and stability when handling fresh produce. Their non-slip properties ensure that fruits and vegetables remain securely on the conveyor, reducing the risk of spills or product damage.
  • Chain Indexing Conveyors – These use a series of linked chains to move product in a controlled, step-by-step manner. This type of conveyor is ideal for applications where precise positioning and spacing of fresh produce are critical, such as arranging salad ingredients for packaging.
  • Vibratory Conveyors – These use controlled vibrations to move and align salad ingredients gently. This motion prevents bruising or damage to delicate items like lettuce leaves or berries. These conveyors are particularly useful for sorting and grading fresh produce, ensuring only the highest quality ingredients make it to the final product.

Our salad handling conveyors are constructed using high grade stainless steel to comply with food safety regulations, as well as minimising the risk of contamination.
