QC Industries has launched what it claims are the first modular belt conveyors that can be disassembled without tools to make cleaning quick and easy.

The HydroClean sanitary conveyors feature a series of pull-pins, sides and guides that can slide off in one piece and stand brackets can flip down out of the way.

The tail can be flipped up to relieve tension on the belt, and the belt, drive, and tail can be removed for cleaning.

They feature a self-draining frame, minimal horizontal surfaces, no exposed threads, and hex head fasteners to minimize opportunities for bacteria growth.

David Dornbach, president of QC Industries, said it spent three years developing the conveyors.

HydroClean conveyors handle speeds up to 300 feet per minute with loads up to 120 lbs. Widths are available in increments from 4” to 24” and lengths from 3 to 18 feet. 

“This product has been through the most extensive beta test of any conveyor we’ve ever created, with test sites in a wide variety of industries including several large food processing facilities​,” said Brad Marx, QC Industries’ research and development supervisor.
