Flexco Introduces the FGP Food Grade Primary Cleaner

February 27, 2015

 fgpFlexco is proud to introduce the FGP Food Grade Primary Cleaner to its line of light-duty belt conveyor products. The easy-to-install, easy-to-maintain food grade cleaner can be disassembled in less than a minute for regular cleaning and sanitation.


The simple design of the FGP Primary Cleaner features stainless steel components and FDA-approved, food-grade materials that limit negative spaces and crevices, which can encourage bacteria growth. There is no need to remove the cleaner from the structure for cleaning, sanitizing, and blade changes because of the snap-in-place design of the blade.


Ideal for the food processing industry, the FGP Primary Cleaner can be used from the time the food is harvested to the finished product. The FGP Primary Cleaner is designed to meet strict sanitary guidelines and has been certified by the USDA for use in meat, poultry, and dairy operations. Cleaner blades are available in both white and blue.


 “Each cleaner comes with stand-offs so that it can be bolt-mounted and still meet USDA requirements,” said Laurie Shorten, product manager at Flexco. “The stand-offs enable cleaning between the end plates and the conveyor without any disassembly of the cleaner.”


The cleaner is also easily tensioned to minimise blade wear and belt damage and maximise cleanability.


“The cleaner has a spring tensioner that can be easily adjusted to ensure optimal blade-to-belt contact, which maximises the cleaning capabilities,” said Shorten.


The FGP Primary Cleaner can be used on any light-duty belt from 102 mm to 1500 mm (4” to 60”).
