Our HydroClean Conveyors recently received certification from NSF International, making them the first low profile belt conveyors with such a distinction.

NSF is among the world's most respected independent certification organizations. They have verified that HydroClean Conveyors comply with NSF/ANSI 2 standards for sanitary equipment, such as minimal horizontal surfaces where water can collect, no exposed threads, and the use of hex head fasteners. All of these features are designed to eliminate opportunities for bacteria growth.

To meet sanitary standards, equipment must also be easy to clean with common hand tools — a requirement we surpassed by designing a conveyor that requires no tools to disassemble for routine, in place cleaning.

In order for a HydroClean conveyor to be NSF certified, it must use either a sealed edge belt (PVF or MVG) or fully encapsulated belt (KVA or KVB). In addition, it must be ordered with a standard-duty, washdown-capable AC gearmotor.

NSF Certified conveyors will be delivered with the NSF logo on the serial number label to indicate compliance. These conveyors are also BISSC Certified for the baking industry.
