The poultry industry is a challenging one for suppliers of automation components because of the harsh environment, with extremes of temperature and the caustic chemicals used in the washdown process. TSI Solutions represents a number of suppliers which offer stainless steel bodies, chemical resistant coatings, and special high and low temperature seals and grease to stand up to the toughest conditions.
PHD IP67 Electric Slide for Marking Carcasses
This electric slide is used in a 34°F freezer area of the meat plant. The competitor’s unit would only last about 6 months. The competitor used an aluminum slide which would corrode and a magnetically coupled device which would uncouple in the extreme cold. The PHD unit is constructed of stainless steel and food grade components, including the bearings and belt. The slide is designed for high-speed actuation for the food industry, caustic wash-down environment. It is suitable for horizontal or vertical applications.
