mk North America Delivers Efficiency in Hygenic & Sanitary Environments with Stainless Steel Conveyor Line
mk North America Posted 11/22/2016
mk North America, an industry leading provider in conveyor solutions, continues to innovate the food and pharmaceutical industries with its CleanMove line of products, originally introduced to the market in February 2015. Acting as the latest in a long line of developments from mk, CleanMove is a full sanitary stainless steel conveyor product line.
Born out of both necessity and request from mk's customer base, the stainless steel CleanMove line of conveyors both complete and complement current conveyor offerings from mk. After careful development, mk released its first food-grade conveyor into the marketplace in late 2012. Thanks to the presence of a senior engineer on staff with years of extensive food handling experience, the company was able to naturally transition into stainless steel conveyors for general use.
"After creating similar products for years as custom offerings time and again, we decided that the time was right to make these stainless steel options a standard part of our business," said Viet Nguyen - Engineering Manager, Stainless Steel Technology. "We wanted to give our customers access to all of the tools that they would need to increase efficiency in hygienic and sanitary environments; the CleanMove product line was born."
The CleanMove product catalog showcases all three sanitation levels in the CleanMove platform: Standard, Plus, and Ultra. The catalog also showcases four different conveyor types and a complete line of accessories, belts and other motor options that customers can choose from depending on their needs.
The Standard, Plus, and Ultra platforms in the CleanMove product line are listed in order from the lowest to highest levels of sanitation. The four different conveyor platforms that mk offers include a belt conveyor, a plastic modular belt conveyor, a flat top chain conveyor, and a positive drive belt conveyor. The flat top chain conveyor is only available with the Standard and Plus class, while the positive drive belt conveyor is only available in the Ultra class.
