A Wisconsin apple processor needed a special conveyor. The application called for a conveyor to be partially submerged in a large tank of water. Jets inside the tank circulate water to guide apples toward the cleated, plastic-chain-operated conveyor belt, which moves the apples to the next processing stage.

Engineer's Special Products (ESP), a program that designs conveyors with unique dimensions and characteristics above and beyond the dimensions of regular conveyor platforms, built a heavy-duty sanitary conveyor for the apple processor.

The conveyor, part of the AquaPruf family of sanitary conveyors, was built specifically to conform to the customer's application: 32 inches wide, eight feet long. Since the conveyor would be submerged in water, the front bearings were removed and replaced with a sprocket spinning on a round shaft for better performance.

Delivery of an ESP AquaPruf sanitary conveyor and related accessories is typically four weeks from final approval. Dorner Mfg. Corp.
