Australis Engineering introduces the Hygenius Food Grade Conveyors – the truly clean and hygienic conveyor. Perfect for raw meat, poultry, seafood, pet food, fruit and veggies and dairy.

Designed with European Hygienic Engineering Design Group principles and certified components, Hygenius takes less than two minutes to disassemble and reassemble – all without tooling.

EHEDG approved components such as Volta polyurethane belts, washdown rated, hygienic motors, washdown rated bearings and hygienic feet are utilised. The design also eliminates exposed screw threads and incorporates our unique, Clean Belt Tensioning and Tracking System.

With safety at the forefront, the Hygenius food grade conveyors open frame design also has fully guarded head and tail areas for operator safety. This is a requirement that is often overlooked in other wash down conveyors.

The conveyor system is specifically designed to minimise areas where food or product can accumulate which reduces the risk of bacterial contamination of your product. Importantly, this also allows for a faster cleaning process and with significantly less cracks and crevices, allows for a more thorough cleaning process. By reducing the potential for bacterial growth, you can improve food safety for your customers.

Key features and options:

  • Washdown ready
  • Volta SuperDrive and Mini-SuperDrive Belts
  • Clean belt tensioning and tracking
  • Quick belt release for easy belt removal
  • Belt lifter for cleaning underneath the belt
  • Toolless removal of the belt running strips for fast and easy cleaning
  • Fully guarded head and tail pulleys for safety
  • Quick remove belt return rollers
  • Full 304 Stainless Steel construction or 316 Stainless Steel option
  • Anti-bacterial plastic running strips (optional)
  • Stainless steel motors, NSD TupH treated motors and Teflon coated motor options
