  • Dumping Equipment Options Help Meet Food Safety Goals Posted last year
    In the video are two options that can be added to a dumper system to eliminate debris from finding its way into the product. The first is a pallet retention system (PRS) which is integrated into the loading base. It is engineered to securely remove the pallet away from the product “dump zone” so that wood and other impurities are prevented from entering the product stream. The next option is the liner hold-down mechanism which is also engineered to hold back the liner during the dumping process. These options meet food safety goals and the liner hold-down prevents operators from having to reach and try to control the liner by hand.
