Freezer conveyors are not a problem for GRAPHALLOY.
A seafood processing plant in the Southeast was running a conveyor in their freezer area to "flash-freeze" fresh seafood. The environment is a difficult one: the temperature is cold (28 degrees F/-2 degrees C) and wet and the system requires frequent wash down. The conveyor bearings were being replaced every other month.
GRAPHALLOY 4-bolt flange block assemblies were installed and have been running successfully for more than five years. The company has since placed orders for additional flange assemblies for their freezer conveyor and fish wash down lines. GRAPHALLOY continues to work with the plant maintenance superintendent to identify other opportunities on their fish processing conveyors.
