Key Technology introduces its newest vibratory conveyor, Iso-Glide. An engineered modification of Key's popular Iso-Flo vibratory conveyor, Iso-Glide achieves a motion that resembles horizontal motion, which maximizes sanitation while offering gentle handling and quiet operation. Iso-Glide can perform a range of product handling and packaging distribution functions, including scale feed applications. It is ideal for many frozen food processors.

Iso-Glide allows processors to experience the continuous self-cleaning benefits of horizontal motion conveying but on an Iso-Flo platform. Product virtually slides along the stainless steel conveyor bed, which prevents the buildup of coatings, oils and seasonings. By limiting vertical acceleration to almost 1 g, Iso-Glide helps reduce plant-level noise that traditional direct drive or other vibratory conveyors can produce with conveying surface-to-product contact.

"With the addition of our new horizontal motion conveyor, Horizon,
earlier this year and now Iso-Glide to our Smart Shaker family of conveyors, Key offers customers the most complete selection of conveying technologies from one manufacturer," noted Steve Johnson, Product Marketing Manager at Key Technology. "Our broad family of conveyors, together with our engineering expertise and integration services, allow us to create the ideal custom line for almost every situation in a food processing plant."
