Metal-detectable, flexible plastic
Company: Heat and Control Inc., Hayward, CA
Equipment Snapshot: KleenFlex is a thin, flexible plastic that is metal-detectable and approved for contact with food by the FDA and USDA. According to Heat and Control, the plastic is more durable than similar materials and resistant to many food industry chemicals. Its blue color contrasts with most foods and is easily identifiable. KleenFlex can be used for product flow control skirts on weighers and conveyors, flexible partitions and shielding, and as an impact-dampening liner to protect delicate foods. Seams can be smooth welded to eliminate unsanitary glued overlaps.
