Equipment Snapshot: Capway Automation’s new Provident Depanner marks an advance in depanner technology thanks to complete washdown capabilities for the depanner, vacuum chamber and conveyor.

The Provident is built to meet FDA, USDA, and ANSI 50.2 standards, as well as the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety. Its vacuum chamber and conveyor system both carry an IP69K washdown rating.

Instead of sitting on top of the depanner, the blower module is a rollout unit, simplifying servicing and cleaning. Sanitation and “cleanability” are reflected throughout, from its sloped top surface to its sealed stainless steel bearings.

The depanner itself is accessible and simple to clean thanks to USDA castors for easy portability. Stainless steel actuators are accessible, easy to clean, sealed and IP69-rated. Attention to detail is reflected in the way the drums are welded solid to the drive pulley, as well as in the FDA washdown-certified polyplastic bushings.

Even the pan conveyor is fully washdown, thanks to a range of components including round tubing and spacers, sloped feet, stainless standoffs and stainless covers. Plus, it features a new magnetic belt by Intralox that requires less hp because it produces less drag.
