FKI Logistex Launches Stainless Steel Conveyor
Rollerless system suited for product washdown and available in wide array of styles

(St. Louis, MO: November 01, 2004) FKI Logistex® (www.fkilogistex.com), a global leader in integrated material handling solutions, announces the launch of its Stainless Steel Conveyor. Built in rugged stainless steel and fully rated for product washdown, FKI Logistex Stainless Steel Conveyor is designed to meet the needs of food, beverage, and consumer goods manufacturers.

With side frames built in 304 polished stainless steel and all fabricated parts available in stainless steel, FKI Logistex Stainless Steel Conveyor can be wet-cleaned after production runs. Its corrosion-resistant construction reduces wear and tear and extends conveyor component life over traditional non-stainless designs.

FKI Logistex Stainless Steel Conveyor expands on the proven FKI Logistex Accumat® rollerless conveying system, offering styles for zero-pressure accumulation, transportation, incline, decline and metering. Like Accumat, FKI Logistex Stainless Steel Conveyor uses a modular plastic-belt conveying surface, eliminating the need for rollers and providing a continuous surface for product conveying. The belted surface also decreases the number of moving parts, simplifying maintenance, installation and start-up.

FKI Logistex Stainless Steel Conveyor operates at speeds up to 300 feet per minute, has a live load weight capacity of 70 lb. per foot, and can convey a variety of items, from shrink-wrapped packages to corrugated boxes.

Backed by the industry's best service and support, FKI Logistex Stainless Steel Conveyor offers a wide variety of side-guide styles and optional features that allow for flexibility in system design. For further flexibility, FKI Logistex now also offers traditional roller and belt conveyor with FKI Logistex stainless steel frames.

For an onsite demonstration of FKI Logistex Stainless Steel Conveyor and its integration with other FKI Logistex material handling equipment, visit FKI Logistex at booth S-2636 during PackExpo 2004 in Chicago, November 7-11.
