PPI Sanitary Components - Food Grade


The food industry has exceptionally high standards. If products fail to meet these standards, the impact could be significant. This is why so many in the industry trust PPI for their sanitary conveyor component needs. With over forty years of experience in the industry and the invaluable knowledge gained from their food division companies, KOFAB® and Meyer® Industries, Inc., customers can have confidence that they understand the challenges of the industry and how to overcome them.

K-Drive


PPI’s K-Drive is an engineered, one-piece pulley that drives today’s newest technologies of positive drive, low to no tension conveyor belting for the food industry.

This patented design combines composite and stainless steel to create one of the most sanitary designs for positive drive conveyor belting in the industry.

The K-Drive can be built to accommodate different styles of positive drive conveyor belting. As a drop in replacement of square shaft and sprockets assemblies, it will make your conveyor even more hygienic.

K-DRIVE REPLACES THE SHAFT AND SPROCKET DRIVE FOR A MORE SANITARY, EASY-TO-CLEAN OPTION.

Existing assembly drives consists of a square shaft with locking collars or snap rings to position sprockets in place.

These assemblies are difficult to clean and lends themselves to migrating sprockets which decreases drive efficiency.

PPI’s revolutionary one-piece, K-Drive technology eliminates those components for ease of cleaning and provides superior wear and less belt stress.
