Arnott's New Adjustable Feet Bases Beat the Bugs
In response to the current climate of concern about superbugs like MRSA and E-Coli, Northampton based Arnott Handling Equipment has launched a new, innovative range of levelling feet for factory conveyor systems incorporating anti-bacterial Hygienilac.
This will be particularly relevant to food and pharmaceutical producers and processors where hygiene control is of particular importance.
Effective against a number of bacteria including MRSA, C-Difficile, Salmonella and E-Coli and certified by Bodycote Lawlabs, Hygienilac is already used in hospitals and care homes but this is the first time that it has been incorporated into adjustable feet in the conveyor industry.
The additive is homogeneously distributed through the moulded part and locked into the resin matrix, so it never wears off, unlike surface treatments. Furthermore, it does not employ silver technology so is not affected by UV light or by repeated washing and cleaning surfaces with non oxidizing cleaners.
Says Richard Frogley from Arnott Handling Equipment: We have been supplying companies with standard and bespoke conveyor accessories for over 30 years. We are adjustable feet experts and pride ourselves in being innovative and adapting designs where necessary to meet individual customers needs. This new range has been developed to assist our food and pharmaceutical customers in the fight against bacteria.
