Many applications, such as Food and Pharmaceuticals, simply cannot allow the use of wooden pallets due to hygiene restrictions and/or contamination risks. Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, (HACCP), Good Manufacturing Practice, (GMP), guidelines and U.S. Federal Food and Drug Administration, (FDA), regulations are all set in place to help ensure public health safety. What can they do to comply? Unlike a pallet inverter, the stationary pushpull-systems like the SPC & SPI does not invert the goods meens no contamination.
A Stationary Pallet Changer is used to transfer goods from one load carrier to another in order to reduce contamination risks or validation issues with products that cannot be inverted.
A Stationary Pull Installation is used to transfer goods from one load carrier to another within a cleanroom area where no wood is allowed because of hygiene regulations.
When goods need to be transferred quickly from wooden to plastic pallets or vice-versa, in order to reduce contamination risks or validation issues with products that cannot be inverted, we offer our Stationary Pallet Changer. For sensitive and or dedicated loads the stationary pull installation is used without the risks associated with clamping or pushing. When freezer spacers must be removed or bagged goods need to be transferred, our Pallet Inverter becomes the most useful tool.
ROLLERFORKS® and Push-Pull attachments help simplify palletless handling:
- Maximize cube utilization within trailers and containers.
- Reduce pallet investment expense.
- Easy compliance for HACCP and ISPM 15 regulations.
