Many fresh-cut produce processors and packers have traditionally relied on belt conveyors to transport bulk and packaged product on their production lines, in part because low capital costs make these conveyors seem so affordable. But when ongoing maintenance and sanitation costs are factored in, the affordability equation shifts in favor of other conveyor types. Add performance issues like gentle handling and throughput into the analysis and each fresh-cut product and application points to its own ideal conveying solution.

In this white paper, we will explore the types of conveyor systems that are suitable for fresh- cut produce – belt conveyors, vibratory conveyors, and horizontal motion conveyors – highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each. We will consider a variety of fresh-cut products from leafy greens to whole and cut fruits and vegetables as well as a range of applications from simple conveying to dewatering, fines removal, and more.

The goal of this paper is to help fresh-cut processors and packers identify the most effective conveying solutions for their specific applications.
