Designed specifically for cleaning food grade OTR tankers, the Gamajet 88 incorporates two Gamajet E-Z8 spinners positioned to focus wash streams directly at the bulkheads. The angle of the spinners ensures a 90-degree angle of impingement at the bulkheads for best cleaning effect. Cleaning 360 degrees on every rotation, the 88 eliminates residual materials and the potential for bacterial growth. The unit fits through standard manways and requires the same pressure and flow as a conventional spinner.

Unitizing loads can reduceload-out time, labor costs, equipment, and worker’s compensation claims. American Conveyor’s all-stainless de-unitizers allow operators to pick product from floor storage with a clamp truck and place the unitized load on one of two de-unitizers. Stacks of product are single-filed and conveyed to one of eight high-speed pick lanes for load-out by a series of automatically selected divert gates. Ideal for dairies with direct store delivery routes, the system moves unitized loads without the need for palletizing or having operators drag stacks of full crates to an in-floor conveyor on the way to load-out.
