Clean-Roll's Drip-Safe Feature Reduces Adulteration and Contamination Risks:
Are your doors good to the last drop?
In response to the new demands of the food manufacturing industry, the Rytec Corporation, a Jackson, Wisconsin-based manufacturer of high-speed rolling, folding and sliding doors, has enhanced their popular Clean-Roll ® door for active food processing environments. With the new Drip-Safe™ guard, the updated Clean-Roll roll-up door not only satisfies expectations for increased productivity and lower maintenance costs, it also meets compliance standards in the Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) and other food safety programs.
“In addition to compromised safety and quality, when food manufacturers hear the term ‘adulteration,’ they think of the FDA,” says Chase Deaton, national account manager for Rytec Corporation, Jackson, WI. “It’s important to review manufacturing and handling procedures by simply ‘following the path’ of the product. We’ve helped manufacturers find new ways to reduce liability—through almost every doorway.”
Actions that can be taken by the FDA when the cGMPs aren't followed range from "voluntary actions" that can be taken by firms to "regulatory actions" taken by the FDA against the firm and those responsible for noncompliance.
The Clean-Roll was redesigned to further prevent adulteration and contamination. The new system features the Drip-Safe™ guard-- a fully automated pneumatic drip-catch tray that moves under the roll drum when the door opens. When in place, the tray catches any last drop of liquid residue from falling onto product as it safely passes through the doorway. The tray automatically moves out of the threshold and back to the original position, allowing the door close. The original Clean-Roll featured a patented drip guard on the header and a sloped-edge bottom bar to reduce dripping. The new drip-catch tray dramatically improves these hygienic benefits of the door.
