The Conti-TDS machines, working on the rotor/stator principle, are in full compliance with the 3-A Sanitary Standard. All product contact surfaces of the machines meet the 3-A design criteria and can be easily inspected, cleaned, sanitized and maintained. The patented Conti-TDS system operates dust-free and loss-free and offers clean-in-place without disassembly.
According to 3-A SSI, equipment meeting the 3-A Sanitary Standards brings the most modern cleaning and sanitizing methods, materials and systems to manufacturing processes. As a result of this increased efficiency in equipment cleaning, processors can expect lower cleaning costs. Inspections also generally run more smoothly when equipment complies with 3-A Sanitary Standards.
“This is quite a significant achievement for this machine,” states Rick Isherwood, president of Powder Technologies, Inc. “We believe in its capability to improve manufacturing efficiencies, but with the 3-A stamp of approval we have independent validation of that fact.”
In addition to the YSTRAL Conti-TDS machine, the YSTRAL PiloTec machines have also successfully passed the 3-A certification process. The PiloTec offers similar capabilities to the Conti-TDS, but does so on a test or pilot run basis. The Conti-TDS and the Pilo-Tec, join YSTRAL’s Z-Inline dispersing machines to achieve 3-A SSI Sanitary Standard certification.
