Co-op Farms improve potato handling with UPM Conveyors

Conveyor-007The Co Operative Farms who are the largest farmer in the UK currently farming over 70000 acres in England and Scotland recently decided to improve the efficiency of their potato handling system in Tamworth Staffs by modifying existing conveyors to incorporate two 180 degree bends supplied by UPM Conveyors in their all plastic Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) construction which meet all of the new regulations for food contact approval.

Simon Wood Engineering Manager of Co Operative Farms commented that quote “UPM Conveyors clearly take pride in their workmanship in producing such excellent quality products which shows they care about their customers needs and that reflects on the reaction from their customers operators who feel appreciated so we will definitely use UPM again in the future and will recommend them to our other divisions” unquote. UPM were able to enhance the design of the UHMWPE belt conveyors by incorporating a channel top and bottom in the conveyor side wall so the belt locates and is guided eliminating the need to track or tension the belt.
