One common application, as shown in the photo, is loading of food and/or trays into sterilizers.  The Automatic Batch Retort vehicle is specially designed for this application. It is equipped with gasketed stainless steel body panels giving the vehicle wash-down capability. Hidden underneath the conveyor deck, the chassis features a drain pan with a remote drain valve to keep the vehicle and floor clean in case of a messy load. Other features include zinc plated casters, splash proof motors, and splash proof external buttons and switches. A clear, flexible membrane covers the operators panel for waterproofing.
