Automatic Guided Vehicles for the Food & Beverage Industry
JBT Corporation vehicles are well suited to perform general material handling operations within the food industry including raw material storage, raw material transportation, finished goods storage and finished goods transportation to the shipping area.
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.
