The role played by factory workers is a leading factor resulting in contamination outbreaks. Even when workers use gloves, there are many documented instances of holes in the gloves due to jewelry or unkept nails. Furthermore, long term use of gloves leads to microbial buildup and pathogen proliferation which can easily be transferred to the food. And according to a report from the U.S. National Institute of Health, the most pressing issue with gloves is that its use presents a false sense of security, resulting in high risk behavior.
When looking specifically at bag emptying, manual labor runs an extraordinarily high risk of food contamination. Aside from the issue of dirty hands, the sacks themselves when slit by hand often times results in foreign materials being emptied directly into the hopper with the food material. It is not uncommon to find metal pieces from a knife, plastic from the bag, small pieces of wood from the pallet and other pieces of junk that somehow attached itself to the sack.
LaborSave answers all these issues by presenting a completely sterile and guaranteed method of preventing food contamination during the course of the sack emptying.
By almost completely removing human interaction during the sack cutting and emptying process, LaborSave reduces the risk of contamination while simultaneously reducing production costs.
The LaborSave automatic sack emptying system used by food manufacturers come equipped with a sterile aspiration area where the actual cutting and emptying takes place. The low pressure chamber has a dual purpose of preventing foreign airborne contaminants from entering the hopper, as well as ensuring that none of the raw materials are released into the air.
The knives which slit open the sacks are made of a unique alloy which maintains its sterility by resisting airborne pathogens from resting on the blade, while the bottom most layer of sacks that were resting on the pallet are not cut until they are visibly inspected for contamination.
In an industry that can except no mistakes, LaborSave is the only correct answer.
