Dorner Manufacturing’s new 2300 and 5300 Series conveyors, part of the DustPruf family of conveyors, bring automation, flexibility and performance, plus the SmartSlot technology designed into the frame. 

The company says SmartSlot provides integration and add-on capabilities of a T-slot without the drawbacks of slots that collect contaminants or debris. 
 
As the name implies, the DustPruf 2300 and 5300 Series are essentially dust proof.

This is due to a streamlined frame design that can eliminate all catch points where particulates or debris can collect.

A common source of dust comes from corrugate or through the packaging process. Also, many granular or fine particle products often become airborne only to fall back onto the conveyors during manufacturing.
