Cantrell Develops New Idler Turn for Overhead Conveyors

New overhead idler turns are durable, more hygienic and require fewer parts

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (Oct. 20, 2009) - Cantrell, a poultry processing equipment sales and service company based in Gainesville, Ga., has developed a new idler turn for overhead conveyors that is durable, hygienic and requires fewer parts.

The turns have very little surface area for debris to accumulate, making them more hygienic. The open design, which has fewer parts, makes the idler turn easier to clean and maintain.  The new design also eliminates the need for an idler shaft flange hub.

Cantrell’s new idler turn can replace any idler turn on an overhead conveyor system. The turn is not as heavy as most turns, making installation easier.

Cantrell leads the way in creating and supplying innovative solutions in the poultry industry to customers worldwide. With experienced and dedicated staff, the ultimate goal of Cantrell is to provide the best products, parts and service available to poultry processors around the globe.
