Guide Rail and Components
Duravar® Guide Rail Difference
Artek utilizes a specialized crimping process to lock the Duravar® UHMW-PE Guide Rail Profile Shape permanently in place to create a solid Guide Rail that eliminates the potential for hidden contamination.
Artek’s specialized crimping process also Guide Rail locks the Duravar® UHMW-PE Guide Rail Shape tightly in place to reduce the linear shrinkage problems experienced by competitive UHMW Profile Shapes in the Stainless Steel Sheaves. This specialized crimping process also creates a stronger lock between the Duravar® UHMW-PE Guide Rail Shape and the 14 Gauge Stainless Steel Sheave, minimizing the gaping and perking that occurs on competitive rails when they are formed into curved shapes.
The Duravar® UHMW-PE Profile Shape and 304 Stainless Steel Sheave is married solidly together so that liquids or material fines cannot penetrate beyond the Guide Rails mating surfaces. Artek’s Duravar® Guide Rails meet the requirements set forth by FDA for food contact applications, USDA Standards for handling meat and poultry, and 3-A Sanitary Standards for contact surfaces of dairy equipment.
This solid combination of Duravar® UHMW-PE and 304 Stainless Steel creates strength and rigidity while featuring Low Coefficient of Friction to minimize rail drag on rapid moving products. It also features Non-Absorbant Properties to eliminate rust and corrosion while promoting easy-to-maintain and clean, sanitary surfaces.
Artek offers several Guide Rail Accessories to complete the package. Artek Clamps, Clips, and Splicers are now available in a one-stop-shop.
