Levelling feet for hygiene sensitive applications

Louise Smyth

WDS has introduced a new range of white based levelling feet with nickel-plated or stainless steel nuts and anti-microbial plastic bases, meeting the needs of conveyor systems and machinery used in food processing applications and other hygienic environments.

The nickel-plated or stainless steel nuts resist corrosion even under high pressure or chemical wash-down conditions, while the smooth white polymer bases are free from nooks and crannies where dirt and debris can accumulate. The bases are also infused with an anti-microbial agent that is effective against the growth of bacteria.

Meeting the needs of food processing machinery, and equipment that needs levelling on uneven surfaces, these new adjustable feet are available with round or extended bases, in rest-on or bolt-down versions. The white bases are available in diameters of 40mm, 60mm, and 80mm, with nut sizes from M8 to M20 and lengths of 50mm, 100mm, 150mm, and 200mm. The new levelling feet support safe working loads from 150kg to 400kg.

These new white anti-microbial levelling feet extend the broad range of levelling feet, adjustable machine feet and mounts available from WDS. They allow the user to ensure the application or machine is always mounted correctly and levelled on uneven surfaces. WDS plans to introduce a complementary range of blue levelling feet to complete the range in the next couple of months. The company’s range also includes anti-vibration feet in numerous styles and materials.

All ‘foot’ products are indexed on the WDS website, with full technical details including dimensions, tolerances, photographs, technical drawings and 2Dand 3D models, the latter being free to down load by registered users.
