Introducing the Pharma-Kleen™ Conveyor
Tri-Mach Group is proud to announce the launch of our newest product innovation: The PharmaKleen™ Conveyor System. This cutting-edge system was created from decades of experience operating within the pharmaceutical industry and is the solution to your medical processing headaches.
We know that the needs of the pharmaceutical industry are complex, and the safety of the end-consumers is of utmost importance. With the pharmaceutical industry now having more pressure than ever to keep up with demand, processors are having to manufacture products at a rapid
rate while still maintaining safety procedures and abiding by regulations. This is where the Pharma-Kleen™ excels.
Customizable to meet your application needs, the Pharma-Kleen™ line is designed to be the very best in sanitation and efficiency. Constructed fully from 316 Stainless Steel, these conveyors can withstand the prolonged use of harsh chemicals without jeopardizing the durability or design. The removable UHMW side guards and tool-less design make them easy to clean and disassemble, minimizing production disruption time for a more economical sanitizing process. Wipedowns or deep-clean wash downs can be performed within minutes, leaving
more time for you to process product.
A few of the features include an angled frame design, hygienic levelers with no exposed threads, #4 finish to remove micro bacteria harborage points, and more. Each of these elements works together to put the Pharma-Kleen™ Conveyor in the top of its league for sanitary design. The conveyor’s dimensions and layout are completely customizable depending on your application, as well as your choice from any of our FDA-approved seamless belting materials.
During the manufacturing of the Pharma-Kleen™, we take every precaution possible to ensure zero contamination. All stainless steel parts
are laser cut, deburred, bead-blasted, and finished with electro weld cleaning, all within our 100% non-ferrous facility. These preventative measures ensure the longevity of your system by mitigating the risk of foreign material contaminants and promoting durability.
With North America’s pharmaceutical industry growing exponentially and the need for new and improved pharmaceutical systems always expanding, now is the time to improve or upgrade your operation. Make sure you are using the very best pharmaceutical processing equipment for your operation, to deliver the safest possible product for your end customers.

Which Stainless Steel is Right for You?
Stainless steel is commonplace in sanitary processing environments like the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries, often being used for conveyors, tanks, platforms, and structures along the processing line. While stainless steel globally holds true to its strength, washability, and
formability, not all grades are created equal. A solid multi-purpose stainless, 304 is often found in meat, poultry and bakery processing lines and packing lines. Its blend of nickel and chromium makes it very strong with good resistance to heat and corrosion.
Environments that call for prolonged high heat and harsher chemicals often gravitate towards 304’s older brother 316. While they may look the same at a glance, 316 stainless steel is made with a higher percentage of nickel with added molybdenum to increase its resistance to corrosion.
The heat and chemicals from sanitization and processing found in the dairy, seafood, and pharmaceutical industries make the upgraded 316 stainless steel the common choice to guarantee longevity. With the added #4 finish, and optional electropolish, the then mirror-like stainless steel is free
from micro-grooves where tiny bacteria and microbes can hide.
Not only is stainless steel the ideal choice for conveyors and structures, it is also the ideal product for sanitary process piping. Maintaining its nonferrous qualities, stainless steel process piping is perfect for moving product, waste, liquids, or cleaning chemicals.
As a fully non-ferrous facility dedicated to creating stainless steel products for sanitary environments, you can trust Tri-Mach Group to be your experts in finding what works for you.

Visual Inspection Booths: Catch Every Imperfection
The most important stage of pharmaceutical processing is the inspection. Before any product leaves your facility, we know that it is essential to ensure that it is free from any foreign contaminants and is safe for the consumer to ingest or inject. Products that are metal-free or housed in dense casings can’t be read by an x-ray or metal detector making visual inspection booths an effective solution for catching imperfections or contaminants.
Tri-Mach Group’s inspection booths use tinted Lexan walls and a pitched conveyor to allow operators to see the product clearly. As product travels
along the belt and through the booth, the 200 lux back-lighting highlights the product
making any foreign particles or contaminants clearly visible. From there, inspection operators can press the reject button, diverting the flawed product off the line. This process is designed to be adaptable to any speed your operation requires to keep up with demand. Tri-Mach Group’s inspection booths are the best way to guarantee customer-safe products and are well-suited to products housed in clear vessels, including IV bags, capsules, vials, containers, syringes, and more.
