Retort Drones

The Allpax AIR DRONE is a device that was designed to accomplish basket transport into, and out of, the retort safely and efficiently. The machine is a flat-profile robot that runs on rails and travels underneath the baskets. The robot's heavy-duty inflatable tubes lift the baskets off of the conveyors, then drives the product load into the retort, then deflates to deposit the baskets for retort processing. Retrieval works in the reverse manner.

No moving parts in the retort! The Allpax AIR DRONE eliminates the need for internal conveyors and virtually ALL moving parts (even rollers) inside the retort!
