IPS Slats are manufactured from the highest quality High Density Polyethylene, a high impact, high strength plastic. This material complies with FDA regulation CFR 177.1630 for use in contact with food. Thanks to its high malleability, rigid strength, and corrosion resistance. HDPE is the perfect combination of strength, cost-efficiency, and environmental friendliness.
10 STEPS TO EXTEND YOUR SLATS LIFE
- Handle slats with the same care that you would for any other precision component.
- Avoid dropping, hitting or banging the Slats against hard objects. (Dents or burrs may affect the tablet handling characteristics)
- Do not use sharp metal objects to scrape, clean or remove broken product. The machined surfaces could become damaged affecting the slat performance.
- Use care when installing slats on the filler. Do not force slats on to the carrying pins. The slats should fit snuggly, but not tightly.
- Install tongue and groove slats with the tongue facing you. All slats are marked with the letter ‘L’ on the left side for proper orientation.
- Remove slats carefully so as not to damage the carrying pin holes.
- Store slats on a flat smooth surface taking care not to damage the machined surfaces.
- Store slats in a temperature controlled environment about 70°F, ±5°F. When stacking, we recommend using cardboard or Kraft paper between layers.
- We recommend cleaning the slats in an IPS Slat Washer. Alternately a soft nonabrasive brush and warm soapy water of less than 110°F. Alcohol may also be used.
- Repeated exposure to high temperatures, followed by cooling will cause slats to acquire a permanent set, shrinking them to where they will no longer fit on to the chain carrying pins.
IMPORTANT: MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE FOR WASHING/DRYING SLATS SHOULD NOT EXCEED 120°F. WASH NEW SLATS BEFORE FIRST USE!
