Pallet Offers Hygienic Advantages, X-Ray Detection

Enhanced RackoCell® pallet features new X-ray compatibility option


ORBIS Corporation has enhanced its RackoCell 40 x 48-inch pallet, a pallet engineered specifically to meet the needs of the food manufacturing/ingredients, meat and poultry, and pharmaceutical industries where hygiene, durability and ease of washing are demanded.

The RackoCell is molded in one piece from polypropylene copolymer to offer enhanced stiffness and edge-racking performance up to 2,200 pounds, and features flow-through design that washes and drains quickly for high sanitation. And smooth, all-plastic construction protects the product without nails, splinters or rust.

>Now, the RackoCell pallet also features an option available specifically for food plants that use X-ray detection to inspect loads prior to shipping.

The new RackoCell option is molded with a unique proprietary blend of detectable materials, and is X-ray compatible. In the case that any piece of the pallet comes loose due to aggressive handling, it will be easily detectable. This allows plants to use fully hygienic pallets throughout their internal processing facility and when loads are off-loaded to outbound shipping pallets, they can then be sent through X-ray machines for inspection.

“We are excited to offer a groundbreaking X-ray compatible solution to our customers who are looking for a highly hygienic pallet to ensure food safety,” said Curt Most, Marketing Manager – Pallets, ORBIS Corporation.

Additional benefits include:

  • Consistent weight for accurate transportation costs
  • Availability in FDA approved material
  • Reduced packaging waste, saving cost by eliminating wood pallet disposal
  • Four-way forklift and two-way pallet jack entry
  • Improved workplace safety with smooth design and stable stackability
  • Compatibility with conveyors and most automated operations
  • Concentrated ribbing through the top deck and perimeter, angled leg openings, and thick outer leg wall sections for impact resistance and durability.
