Beacon, Inc. has been manufacturing Bacon Hangers for over 55 years, and during that time we have been asked to design special hangers for unique applications or to solve a specific handling problem. The following photos show a few examples of special Combs that we have manufactured. These hangers were designed to work with various types of racks, trees, trucks, serpentine, and conveyor systems.
INNOVATION = PATENTS
Patented, employee friendly Bacon Hangers have been designed to provide longer usable life and reduce the potential of injury, like carpel tunnel syndrome, to the user when used with your mechanical device to remove the Bacon Hanger from the bellies.
Relative to longer usable life, they last longer, the statement(s) within the patent(s) to support this claim is as follows:
"having all weld positions (welds) under compression while under the stress caused by
the weight of the belly and/or the stress caused by the engagement of a mechanical device used to extract the hanger prongs from the processed belly."
The welds on every style of Bacon Hanger we manufacture are under compression.
