Ammeraal Beltech will exhibit its Rapplon food-grade elastic belts for the food industry at IBA 2015, 12-17 September in Munich, Germany.
The elastic polyurethane belts are made from homogeneous plastic (no fabric fraying risk) and are easy to clean.
They meet food grade standards EC 1935/2004, EU 10/2011 and FDA.
The Rapplon UU N16 SP5 Q FG belt is designed for small conveyors such as finger spreaders.
The combination of polyurethane and a profiled conveying side make the belts ideal for carrying a wide range of fresh sticky dough.
Industry feedback says the belts deliver balanced, optimal belt tension and good dough release properties, even with several different types of dough on the production line, coupled with good lateral flexibility and the additional special Rapplon finger splice.
The belts do not require an extensive take-up system with their wide elongation range.
Their applied tension levels at installation remain stable over their entire service life, so they are maintenance-free.
The Rapplon QuickSplice joining system delivers accurate and effective splicing, so that food production personnel can themselves easily and quickly remove and replace belts without the need for outside fitters.
As a result, production downtime is reduced and belt life is extended.
