Belting products for food processing

Fourth Quarter 2019 Shaft power components

BMG supplies and supports a com-prehensive range of belting products suitable for the food processing, bottling and packaging sectors. New to its range of belting certified for safe food handling is the KleenEdge non-fray series, developed by Ammeraal Beltech to minimise the problems of belt-edge fray and associated contamination issues, ensuring absolute hygiene in food processing. Another popular product in the food handling sector is the new Ammeraal Beltech Pop-up flight solution for inclined food conveyors, which reduces waste, enhances efficiency and minimises costs.

Easy-to-clean KleenEdge belting has been designed with a high strength, low stretch fabric reinforcement, which is held securely in a tough, non-cracking thermoplastic structure. This durable assembly prevents the risk of contamination, belt shrinkage and distortion that may occur from belt-edge wear during use. The Pop-up flights for inclined food conveyors are integrated into modular belt systems to prevent product residues being left on the belt and they also minimise droppage onto the floor. They operate in conjunction with discharge belt-scrapers, without the need for secondary drive motors or complex controls. They are suitable for direct food contact, and improve efficiency and hygiene levels in various food processing and packing applications. They are especially suitable for products that stick to conveyor belts.

All products for food handling, bottling and packaging applications meet the highest conveying and packaging standards in terms of reliability and consistent quality and hygiene controls. BMG food grade belts comply with stringent EC and FDA requirements for pristine hygiene standards.
