Food grade belts for pristine hygiene applications

First Quarter 2020 Shaft power components

Ammeraal Beltech’s Rapplon folder gluer belts, which meet FDA and EC standards for contact with dry foodstuffs, form part of BMG’s extensive range of food grade belts for pristine hygiene applications.

“Rapplon folder gluer belts are now fitted with abrasion-resistant, non-glazing food grade covers for safe use in food, liquid and pharmaceutical packaging industries,” explains business unit manager, Ryan Forsyth. “There are many applications in the food processing sector, where standard conveyor belts cannot be used. It is critical in modern food processes that only high quality coating materials suitable for direct contact with foodstuffs are used to ensure hygienic and safe processing and efficient logistics.”

The new construction of Rapplon Food Grade folder gluer belts ensure reduced energy consumption and also offer extended service life and fewer maintenance stops. They fit most folder gluer machines, and provide a firm grip on all types of board for accurate carton blank movement during folding, gluing and packing production.

This range is available in QuickSplice and Classic designs. The QuickSplice design offers lower noise pollution and reduced energy consumption of up to 14%. This system ensures safe and easy belt tracking, even at speeds of up to 700 m/min. QuickSplice belts, which are suitable for running in both directions, are perfectly aligned with a quick finger splice for fast belt replacement.

The Classic design has high edge stability to prevent the edge of the belt from fraying and can be safely used in applications up to 80°C.
