Food conveyor belts are used in the process of food transportation. Food belts are non-toxic and tasteless and meet food safety standards. In the process of conveying food, food conveyor belts are often used.
To maintain the life of food conveyor belts, what problems should food processing conveyors pay attention to during the work process?
1. The feeding direction should be consistent with the running direction of the tape. In order to reduce the impact on the tape during blanking, the chute is used to reduce the blanking interval; the tape receiving section should shorten the distance between the idlers and use buffer idlers for leakage, and the belt should use a soft and moderate baffle to avoid the baffle being too large. , scratch the belt surface of the conveyor belt.
2. White food grade conveyor belts of different models and specifications should not be used together, and their joints should be glued.
3. The running speed of the conveyor belt should not exceed 2.5m/s. The materials with large agglomeration and large wear and tear should be installed at a low speed as far as possible.
So what are the characteristics of PU food conveyor belts?
1. It has strong tear resistance, good elasticity, and has a certain impact resistance, which can generally be used under complex conditions.
2. It has good water resistance and can commonly be used in cold and humid conditions without influencing the conveyor belt. The conveyor belt can still be used normally and does not affect the service cycle.
3. It has better acid and alkali and high-temperature resistance than other conveyor belts. Although the price is relatively high, polyester conveyor belts will be more economical in the long run.
4. Compared with conveyor belts commonly used in the food industry, polyester conveyor belts are thinner and lighter in weight. It has certain plasticity during use, which can improve the conveying capacity and reduce energy consumption. Moreover, the conveying radius can be optimized to meet the transportation requirements and meet the needs of low energy and high efficiency.
For the conveyor for the food industry, everyone needs to understand it well so that the conveyor belt can be well used and the work efficiency can be well developed.
