What Are The Materials Of Food Conveyor Belts

As an important carrying tool in food production and processing, food conveyor belts are important to food safety in food production. Different processes, environments, different design requirements in food production, and different requirements for food conveyor belts. What materials are conveyor belts made of?

The material that accounts for the largest proportion of food conveyor belts is PU material. Polyurethane is characterized by excellent wear resistance, excellent ozone resistance, high hardness, high strength, good elasticity, low-temperature resistance, and good resistance to oil, chemicals, and chemicals. Environmental performance. Such material characteristics make PU conveyor belts oil, corrosion, cold, and cut-resistant. It is a conveyor belt product with high strength, good flexibility, lightweight, and wear resistance.

Compared with PU conveyor belts, PE conveyor belts, which are more commonly used in the tobacco industry, are made of polyethylene polymer materials. Polyethylene is tasteless, odorless, and non-toxic. PE conveyor belts have high tensile strength, good flexibility, and lightness. They are oil-resistant, non-toxic, hygienic, and easy to clean. The PE conveyor belt complies with the US FDA food hygiene standards. The conveyor belt has good wear resistance and physical aging resistance and is a durable conveyor belt product.

In food processing, we will encounter some high-temperature-resistant sections, and the conveyor belt needs to have a specific high-temperature resistance, so silicone belts and Teflon products have become one of the choices in these sections.

The silicone belt is made of high-temperature resistant material silicone and polyester cloth. Organic silica gel silica gel has high thermal stability, and the chemical bonds of the molecules will not break or decompose at high temperatures. Organic silica gel is resistant to high temperatures and low temperatures and can be used in a wide temperature range. Due to silicone’s physical and chemical properties, silicone conveyor belts have good heat and cold resistance and good weather resistance. It is one of the special application choices in the food industry.

Teflon conveyor belt is a product used in many baking and packaging sections. Teflon is also called polytetrafluoroethylene conveyor belt, Teflon conveyor belt, etc. PTFE is called the “King of Plastics,” and the raw material can be used for a long time at -180-260℃. The surface friction coefficient is extremely low, so the Teflon conveyor belt is also an anti-stick material.

The above are the commonly used materials for our food conveyor belts. If you are looking for food conveyor belts, please get in touch with the SCplus Belt sales team and we will provide you with the best solution.
