Companies processing meat and seafood, or producing anything from frozen pizzas to ice cream to chocolates, may seem dissimilar at face value, but share many similarities in their facilities, and on their production lines, in particular. These companies all require customized food handling processes and to some degree, automated processing of their goods on some of the most advanced and diverse conveyor automation technologies available. To that end, food processing plants, regardless of the end product, all benefit from stainless steel belts and conveyor belt systems from Belt Technologies.
More durable, clean and accurate than fabric, rubber or PVC belts, metal belts help a wide range of industries, and work well in the most demanding production and environments. Particularly In the food manufacturing and processing industry, where cleanliness and hygiene are paramount, most equipment is already made with stainless steel. So why not the belt?
Benefits of Steel Belts
Versatile, durable, and easy to design and manufacture, metal belts lend themselves to any food processing system and deliver consistent, exceptional results. They offer superior thermal conductivity and superior cleanliness and for these reasons and more, stainless steel belts are the preferred choice for the cooking, freezing and handling of edible products, and the handling of raw materials.
