More Hygiene with New Conveyor Belt Solutions

Hanover, February 2008. Forbo Siegling's new processes and products promise better hygiene in the packaging and food industry. The company will be presenting its latest edge sealing solutions for conveyor belts for the first time to the public at the Interpack trade fair in Düsseldorf (April 24 – 30, hall 4/stand G35).

Conveyor belt edges are reliably sealed using the new "Smartseal" and "Hotseal" processes. The sealing prevents oil, grease, moisture and bacteria from penetrating the conveyor belt from the sides, or pieces of fluff from the tension member protruding and entering the food conveyed. When counter-bending occurs frequently, both sealing processes are considerably more reliable than the previously common welded profiles. As a result, they ensure better levels of hygiene in nearly all areas of the food industry.

The "Smartseal" process (patent pending) needs no further sealing materials. Sealing is carried out without preparing the belt edge and even thin single-ply belts can be sealed. Thanks to the extreme suppleness of the sealing, belts sealed with "Smartseal" operate perfectly over knife edges. The economical benefits of the process are excellent in short conveyor belts. For belts longer than 25 metres on the other hand, the equally new "Hotseal" belt sealing process is the ideal choice, as it is applied in one continuous process. There is practically no restriction in conveyor belt width in either of the two processes.

In addition to these two processes for belt edge sealing, Forbo Siegling will also be presenting two new product lines at the Interpack. Both are designed to reduce the risk of damaged belt edges from the very start with an intelligent fabric structure, so that no belt edge sealing is required.

Forbo Siegling will also be presenting its entire portfolio of power transmission and conveyor belt products for manufacturers of packaging machines and the packaging industry. This range includes for example Siegling Transilon conveyor and processing belts, Siegling Extremultus flat belts and machine tapes, Siegling Prolink plastic modular belts, as well as versatile folder and carrier belts. Better hygiene in the packaging and food industry – with Forbo Siegling at the Interpack (April 24 - 30, hall 4/stand G35).
