Hanover July 07, 2020 – New robust belt for very low temperatures.
When exceptionally cold temperatures prevail – below or around zero degrees Celsius – conventional PVC conveyor belts can cause problems because the belt material can harden under these conditions. Which is why Forbo Movement Systems’ new polyvinyl chloride PVK125 LT LRxFS-NA black FR Transtex belt was custom-developed for applications where exceptionally low temperatures of down to negative 40 degrees Celsius apply, for example in refrigerated warehouses or during extreme winter temperatures.
The new belt is flame retardant and its top face has exceptional grip. The mechanical fastener from the PVK series, which goes with it, is tearproof as well as incision- and puncture-resistant, making it a perfect match with the robust Siegling Transtex conveyor belt.
Ideal applications for the new product are general conveying with a focus on horizontal or inclined conveying of, for instance, unit goods/containers, moving parcels in the logistics industry or as metering belts in the tire industry.
