Hanover, June 30, 2021 – Metal-detectable conveyor belt provides extra hygiene in production processes
In order to guarantee the stringent quality demands in food production and processing, the sensitive products must contain no foreign bodies. In addition to meeting hygiene standards, detecting contaminants in food is another important factor. Foreign bodies can enter the production chain in all sorts of ways. In isolated cases, for example due to delamination, or rupture, particles of the conveyor belt used during production can also get into the food. Which is why identifying potential foreign bodies is important for compliance with HACCP concepts.
Forbo Movement Systems has developed the new Transilon E 4/H U8/U8 MT/MT-NA MD blue FDA (art. no. 906825) belt type for this purpose. The special belt design combines the low elongation of conventional Siegling Transilon fabric designs with the easy-to-clean design of homogeneous conveyor belts.
