Hanover, May 09, 2018 – New Polyurethane Belt Actively Supports HACCP Systems.
As everyone in the food industry knows, HACCP is short for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points. It’s a system for planning and controlling quality assurance in all production processes associated with food – from manufacture, distribution or storage.
Forbo Movement Systems is launching another processing belt in the shape of its new E 3/1 U0/U2 HACCP-FF-PS blue FDA (art. no. 906854) polyurethane type in sky blue (RAL 5015) that actively supports customers’ HACCP concepts.
The belt edges practically don’t fray at all thanks to the special product design with laterally stiff, pre-shrunk Frayfree fabric and an optimized fiber length. As a result, the new Transilon conveyor belt is much more reliable and significantly boosts hygiene.
The belt’s ideal for tracking over tight return radii or knife edges and can be used in all sorts of areas: For example, in all food applications where a single-ply blue belt with a smooth surface and good grip is required. It’s already been used in the bakery, chocolate and packaging industries, as well as in weighing systems. Because it lies so flat and due to its specific coefficient of thermal conductivity, the polyurethane belt is an excellent choice as a cooling line belt.
Other potential applications are in the textiles industry (nonwovens, diaper production, industrial laundry engineering) or the paper and print industry (post-press, packaging industry, paper production/tissues and post).
