Hanover, May 2022 – A New Transtex Product with Potential for Accumulation Applications
Forbo Movement Systems is expanding its portfolio of robust and wear-resistant Siegling Transtex products with the addition of its new PVC120 OFR HMxF-NA blue FDA belt type (art. no. 908933). This new product is ideal for agricultural applications, e.g. when harvesting fruit and vegetables. The PVC used in the belt stands apart for its excellent resistance to abrasion and oil and grease. Therefore, it’s an outstanding choice for primary processing in the agricultural sector of oily and greasy products (like nuts).
The PVC 120 OFR HMxF-NA blue FDA is perfect for bulk goods on horizonal and troughed conveyors because of its laterally soft fabric design. The robust Transtex belt is preferably used with idler rollers and can be supplied with flights and side walls on request. The matte surface pattern of the new, blue belt type means it can also used for accumulation applications. The unbrushed underside boosts the hygiene concept due to its easy-to-clean characteristics.
The belt complies with FDA21 CFR requirements for contact with unpackaged foodstuffs
