Hanover, August 10, 2017 – New elastic conveyor belt with superior chemical resistance to grease, oils and aggressive cleaning agents
The new highly elastic UU 20U-9 GSTR/FSTR black/blue HACCP FDA Extremultus belt from Forbo Movement Systems was developed especially for use as a check-weigher belt and has proved a reliable component on key manufacturers’ check-weigher systems. The urethane belt stands out for its special product design with excellent resistance to grease, oil and hydrolysis and of course meets the requirements specified in EU and FDA regulations.
Due to its elasticity and resulting tracking capabilities, the conveyor belt can be used for a diverse range of conveying and processing steps in the food or packaging industries, in particular where very short center distances apply. It’s also encountered in slicers, labelling machines and used as a machine tape. The new belt can withstand temperatures up to 60°C and is antistatic.
The UU 20U-9 GSTR/FSTR black/blue HACCP FDA can even be utilized without any limitations on UV-C sterilization equipment and therefore actively supports customers’ HACCP concepts.
