Both companies have made food production hygiene a cornerstone of their business. In focusing on this area, the companies have developed a highly innovative protective system to prevent belt edges from soiling and fraying. Bacteria are also prevented from penetrating which is an important step in assuring HACCP compliance.
Belt edges of conveyor belts are normally finished with cut edges and are not protected against external influence. One of Ammeraal Beltech's belt edge protection concepts is AMSEAL. The Amseal edge protection completely seals the belt edge on all sides with a thermoplastic strip.
Belts with Amseal belt edges are protected against all kind of external influences and circumstances. Due to this highly innovative protective system, these belts meet the hygienist standards.
A wide range of Amseal belts are available as standard: Nonex (PVC), Ropanyl (TPU), Peflex (PE) and Amtel (TPE). Colors include USDA-approved white and light blue.
Benefits of Amseal belt edges include:
- totally encapsulated belt
- avoid fibre contamination
- long belt life
- low running costs
- improved hygiene
- easy to clean
- less cross contamination
- eliminates fabric contamination
- highly durable design/high strength
- highly wear resistant
- one, two or three ply belts
- suitable for all cover types
- possible with many profiles
- assists with implementation of HACCP
- meets FDA/EU requirements; and
- USDA/3A approved.
