Ammeraal Beltech Modular offers a wide range of modular belts for the fruit and vegetable industry. Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co can supply these modular belts locally for citrus, tomato, bean and potato plants, among others.
Furthermore, Rydell also supplies reinforced plastic modular belts to blanchers and cookers. The company supplies the Uni OPB and Uni Light EP series with reinforced stainless steel links and pins.
The Uni Flex SNB-L with O-tabs has been used in the Fruit industry for sideflexing transport of filled crates of fruit.
Uni Flex SNB maintains product orientation flawlessly through curves, eliminating the need for deadplate-transfers and extra drives. O-tabs at each edge retain the belt properly throughout curves.
Straight self-lubricating acetal components and a low contact area ensures smooth crate travel and low friction. The hinge design allows the belt to spread out at the edges with only small openings, eliminating catch points typically found in traditional chain conveyors.
The Uni L-SNB has been used successfully in the tomato industry. The Uni L-SNB has an open easy-to-clean design. Due to its strength it can also withstand extreme conditions in different applications.

- blanchers / cookers
- cooling conveyors
- washers tanks
- incline / decline conveyors
- cut belt conveyors
