Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co
can supply pillow belts / cushion cleats for soft landing of potatoes, fruit and vegetables.
Conveyor belts with pillow / cushion cleats are a good solution to protect products against damage and blemishes, and reduce costly wastage to a minimum.
Pillow belts are frequently applied in weighing and packaging systems for potatoes, fruit and vegetables. After weighing, products land onto the conveyor belt from the limited drop height.
Pillow / cushion cleats are fitted on the belt to prevent these delicate products from being damaged, resulting in higher value products and less product loss.
Apart from the traditional green pillow belts, Rydell can supply belts in colours pale blue, which comply with FDA and EU guidelines for food contact.
Owing to its high level of acid resistance the pale blue belt is especially suitable for acidic crops, including many types of fruit.
The blue belt has good oil resistance and is very well suited for non-acidic products such as potatoes and many types of vegetables. The height and dimensions of the pillow / cushion cleat, their centre-to centre distance and optional guiding profiles and other accessories are fabricated according to application requirements.
