ELASTIC MONOLITHIC CONVEYOR BELTS

BEHAbelt offers a comprehensive portfolio of monolithic elastic conveyor belts and also slip-free AT5 conveyor belts for various industrial applications. Due to the steadily growing automation of industrial production processes and processing machines, new challenges are constantly arising. Only when all machine components keep pace with your product characteristics will real progress be made in terms of efficiency, capacity and safety. BEHAbelt’s conveyor belts and belting are purely monolithic; i.e. they are made entirely of polyurethane and do not require a fabric insert.

Thus, these belts allow for service life improvements and significantly minimize the risks in terms of food contamination that can occur due to stock separation or fraying.

SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE CONVEYOR BELTS

MICROclean | unique surface finish

MICROclean offers simplified belt cleaning thanks to the wave-shaped surface design. This makes it easier to remove product residues.
In addition, MICROclean ensures improved product release, which in particular simplifies the transfer of the product to the next transport section.

2-component design

The manufacturing option with two components opens up a wide range of possibilities for combining different hardnesses and structures in one conveyor belt. As a result, we are able to perfect your machine design as a development partner.
For example, in belt design for incline conveyors. the transport side can have more grip, but the running side can have good sliding properties.

UV-C resistance

To support regular cleaning, more and more conveyor systems are being equipped with UV-C lamps. This is used for better control of germ counts on food contact surfaces even during the production process. This type of irradiation leads to brittleness and discoloration of the belt surface in the absence of protection. With the addition of a
UV-C protection into our raw materials, we guarantee a longer service life and safety under such application conditions.

Antistatic discharge

For particularly sensitive process sections with electronic measuring and control units such as check weighers (online weighing processes) or conveyor sections with electronic components, belts with antistatic dissipative properties are required to prevent malfunctions or measuring errors.
Please contact us, we will be pleased to check the possibilities of equipping your belt with an antistatic dissipative function, so that your process is optimally protected.

Advantages of BEHAbelt conveyor belts

Product design

  • No risk of contamination due to exposed fabric or mechanical damage to belt edges
  • Hygiene and support of your HACCP concept
  • Excellent cleanability
  • Hydrolysis and microbe resistance
  • Additional homogeneous properties; e.g. metal and X-ray detectable, UV-C resistance, antistatic discharge

Processing

  • Elasticity allows easy on-site butt welding
  • Softer belt types can be installed by means of quick tensioners
  • Butt welding is possible with simple equipment and ensures that no loss of structure or homogeneity or elasticity occurs in the weld area
  • Accessories such as corrugated edges, cleats, V-guides and other profiles can be welded on excellently

Examples of conveyor belt applications

Elastic monolithic belts are particularly suitable for many applications in the conveying of unpackaged food products. In addition, the product structure and properties open up interesting application possibilities far beyond this.

Industries

  • Food (meat, cheese, fish, poultry, fruit/vegetables, confectionery and bakery products)
  • Packaging (food and non-food)
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Intralogistics and material handling

Process descriptions

  • General transport
  • Separating or accelerating
  • Weighing, sorting and portioning
  • Loading and cutting
  • Checking (metal detectors)

REQUIREMENTS AND SOLUTIONS WITH CONVEYOR BELTS

Just as versatile as the possible applications and production variants for conveyor belts are the special requirements in the individual industrial sectors, processing procedures and machines.
Some important criteria; and which solutions BEHAbelt offers for them, are summarised in the following table.

Conveyor belts in the food industry
REQUIREMENT SOLUTION / FEATURES
Reliable product conveying, waste reduction The specific selection of the PU hardness grade and conveyor belt surface structure enable optimum matching to the transported goods in terms of grip and release properties.
Food safety

Our elastic food conveyor belts are made exclusively from FDA/EC-compliant materials. For the demanding requirements in the food industry, we equip our belts with properties such as hydrolysis or UV-C resistance, metal detectable, antistatic or with the unique MICROclean surface finish.

The monolithic product structure and the use of FDA/EC approved raw materials support safety and HACCP in food production.

Cleanability and durability Wear-resistant, hydrolysis-resistant raw materials guarantee a long service life, even when the belts are in use in wet or humid environments, as well as being cleaned regularly.
Conveyor belts in the packaging industry
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTION / FEATURES
Precise positioning or picking-up of the goods to be conveyed on the belt, even at higher speeds The choice of different surface structures enables a targeted coordination of the coefficient of friction and optimum adhesion on the conveyor belt. At the same time, the belt structure ensures small deflections and thus gentle product transfer.
Use of belts in the pharmaceutical industry
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTION / FEATURES
Ensuring high process safety and hygiene standards Compliance with the highest hygiene standards is guaranteed by FDA / EC-approved and easy-to-clean materials.
Conveyor belts in intralogistics
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTION / FEATURES
Durability and reliability Wear-resistant raw materials, antistatic designs and a targeted selection of the conveyor belt design are the basis for reliability and longevity in the conveyor system.
Material handling
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTION / FEATURES
Durability, reliability and careful handling of transport goods BEHAbelt has many years of experience and trained application consultants who work with the customer to select the optimum combination of conveyor belt material and design.
Use of belts across industries
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTION / FEATURES
Avoid downtimes The elastic monolithic conveyor belts from BEHAbelt can either be prefabricated or installed on site, quickly and easily.
This reduces downtime and installation times to an absolute minimum.
Efficiency and process reliability Carefully selected and designed conveyor belts, made of wear-resistant, high-quality materials, guarantee reliable, low-maintenance performance in your plant and thus reduce your TCO’s (Total Cost of Ownership).
Optimised system design Elastic belts are very easy to install. Complicated tensioning devices can be dispensed with in many cases.

Shore 95A 35…80 mm
General belt hardness choice based on center design
Shore 72A / 80A / 85A max. 3 m
Shore 95A 3…10 m
  • On conveyors with fixed center distance between the pulleys, belts with lower shore hardness can be installed manually..
  • Harder materials require tension device to install the belts
  • Attention: The actual pre-tension may require a verification of the maximal possible load on the belt and the admissible bearing load to avoid overstress on pulleys and bearings.

Please contact us for the optimal belt design.

Weldable accessories for conveyor belts

The areas of application for conveyor belts made of polyurethane are immensely varied. Depending on the industry, the products to be conveyed and the specific system design, conveyor belts not only have to be cut to length and width, but also assembled with cleats, sidewalls or tracking elements. BEHAbelt offers a wide range of flat belt accessories for this purpose, homogeneously extruded from PU in different shore hardnesses.

Our flat belt accessories are made of the same raw materials as the conveyor belts to ensure the best possible weldability and a long service life in the application. Of course, BEHAbelt flat belt accessories are also available FDA/EC/USDA compliant on request and with special properties such as detectable, UV-C resistant or hydrolysis resistant.
