APPLICATIONS FOR CONVEYOR BELTS

BEHAbelt aims to offer innovative solutions in high quality to customers. There is already a huge variety of conveyor belt categories and design variations available on the market. However, the increasing automation of industrial production processes and machines requires ongoing evolution. Only if all components and their features keep pace, real improvements in terms of efficiency, capacity and safety can be achieved.

This is where the new elastic monolithic conveyor belts by BEHAbelt deliver an important contribution. These products enable longevity improvements and minimize risks like layer delamination or edge fraying versus conventional coated conveyor belts with fabric carcasses.

INDUSTRIES AND APPLICATIONS

Elastic monolithic conveyor belts are especially beneficial for the various applications to convey unwrapped foodstuff.
Furthermore, this design and the special features are opening up interesting opportunities way beyond that.

Special features for conveyor belts

MICROclean
unique surface finish

MICROclean

MICROclean offers improved belt cleaning thanks to its wave-like surface. This makes it easier to remove product residues. In addition, MICROclean provides for improved product release, which especially simplifies the transfer of the product to the next transport section.

2C
2 hardness belt design

2C 2-components-design

The production with two components allows a wide range of ­possibilities to combine different belt hardnesses and structures. As a development partner, we are thus in a position to perfect your machine design. For example, with the belt design for inclined conveyors the ­transport side has more grip, but the running side has good gliding properties.

UV-C resistance

To support regular cleaning and keep bacteria counts on food contact surfaces under control, even during the production hours, more and more machines and conveyors are equipped with UV-C disinfection device. The UV-C rays that are emitted can attack unprotected synthetic materials, like conveyor belts. This results in brittleness and discoloration of surfaces, which bears a certain hygiene risk. Therefore, we provide UV-C protected belts to ­support longevity and food safety under such circumstances.

Antistatic discharge

antistatic discharge

Some sensible applications or process elements (like measure or control units) could be affected by ­electrical charge that is build up on conveyor belt surfaces. Therefore, we can provide products that are specially equipped with antistatic discharge features to ensure smooth and trouble free performance. Feel free to ask BEHAbelt, we will check if such products are ­suitable for your application.

REQUIREMENTS AND SOLUTIONS WITH CONVEYOR BELTS

As manifold as the design options and fabrication varieties for conveyor belts, as versatile are the special requirement in the various industries, processes and applications.
Some important criteria and applicable BEHAbelt solutions are summarized in the following charts.

Food
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTIONS / FEATURES
Reliable product conveying, waste reduction The specific selection of PU-Shore hardness and conveyor belt surface structures enable an optimal alignment with your goods in terms of grip, positioning and release properties.
Food safety Our elastic food conveyor belts are made of FDA/EC compliant materials. Especially for demanding applications in food processing, we can equip our belts with features like hydrolysis or UV-C resistance, detectable, antistatic or the unique MICROclean surface finish.
The monolithic product design and use of FDA/EC compliant materials support safety and HACCP in food processing.
Cleanability and longevity Wear resistant, durable and hydrolysis resistant raw materials guarantee longevity, even in a warm, wet and humid environment and if regular cleaning is applied.
Packaging
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTIONS / FEATURES
Precise positioning and grip of goods on belts, even at higher speed The choice of different surface structures enables a specific alignment between coefficient of friction, grip and release features of a conveyor belt. At the same time the selected belt design allows small pulleys, hence gentle transfer of goods.
Pharmacy
ANFORDERUNGEN SOLUTIONS / FEATURES
Ensure high process safety and hygiene conditions The conformance with utmost hygiene standards is ensured by FDA/EC compliant materials and belts that are easy to clean.
Logistics
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTIONS / FEATURES
Longevity and reliability Wear resistant raw materials, antistatic features and the selection of a specific conveyor belt design are the basis for longevity and reliability of our products in your conveyor system.
Material handling
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTIONS
Longevity, reliability and gentle handling of goods BEHAbelt has many years of experience and well trained application engineers, to define the optimal combination of conveyor belt material, design and special features for each individual customer.
Across all industries
REQUIREMENTS SOLUTIONS / FEATURES
Avoid downtime BEHAbelt elastic monolithic belts can be supplied tailor made and fabricated to the final dimension or quickly and easily installed onsite. This reduces downtime to an absolute minimum.
Efficiency and process safety Carefully selected and configured conveyor belts, made of durable, wear resistant materials, guarantee a reliable performance and minimal maintenance in your application, thus reduce your TCO’s (Total Cost of Ownership).
Optimized equipment design Elastic belts are extremely easy to install. Therefore, complicated tensioning device can be avoided in many cases, which enables a simpler and more user friendly conveyor design.

  • Softer belts allow a hand mounted possibility with fixed center to center machinery designs
  • Harder belts require a kind of take up or quick tensioning device (clean in place)
  • Attention: pretension forces might require a verification for max. allowed bearing forces or deformations of axes
