New to engineering components supplier Bearing Man Group’s (BMG’s) range of belting certified for safe food handling, is the KleenEdge non-fray series.
It is developed by conveyer belt solutions provider Ammeraal Beltech to “minimise the problems of belt-edge fray and associated contamination issues, ensuring absolute hygiene in food processing”, explains BMG Light Materials Handling division business unit manager Ryan Forsyth.
BMG’s Light Materials Handling division supplies and supports a comprehensive range of belting products suitable for the food processing, bottling and packaging sectors.
Easy-to-clean KleenEdge belting has been designed with a high-strength, low-stretch fabric reinforcement, which is held securely in a tough, non-cracking thermoplastic structure. This durable assembly prevents the risk of contamination, belt shrinkage and distortion that may occur from belt-edge wear during use.
KleenEdge is suitable for use in arduous applications, particularly where knife edges are present. This belting can also be safely used on roller supports, slider bed and troughed applications.
Typical applications include high-risk food processing areas, like bakeries and confectioneries; meat, poultry and fish processing; the dairy industry; and fruit and vegetable processing.
“Another popular product in the local food handling sector is BMG’s new Ammeraal Beltech Pop-up flight solution for inclined food conveyors, which has been designed to reduce waste, enhance efficiency and minimise costs.”
BMG’s Ammeraal Beltech Pop-up flights for inclined food conveyors, are integrated into modular belt systems, to prevent product residues left on the belt and they also minimise droppage onto the floor. These mechanical Pop-up flights – with an automatic rise and fall on the belt – operate in conjunction with discharge belt-scrapers, without the need for secondary drive motors or complex controls.
These Pop-up flights, which are suitable for direct food contact, improve efficiency, hygiene levels and profitability in various food processing and packing applications and are especially suitable for products that tend to stick to conveyor belts.
Applications include fresh and frozen meat and fish processing, the washing and packing of salads and green leaf vegetables, confectionery packing, and pasta and rice processing.
All components of this system are easily mounted and removed, with effortless cleaning and maintenance procedures.
