Designed based on the advantages on similar products abroad, compact design and perfect workmanship. Materials in contact with humidity are resistant to different acids and are made from high performance Stainless Steel 316 in alkali acid, which is resistant to corrosion and meets hygiene requirements.
This pump is able to suction air or foam liquids.
This pump is widely used in industries with strict hygiene requirements, such as food, condiments, etc. It was designed with 2 synchronized rotors, which could transport low or high viscosity or granular liquids.
The pump can work under high pressure (22bar) when there is no front axis cover.
Some of the advantages when using this pump:
It is made from cross rods and a flat metallic strip. To the sides of the cross rods it has welded edges or knuckled edges. The belt specifications and the number or odd spaces determine the belt’s width. It can also be chosen from ca. 50-3500mm.
The honeycomb belt is directly driven by sprockets and can be used at a conveyor speed less than 1m/min-25m/min, which are considered normal speeds. Speeds over 25m/min are considered too high and can considerably affect the belt’s life. This type of belts are used in the production processes of food with temperatures from -30°C-400°C and many other industries.
The honeycomb belt needs minimal maintenance and its working life will be of many years.
These kinds of belts are very strong. They are driven by chain, which can be used in light as well as heavy-duty applications. The belts are formed from a series of castellated plates rolled to form hinges, linked with cross rods, passing through the hinge points and side chain.
The side chains are retained with a split pin, which allows simple dismantling for maintenance purpose.
Spiral grind belts are specially designed for spiral conveyors of multiple levels, used in the food industry, but are also ideal for a lot of other applications that require the capacity to turn either left or right.
Spiral grind belts are used for testing, cooling and freezing pizza and fish stick production dough. Soft products generally require de support of a mesh overlay, while other products can be adjusted to rods-only belt or flat wire belting.
The belt can also be provided with reinforcing links, extra plate links for the transportation of the product.
The spiral grind belt has many different versions to optimize your choice and is available in:
Manufactured with left and right hand spiral, connected with a crimped connecting rod to create a balanced weave. This weave is designed with the letter “V”
V = balance weave designation
72 = 72 loops of wire per foot width
24 = 24 spirals connected in a foot of length
16 = gauge of wire (0.62″ diameter)
This type of weave is the most common used in general friction driven applications, like direct driven mesh and chain driven applications. This kind of belt is widely used in the food industry. This type of belts usually come with round wires, but can also be made with flattened wire.
Material: Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel 304, 316.
This type of belts can be used in a temperature range of -50°C – 1100°C, and can be delivered in every length and width up to 4m or more. To get a tight mesh, the belt can be made with multiple weave. In this belt, the spirals are nested and one spiral has 3, 4 or 5 cross rods instead of 2.
Modular plastic belts are designed for special processes, but can be used in common transportation systems. These belts are connected with various stainless steel rods and extra stainless steel reinforcing plates or side chains.
The stainless steel reinforcing plates and cross rods gives the belt its great firmness. There are a great number of different perforations available.
This type of belts has been very popular in a lot of industries due to its durability and reliability. Wire link belts made of thin round wires with an eyelet on both sides, which are hinged by a pin. This way a think one-layer belt is created with the following advantages:
So there is no belt slip and it is possible to use small diameters. All this add to one perfect belt that works without direction problems.
Eye link belts are used in: freezing units, foundries, quench tanks, dehydration unit, pasteurizers, drying units, steel blast units, sieving units, packing machines, baking ovens, cooling systems, blanching units, stage units, shrinkage units, washing machines and so on.
These belts have a lightweight single layer construction and are driven by sprockets. They also have an open structure (70%-85% open) and are frequently used in cooling, frying, baking, heating, decorating, battering and packaging machines for light products.
Material: Stainless Steel Spring Wire
Wire diameter ranges from 0.9mm to 3.2mm pitches from 4mm to 22.23mm and belt width from 10mm to 3m.
Flat flex belts can be made for straight or curve conveyors, they are also usually driven by toothed sprockets made of stainless steel or plastic. The number of teeth on the sprockets is free to choose or can be made for any new or existing conveyors.
Applications: Snacks, fish, pizza, vegetables, bread, pastries, meat, candy, potatoes, biscuits, chocolate, nuts and fruits.
These belts are a variation of the balanced weave belts. The process consists on alternating left and right hand of the compressed spiral weave to create a very tight weave with a flat surface. They are generally assembled with a straight connecting rod, and are available on limited specifications with a crimped connecting rod.
CB = Compound Balance
3 = 3 cross rods per spiral
30 = 30 loops per foot width per spiral
72 = 72 spirals per foot length
14 = 14 gauge wire (0.080″ diameter)
Closer nesting of spirals which make this belt ideal for carrying small parts, such as: nuts, screws, nails, cookies, etc.
Mesh belts with chain attached to each edge for direct drive. The chain can be attached by rods passing through the mesh. The mesh will be determined by the smallest part size.
Most common meshes are balanced weave mesh, woven to suit in the support space.
We make and supply all kind of standard and non-standard roller chains for many industries, such as: SS2040, SS2042, SS2050, SS2052, SS2060, SS2062, SS2080, SS2082, etc. and material from carbon steel to stainless steel.
Besides, we can make and supply custom made roller chains if you have special needs.
