Belting solutions

January 1, 2007




The Series 800 nub-top with no-cling flight belt was designed by Intralox to counteract the product sticking in fruit and vegetable applications.  The specially designed flights in this system have the nub-top/no-cling pattern on both sides to further aid product release.  The Series 1700 belt was designed to be an abrasion fighter for use in applications such as potato receiving areas and bulk dump elevators. The system includes a new belt/hinge rod design, new belt materials and new sprocket design, resulting in a belt with greater service life in highly abrasive applications, says the company.
