Wire Belt's CompactGrid conveyor belt

Tuesday, 13 February, 2018 | Supplied by: Richard Foot Machinery

Wire Belt’s CompactGrid conveyor belt is used in the food industry for applications such as cooking, cooling, draining, enrobing and freezing. It is designed to handle smaller, delicate products while giving users a lightweight, open mesh belt design.

The conveyor belt can improve efficiencies because of its flow-through capabilities, which reduces the time required to heat up or cool down a product, in turn reducing energy costs. It has a 70% open surface area giving food manufacturers optimal performance in processes where product coating, drainage, and liquid or air circulation are factors.

Made of stainless steel, the no-slip design means the belt will not catch fire on a system like plastic conveyor belts can. Its rugged open design makes it suitable for cooling products in high-volume, high-throughput processes.

It can be used for both food products, such as bakery, poultry, meat, snacks and confectionery, and non-food applications, such as parts washers for corrugated cardboard and circular knives.

The belt has a 10x10 mm nominal square opening designed to handle small and delicate products. The tight mesh of the belt allows for optimal product support and can handle heavy loads.

Compared to plastic modular types, it can increase food conveyor hygiene standards. It has USDA approval and it does not need to be removed from the conveyor system for cleaning; its openness allows visual inspection of drive shafts without the need for dismantling, eliminating the need for clean-out-of-place tanks and reducing maintenance downtime.

Installation on a conveying system is quick and easy. Processors can join or splice the belt on their conveyor by simply hooking the belt ends together and crimping to close.
