Automated Food Processing With Stainless Steel Conveyor Belts

Mar 2, 2018 | Case Studies

Stainless steel conveyor belt systems are ideal for the cooking, freezing, and handling of edible products. They are versatile and can easily be customized for any automated food processing system with exceptional results.

Metal conveyor belts do not outgas and do not require lubrication, which means there is no risk to the flavor or quality of the foods being processed. Unlike other conveyor materials, like wire mesh, fabric, or rubber, metal belts will not deteriorate or generate particulates that could contaminate food products.

Endless metal belts have a flat, nonporous surface and will not absorb bacteria. Conveyor systems from Belt Technologies are easy to sanitize between uses. They are resistant to chemical corrosion and can be sanitized with almost any standard cleaning method.

Metal belts can easily transition between hot and cold applications. They last longer and are more reliable than plastic conveyor belts in extreme temperatures. Stainless steel belts are excellent for cooking and handling raw materials because of their high thermal conductivity. Food is cooked thoroughly and evenly thanks to the quick, even transference of heat.
