All belts from ScanBelt are naturally available in the traditional materials; Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP) and Polyacetal (POM).
All standard materials are FDA approved for direct food contact.
Polyethylene can handle operational temperatures down to ÷73° C and is thus suitable for installations in cold areas. It will also be ideal for applications that require a flexible belt material with superior impact strength.
Polypropylene can handle operational temperatures up to 100° C. It is a harder material with a good pulling force. It is suitable for installations in high range temperature areas as well as boilers and dryers to a certain degree. It has excellent chemical resistance towards aggressive cleaning chemicals etc.
Polyacetal is a strong all-round material with a working temperature from ÷43° to +95°. This material has great pulling force and a hard surface, which gives a reduced friction to both the support and the product. It is sensitive to blows or knocks due to low impact strength. Suitable for bottling and canning industry. Should be used with caution in installations that use cleaning agents containing acid and/or chlorine.
