Conveyor belts and elevators for foodstuffs
Systems and devices for transport of the product
The conveyor belt is generally little considered because it does not play an active role in treatment of the product; however, it is a very important element for configuration of a production line in that it connects the various production machines and gives the line flexibility. The belts can be made in a very wide range of sizes, materials and shapes in order to meet all customer needs. The carpet of the conveyor can be made of PVC, polyurethane, polypropylene, stainless steel or other types of material; it can also come with porters and side rails so that it can be used on elevator belts for loading machines at any height. It may also be constructed for straight or curved paths, or can be constructed so as to form a hollow suitable for transporting flour or doughs. Alongside the conveyor belts, there are various accessories such as pneumatic pistons, retractable belts and much more, which are suitable for maintaining orderliness of product or modifying the path depending on the type of treatment to be carried out, all controlled automatically by a specific PLC.
