BMG’s Light Materials Handling division supplies and supports a comprehensive range of belting products suitable for the food processing, bottling and packaging sectors.
“New to BMG’s range of belting certified for safe food handling, is the KleenEdge non-fray series, developed by Ammeraal Beltech to minimise the problems of belt-edge fray and associated contamination issues, ensuring absolute hygiene in food processing,” explains Ryan Forsyth, Business Unit Manager, Light Materials Handling division, BMG. “Another popular product in the local food handling sector is BMG’s new Ammeraal Beltech Pop-up flight solution for inclined food conveyors, which has been designed to reduce waste, enhance efficiency and minimise costs.”
Easy-to-clean KleenEdge belting has been designed with a high-strength, low-stretch fabric reinforcement, which is held securely in a tough, non-cracking thermoplastic structure. This durable assembly prevents the risk of contamination, belt shrinkage and distortion that may occur from belt-edge wear during use.
KleenEdge is suitable for use in arduous applications, particularly where knife edges are present. This belting can also be safely used on roller supports, slider bed and troughed applications. Typical applications include high-risk food processing areas, like bakeries and confectioneries, meat, poultry and fish processing, the dairy industry and fruit and vegetable processing.
BMG’s Ammeraal Beltech Pop-up flights for inclined food conveyors, are integrated into modular belt systems, to prevent product residues left on the belt and they also minimise droppage onto the floor. These mechanical Pop-up flights – with an automatic rise and fall on the belt – operate in conjunction with discharge belt-scrapers, without the need for secondary drive motors or complex controls.
