One of the greatest concerns in meat industry is the cleaning of the production lines. Blood, viscera, and other organic substances make cleaning the belts difficult and, therefore, obtaining optimum sanitary conditions. That is why in food industry, and particularly in meat industry, all conveying systems have to be entirely accessible in order to carry out effective cleaning.
The EUROBELT plastic modular belts can be moved, taken off, lifted, even easily dismantled, to allow the access to the most difficult areas to be cleaned. Some belts have been specially designed for carrying out continuous cleaning without stopping the production line.
Some years ago the plastic modular belts brought about a technical revolution in the seafood industry. The conventional conveyor belts were frequently replaced due to tears caused by stones conveyed with the fish, or by the cutting tools used by processors. Every boat required a storage room to keep spare belts for every production line, as they could not be repaired in such a humid environment.
On the other hand, just one box with some spare parts is enough for repairing the plastic modular belts of every conveyor.
On land, the plastic modular belts will work in cool rooms, without absorbing any water, flavour, or smell, solving adherence problems of the frozen product on the belt. Likewise our C12 belt allows the conveyance of fish fillets without deforming them.
The poultry abattoirs handle a lot of product in their cutting rooms and require a good asepsis.
The EUROBELT plastic modular belts enable conveying of meat directly on the belt, as well as in trays or plastic containers, with the sanitary guarantee provided by the easy cleaning of our belts.
There is no problem in working at low temperatures, so that the product can be frozen directly on our belts, which have the advantages of lightness, flexibility, and frost easy removal.
Our belts do not smell or any bacterial contamination after proper washing, as they are manufactured from plastics with minimal absorption.
