Habasit Rossi has extended its high performance range of HabaSYNC timing belts for food production and packaging applications to include a new blue Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) belting solution.
The new belt is specifically designed for use in wet environments, where humidity, wash down and oily conditions can be found, reported Food and Drink News.
FDA approved, the HabaSYNC Blue 90 Shore A Polyether TPU timing belt is reinforced with aramide cords to ensure consistent and exact positioning, and is available in T5 and T10 pitches.
Ian Thornham, Sales and Marketing Director at Habasit Rossi, said: "With hygiene and process efficiency continuing to set the agenda for the food industry it is essential that we are continually working to develop innovative new solutions which will help plants meet these strict regulations as well as maximise productivity and efficiency.
"As part of the quality assurance process, blue is now increasingly becoming the belt colour of choice for food production environments as it is easily identifiable should belt damage occur. Our new high performance blue TPU belt is FDA approved and provides the perfect solution for manufacturers looking to significantly improve plant efficiency and stay ahead of the pack.
"In the food industry specifically this addition of a genuine blue FDA base belt along with our ability to put blue and other FDA compliant covers on a range of timing belts offers a comprehensive range of conveying and positioning solutions when added to our fabric, plastic modular and Cleandrive belt types."
