Complete range of belts to cover all the needs in the food industry

Main characteristics and benefits of our TPU and TPE belts in food processing

Belts of 1-ply and 2-ply which comply strictly with FDA food normative and/or EU regulations EU 10/2011 and EC 1935/2004, supported by their corresponding Declaration of Compliance.

Both TPU and TPE are thermoplastics with high resistance to abrasion and are suitable for applications where the products are abrasive or where scrapers and side skirts are used.

The smooth and mat cover belts are non-porous and are easy to clean. Esbelt also offers belts with topcover embossments.

Above average load capacity but high flexibility for knife edge applications.  The impermeabilized fabrics are “Wick Resistant” which prevent the absorption of liquids (pass Wicking Test G11), enhancing hygiene.

Within the TPU range, we have 2 series:

Standard TPU

  • Highly resistant to animal and vegetable oils and fats, no cracks, high level of hygiene.

  • Prevents accumulation of soils and micro-organisms.

  • Recommended for oily and abrasive applications.

Premium TPU 

  • Bacteriostatic formulation with strong and long lasting anti-microbial and antibiofilms effects (ISO 22196).

  • Highly resistant to hydrolysis.

  • High flexibility under cold temperatures.

  • Specially recommended for applications where there is strict cleaning and disinfecting protocol, where there is high humidity and the control of microbial load is of vital importance.

 

TPE Food or Poler-Food (PF) 

  • Belts with wide temperature range, between -20ºC & +100ºC (constant) and between -30ºC & +120ºC (intermittent).

  • Excellent thermal conductivity for cooling tunnels.

  • Metal Detectable option to enhance food stream inspection, protect brand reputation and demonstrate due diligence.
