Food conveyor belts: operation and precautions

Food conveyor belts are an essential element in the food industry, as they allow products to be transported efficiently and safely. In this blog, we will talk about food conveyor belts, their operation and the precautions to be taken to ensure their correct use.

How do food conveyor belts work?

Food conveyor belts work by means of a system of rollers and a belt that rotates around them. Products are placed on the belt and move forward as the belt moves.

The speed and direction of the belt can be adjusted to suit different types of products and production speeds. This adaptation is crucial in order to ensure the food safety of various products, as it is often necessary to keep the product for a certain time in different cooling or cooking rooms.

At GANAL we are pioneers in the manufacture of the transport chain, made of stainless steel, which allows the products to be distributed in an optimal and safe way. And we also have the best suppliers to offer an optimal product that meets all the challenges. For this reason, we rely on Intralox, a brand of recognised prestige, to manufacture the modular belts we offer.

What precautions should be taken?

In order to guarantee a safe and adequate use of the modular food belts, it is necessary to carry out regular maintenance of the machinery in order to ensure its optimal functioning and thus prevent any type of problem.

Regular maintenance of the structure must include regular cleaning of the belts to prevent contamination of the products being transported.

Last but not least, the safety of the operators working with the conveyor belt must be taken into account. Maintaining all the appropriate safety measures is essential when working with any type of machinery.

At GANAL we have the latest technology for the development of modular belts for the food industry that can be used for the transport of trays, fermentation, cooling or freezing of products thanks to their capacity to withstand extreme temperatures. We also offer a safety pack of spare parts to prevent any type of incident in production, as well as regular maintenance of the conveyors.

Trust GANAL for the purchase and maintenance of your food conveyor belt.
