What Are The Different Types of Food Conveyors?

There are two types of food conveyors: metal and plastic. Despite the material, each uses sanitary conveyor belts. All areas of the belt are accessible to clean, which is a must for food handling.

Metal Food Conveyor Belts

Metal Food Conveyor Belts

Typically made of stainless steel, these conveyors can withstand extreme temperatures. They are also chemical resistant, making them easy to disinfect. While the maintenance on metal belts are low, keep in mind that they are more likely to have film buildup from routine cleaning.

If any coating is necessary, metal belts can be a great conveying solution because of their draining capabilities. For example, a metal conveyor transporting produce from the field through a washer allows the water to easily drain from the belt.

Plastic Food Conveyor Belts

Powered Roller Conveyor

Like metal belts, plastic conveyors for food are easy to maintain and clean. They’re also chemical resistant, but prone to scratches. This creates the likelihood of germs surviving routine cleaning procedures because they live in the indentations of each scratch. With this in mind, plastic food conveyors are better suited for transporting packaged items. They also provide more friction than metal belts and minimize products sliding around on the belt.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which is Better For Food? Plastic vs. metal food belts

As long as the conveyor system uses a sanitary belt, both metal and plastic are great materials for food processing. Both have strengths and weaknesses depending on the processing stage. Metal belts are compatible with baking and cooking food. Plastic belts can withstand more impact when deboning and cutting up food.

How Often Should I Replace My Food Grade Conveyor Belts?

To ensure a food conveyor is always compliant, it is always safer to replace rather than repair. There are high risks that come with repairing a food processing conveyor. Malfunctioning equipment can hinder sanitation and result in unnecessary inspections, as well as product recalls.
