Conveyor systems are key to any food processing operation. In this post, we take a look at the systems and belts offered by Wrightfield.
Wrightfield Conveyor Systems
The modular belt is a flexible, versatile and reliable conveying solution manufactured by Wrightfield. The belt permits products to be conveyed through inclined, horizontal and helical paths, while 90 and 180 degree turns are also possible. This low maintenance belt is available in widths and lengths to suit all applications.
The polyurethane belt, more commonly known as the PU belt, has a hygienic design that is resistant to grease, oils, water and other liquids. This feature means the belt lends itself perfectly to the food manufacturing industry. Hardy but gentle, the belts can cater for anything from delicate food substances to large packages.
With great flexibility, the slat belt is one of the most effective conveyor systems when it comes to dealing with complex loops and corners. The belt can be used for long and winding routes so is ideal if floor space is restricted. In general is best suited to smaller, lighter-duty items.
If space is at a premium, few conveyor systems are as effective as the spiral conveyor. This conveyor also allows for products to be transported from one level to another, for instance if a facility has more than one floor. The spiral conveyor can be supplied in a number of widths and heights, depending on the individual requirements of the customer.
Designed for the transference of products and materials from one belt system to another, the transfer conveyor can be seen as something of an intermediary of the belt world. The conveyors offer great flexibility and can be designed specifically to the requirements of the customer.
The elevator conveyance system is a practical and affordable solution for the transfer of products between levels. In addition to incline and decline functions, elevator conveyors can perform S-bends and tight turns.
