The new staggered sidewall belt for Dorner’s AquaPruf VBT Conveyor features Vertical Belt Technology, which makes it easier to clean and sanitize, provides greater pocket capacity, and also requires less maintenance than a traditional bucket elevator.
The belt is made from FDA-approved and USDA-certified food safe urethane belt material, making it appropriate for elevating bulk products in 90° sanitary applications, such as vegetables, fruits/grains/nuts, popcorn, pet food, pharmaceuticals and others. Additionally, the belt provides 15% more pocket capacity and improved product release than traditional sidewall belt designs.
Both the pockets and staggered sidewall cleats are RF welded for heavy duty bond strength. Each sidewall cleat offers 80% less bond area compared to a traditional sidewall belt. This helps to reduce failure points and lowers both cleaning time and water usage. Saggered sidewalls can be independently replaced using a simple heat iron in a matter of minutes – on site, at the facility.
