AFC manufactures a variety of PTFE and silicone-coated lightweight conveyor belting. These are commonly referred to as process belts, as some sort of change is imparted on the product when conveyed through a heat zone. This includes curing, cooking, and sealing, among other aggressive processes. PTFE-coated fiberglass is the ideal option for high temperature applications (up to 550°F or 287°C) that require consistent, clean release. Examples include:
- Press Belts for Tortilla and Pizza
- Contact Grilling Belts for Chicken and Other Meats
- Drying/Curing Belts for Can Manufacturing and Screen Printing
- Side Sealing Belts for Paper Packaging
- And Many More
Our belting comes in a variety of proprietary coating formulas, and can be found under the trade names DuraFab®, DuraFlow®, DuraSil®, and DuraLam®. With a variety of splices, edging & tracking mechanisms, and installation accessories, AFC can provide you with a solution suited for your specific application.
Choosing the Right Belt for Your Application
Our Belt Design Guide demonstrates the steps required when choosing the right belt for your production line.
- Select Material Style (see Fabrics)
- Determine Belt Dimensions
- Width (edge to edge)
- Net Endless Length (continuous [closed] belt length)
- If existing belt is in good condition: lay belt on the floor and measure from one end of the belt to the other end.
- If existing belt is badly deteriorated: center the take-up pulley and measure the path of the belt through the dryer using a tape.
- Edge Reinforcements
- Splices/Seam Type
- Splice Options (can choose more than one)
- Flap over and/or under the splice (Mechanical Splice)
- Molding over and/or under splice (Butt or Overlap Splice)
- Stitched Splice
- Stitched Flap
- Guiding and Tracking
Sample Belt Design:
Material 27-48, W36" X L240", 1" Sewn and Sealed- Fiberglass, Galvanized Alligator, Flap Over Splice, No Guides
