A Mat Style Belt Conveyor is a thermoplastic conveyor belt constructed from a series of "flights" attached together by connecting rods.
This conveying system has a stainless steel and carbon steel frame. A mat top conveyor is driven by plastic sprockets attached to a square drive shaft that ensure positive belt tracking. It has a wide range of features that include durability, wash down, impact resistance, temperature resistant and is ideal for product accumulation.
A Mat Top conveyor can run at speeds up to 300 feet per minute (fpm) and handle heavy loads with a belt pull of up to 907 pounds per foot of belt width.
Mat-Top conveyors are used in a wide scope of applications:
- Food processing applications range from purveying of meat, processing of vegetables, and food assembly lines for pizzas, sandwiches and prepared meals.
- Automated filling lines utilize Mat top conveyors for an accumulation of products prior to filling, capping, and sealing.
- Industrial applications include pallet, parts and case handling applications.
- Mat top conveying is ideal for parts washers, and any wet application where standard belt conveyors will not work effectively.
