A MatTop Plastic 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 MatTop 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 MatTop 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. MatTop conveyors come in straight, curve, incline and decline configurations.
MatTop 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 MatTop conveyors for an accumulation of products prior to filling, capping, and sealing.
- Industrial applications include pallets, parts and case handling applications.
- MatTop conveying is ideal for parts washers, and any wet application where standard belt conveyors will not work effectively.
