Conveyor belts for food washing

The first criticality of the conveyor belts for washing fruits, vegetables, fish products, and similar products is for sure the very high humidity of the place where they work. A conveyor belt for food washing is constantly exposed to water and cleaning substances, in addition, is obviously in contact with food, for these reasons, must be realized in a material which not suffer any kind of corrosion even under similar conditions and that can be accurately sanitized with the necessary frequency. For all these things, the belts intended for the movement of food in the specific washing machine are realized in stainless steel.

In addition to this, it is fundamental to ensure a quick water drain at the end of the operations, in order not to let the food in a humid space that could ruin them. For this reason, it is usually preferred to opt for a configuration of the conveyor belt with a large opening.
