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.
Note: Wide width materials may be subject to extended lead times. Please contact our Customer Success Team for more information by product type.
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
