Bakery – Bread Conveying

Bakery – Bread Conveying

Research shows that there is 20% more wear and friction in steel on steel applications compared to steel on plastic applications.

After years of development, we are now ready to manufacture a full range of 2540 series modular belting that is set to compete with its imported competition in both design and material specification.

What Does this mean ?

Bakeries today use a lot of stainless steel slat band chain is to transport and convey hot and heavy steel or aluminium bread pans. Stainless steel slat band is used because this product has good resistance to wear and heat…. But there is a negative to using stainless steel slat band chain namely :

  • Stainless steel slat band chain is very abrasive to the counter surface of the bread pans and research shows that using stainless steel slat band chain can wear bread pans 20% quicker than compared to using a plastic chain like that of the plastic HPP 2540 Series.
  • The HPP 2540 Series weights half per meter of chain compared to Stainless steel slat band chain which is twice as heavy compared to the HPP 2540 Series, therefore the HPP 2540 Series puts far less pressure on drive motors resulting in less energy consumption therefore reducing energy consumption and reducing carbon footprint.
  • The HPP 2540 Series is far less noisier in application compared to stainless steel slat band chain.
  • Coverting to HPP 2540 Series is simple as just changing the sprockets to the 2540 series, all other bends and tracks will remain the same.

 

The HPP 2540 range will consist of the following sizes and types :

  • 3.25″ Positrack straight running – replace 3.25″ straight running stainless steel chain
  • 4.5″ Positrack straight running – replace 4.5″ straight running stainless steel chain
  • 7.5″ Positrack single hinge straight running – replace 7.5″ straight running stainless steel chain
  • 7.5″ Positrack double hinge straight running – replace 7.5″ double hinge straight running stainless steel chain
  • 3.25″ Side Flex TAB – replace 3.25″ side flex TAB stainless steel chain
  • 4.5″ Side Flex TAB – replace 4.5″ side flex TAB stainless steel chain
  • 7.5″ Side Flex TAB – replace 7.5″ side flex TAB stainless steel chain
