Food manufacturing and processing has a unique set of standards to meet and precautions to take to ensure safety and quality for consumers. Intralox ThermoDrive technology is a patented conveying solution that combines the benefits of positive drive, lowtension belting with a continuous, easy-to-clean surface. This match is ideal for hygiene-sensitive applications in food processing as it dramatically improves food safety and lowers operating costs through substantially reduced usage of water, chemicals, and cleaning labor and time. The results are extremely high levels of food safety and better product yields and margins.
ThermoDrive technology optimizes the operational performance of your conveyor system with patented the tensionless belt system. It goes beyond traditional positive drive systems and creates entirely new opportunities for advances in hygienic belt and conveyor design.
The ThermoDrive belt’s solid thermoplastic structure eliminates bacterial harborage, facilities effective cleaning, and enables achievement of zero-level microorganism counts, all while reducing cleaning time, by up to 75%, and cleaning costs.
Lightweight and easy to install, ThermoDrive belting eliminates tensioning, tracking, and cleanability issues that often arise with traditional flat belts. The belt’s loose conveyor fit eliminates the need for tracking or steering. users realize significant cost savings due to ThermoDrive belts’ longer belt life–up to five times longer than traditional flat belts, depending on the application.
Intralox utilizes customized equipment to produce ThermoDrive belting’s top-of-the-line, homogeneous, solid thermoplastic material. Accessories such as scoops, flights, and synchronized sidewalls are permanently molded to the belt using a “coved” base.
ThermoDrive belts’ homogenous surface enables thorough cleaning and scraping and prevents loss of liquid. This unique material also eliminates the possibility of product remnants adhering to, or getting into, the belt itself. This improves yield and reliability, as product does not stay on the belt when it’s not supposed to.
