Flush grid belt.

Intralox's new Series 1500 Flush Grid belt was developed as a replacement for wire belting in a variety of applications including breading, layout, enrobing, cooling, further processing and transfer conveyors. The new belt is capable of nosebar transfers as small as 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) and has 48 percent open area for drainage and airflow. Its open hinge design and half-round link barrels expose the hinge rods for fast, thorough cleanup. And its plow feature allows breading material to be scraped away, adding to its efficiency. The Series 1500 Flush Grid belt can offer advantages including modular plastic construction, longer belt life, minimized risk of worker injury and food contamination caused by small pieces of damaged wire belting, and the absence of pinch points on the belt. The Series 1500 Flush Grid is available in virtually any width and length. A single belt can replace the multiple wire belts required in some applications, saving valuable plant floor space.
