New metal detectable cords and belts launch

Specialist conveyor belting firm Rydell Industrial (Belting) has launched a range of industry certified metal detectable cords and belts suitable for use by the food industry.

Deteriorating conveyor belts have previously led to cases where food has been recalled because bits of the belts have been discovered in products, so belts that are detectable by inspection systems is a great help to the industry.

Fast moving polyurethane belts used in food processing are subject to wear and abrasion. Rydell Industrial’s commercially compliant belting is produced in an easy to identify blue colour making it easy to see.

“Our new line of metal detectable food grade belting takes this range to the next step in food safety,” the company states. “PU80A SAFE belts are made of a special thermoplastic recipe that allows very small particles to be detected by most standard metal detection equipment used in the food industry.”

Wet and dry applications

Rydell Industrial said the belts were fully compliant with Food and Drug Administration and European Commission requirements. They could be used in dry and wet applications and ensured food safety by reducing the risk of contamination, it added.

The belts are available in a range of different profiles, including round, flat and special, to order and are designed to offer the highest safety through detectability.

Rydell is based in Kings Park, New South Wales. The firm provides a range of belts for a variety of different industries, of which the food processing sector is just one.
