In the food production process, food safety must be guaranteed, then in food production, food delivery and production safety is also an important link.
In food transportation, light conveyor belts are commonly used, and among the light conveyor belts, PVC conveyor belts and PU conveyor belts are the most commonly used. PVC conveyor belts and PU conveyor belts are industrial conveyor belts, but their The difference is in the composition. The PVC conveyor belt has a rubber surface material of polyvinyl chloride, and the PU conveyor belt has a raw material of polyurethane. It meets food hygiene standards and can be directly contacted with food, with moderate color and no odor.
Judging from the data of consulting and purchasing conveyor belts in the past, these two conveyor belts have always been the products that customers buy the most. In terms of choice, many customers will ask which of these two conveyor belts is better. The problem is mainly to look at the transported items as well as the transport equipment.
So how do you choose the right conveyor belt for transportation?
If you are transporting food, such as candy, pasta, meat, seafood, baked goods, etc., PU conveyor belts are preferred.
The reasons are as follows:
1. PU conveyor belt is made of polyurethane (PU), transparent, clean, non-toxic and tasteless, and can be in direct contact with food.
2, PU conveyor belt has the characteristics of oil resistance, water resistance and cutting resistance, thin body, good toughness, and tensile strength.
3, in line with FDA food grade certification
Polyurethane (PU) is a material that is soluble in nature and is called green raw material. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) contains substances that are harmful to humans. Therefore, if it is related to the food industry, from the perspective of food safety, the choice of PU conveyor belt is the best.
4. Considering durability, the PU conveyor belt can be cut to a certain thickness and can be used for the cutter, and it can be cut repeatedly.
PVC conveyor belts are mainly used for food packaging and transportation and non-food transportation. Its price is lower than that of the PU conveyor belt, and its service life is generally shorter than that of the polyurethane conveyor belt.
