40% Increase in Lifetime for oven conveying

Exposure to high temperatures invariably occurs during the processing of food as the ingredients are cooked, preserved or dried.

One manufacturer uses VICTREX™ PEEK in its range of food processing belts which are used in aggressive food cooking environments. Here, excellent wear, product release, mechanical properties and high temperature performance are required. The coated belts provide increased wear and abrasion resistance, improved cut-through resistance, increased puncture and impact resistance, as well as non-stick properties.

When these properties are combined with improved dimensional stability, resistance to oils and grease, and continuous temperature resistance up to 260°C (500°F) the belt’s life can be increased by up to 40%, reducing both downtime and maintenance costs of the line³.

The human population is rapidly expanding, the subsequent demand for food products is forecasted to increase by 70% to 2050¹. In real terms, this equates to a staggering 2.7 billion more mouths to feed in the next 30 years.
