It is important to select the right belt for the application or process. There are many kinds of belts specifications that are designed specifically for inclines and declines. Swan neck conveyor or z conveyors need to be dimensionally stable across the width to prevent creasing.
Choosing the correct cover or coating or important too. This is because you may need a belt with lots of grip for an incline or one with a surface such as a woven fabric for release.
Blue coloured belts are increasingly popular within food process applications. This is because blue is a colour not naturally found within food products and is easily identifiable to the naked eye should damage occur and find itself within the food being processed.
Belts with special metal detectable fibers that are woven to the carrier are also available too and can be found in most belt types.
