Features / Benefits
Dewatering belts are offered in blue and white versions and typically have a 2mm square aperture which allows for fast and efficient water drainage. The belt edges are reinforced with either PU or PVC that encapsulate the yarns preventing them from fraying and falling in to the products.
It is important to consider if PU or PVC edging is best suited for you. This can depend on the cleaning agents used on your belts as some products can have an effect on either types depending which cleaning solutions you are using.
Tracking guides can be fitted to the inside face of the belt edges to allow for ease of tracking and are offered either endless or with a stainless steel fastener for ease of fitting. In situations where the belts are used inclined, flights can be fitted to prevent the products falling back down the belt.
