A new plastic conveyor belt has been added to Starfrost’s (York) freezing and chilling equipment range. Sourced from supply partner Ashworth, the belt has an all-plastic contact surface to give good product release and easy hygiene. It is suitable for spiral and straight
tunnel freezers.The Advantage belt combines blue plastic (acetal) links and body modules with metal rods for strength – it can handle tension loads of up to 1,500lbs. Available in standard widths from 203mm to 1,524mm, the belt features a patented rod locking system for easy installation and repair. Dave Pearson, director, says Starfrost’s systems concentrated on vertical airflow, as this helps make the freezer 20% more compact than horizontal airflow. The focus, he adds, is on maximising the efficiency of freezing systems and reducing customers’ running costs.
