ThermoDrive belting combines the cleanability of solid homogeneous belting with the low-maintenance, positive-drive operation of Intralox modular belting. ThermoDrive belts are made from homogeneous thermoplastic with 100% closed surfaces—a perfect solution for food-processing applications, especially those with strict sanitation and hygiene requirements.
ThermoDrive belting's zero-pretension operation, enabled by patented limiter technology, ensures that it is the only technology that allows loose running of the entire conveyor system. This results in extended belt life, minimized costs, reduced downtime, improved belt–edge integrity, and increased efficiency.
The Purpose Behind the Belt
The ThermoDrive belt's solid thermoplastic structure eliminates bacterial harborage, facilitates effective cleaning, and enables achievement of zero-level microorganism counts, all while reducing cleaning time (by up to 75%) and cleaning costs.
Lightweight and easy to install, ThermoDrive belting eliminates tensioning, tracking, and cleanability issues that often arise with traditional flat belts. The belt's loose conveyor fit eliminates the need for tracking or steering. Users realize significant cost savings due to ThermoDrive belts' longer belt life—up to five times longer than traditional flat belts, depending on the application.
Intralox utilizes customized equipment to produce ThermoDrive belting's top-of-the-line, homogeneous, solid thermoplastic material. Accessories such as scoops, flights, and synchronized sidewalls are permanently molded to the belt using a "coved" base.
The premium quality of both the ThermoDrive product and the processes used to manufacture it increase the reliability, performance, and structural integrity of the entire system to guarantee efficiency and food safety.
ThermoDrive belts' homogeneous surface enables thorough cleaning and scraping, prevents loss of liquid, and eliminates the possibility of product remnants adhering to, or getting into, the belt material. This improves yield and reliability, as product does not stay on the belt when it's not supposed to.
