Food Safety

ThermoDrive incline-to-packaging solutions help you meet your food safety goals while spending less on sanitation and maintenance. ThermoDrive belts and accessories meet the highest standards for food safety risk mitigation and global hygienic performance standards.

Worried about belt-related foreign material risks? ThermoDrive belts can be cleaned in place on incline conveyors—eliminating the potential for belt damage during removal and reinstallation—and their hinge-free surfaces prevent bacterial harborage.

You can’t afford to take chances with food safety. With ThermoDrive technology, you won’t have to.

Sanitation

A ThermoDrive belt is one you might actually enjoy cleaning. Its lighter weight means it’s easy to lift and clean in place. Its surface is fully closed, dries quickly, and is easy to wipe down—all of which ensure faster startups and product changeovers.

With simpler, more efficient sanitation along your inclines, you’ll dramatically reduce the time and money you spend. Our customers have decreased sanitation costs by as much as 75%.

Most significantly, you can reduce cleaning and changeover time up to 50%. This means more uptime—for maintenance, inspections, or production—to help you increase throughput.

Because there’s so many changeovers, when you start adding this up over the course of a year, it ends up being tens of thousands of dollars.

Reliability

The patented ThermoDrive tensionless belt system ensures reliable, predictable performance and eliminates the need for tension adjustments. Combined with lighter belt weight, this makes sanitation more efficient and frees up time for preventive maintenance.

Belts can be easily cleaned in place, which ensures extended belt life by eliminating the need for frequent removal or reinstallation.

ThermoDrive-equipped inclines help you decrease total cost of ownership by reducing operations and maintenance costs and eliminating unscheduled, belt-related downtime.

The end result is a conveyor that gets the job done, has the best sanitary characteristics, and is easy to work with.
