Spiral Freezing

Spiral belts reduce unscheduled downtime and improve product quality in spiral freezers

Our spiral belt material is hydrophobic, preventing moisture from adhering to the belt in freezing applications and facilitating product release. Open area is preserved, and run time is increased. And because Intralox spiral belts are constructed of modular plastic, problems of metal belting, such as metal wear debris, are completely eliminated. As a result, excessive tension and downtime associated with belt flipping are eliminated or reduced. While production jams may still occur, our belts facilitate easy and quick repair to keep downtime to a minimum. And with no metal wear debris or lubricants, Intralox spiral belts are easier and faster to clean than metal and other plastic spiral belts.

Benefits of the DirectDrive System™ (DDS™) for freezing:

  • Ensures consistent product orientation
  • Eliminates issues related to loss of friction between the belt and drum (from frost or ice buildup)
  • Reduces product loss or damage
  • Eliminates overdrive
