Habasit Cleandrive™ Conveyor Belts

Belts play a key role in many production processes, and particularly in the food industry, the hygiene properties of the belts used are absolutely crucial.

For specific applications in hygiene sensitive areas, Habasit has developed a brand new belt concept: the Cleandrive™ conveyor and processing belt.

Habasit Cleandrive™ features a totally smooth conveying surface, combined with a reverse side structure of lateral drive bars, which fit perfectly into the sprockets of 2" HabasitLINK® plastic modular belts.

High quality thermoplastic material allows use in aggressive cleaning areas, while the closed surface limits the accumulation of waste and debris on the reverse side. Longitudinal reinforcement using high-tech aramide cords ensures belt stability even long-term and under load. The positive engagement of the Habasit Cleandrive™ bars allows the use of an energy-saving conveyor design, similar to plastic modular belt conveyors.
