Most people know Teflon as the coating that is used in non-stick cookware, where it allows food to sear without getting stuck to the pan. However, this is certainly not the only application of this brand of PTFE. Teflon is also used in industries that work with a conveyor belt. The Teflon coating on the conveyor belt prevents products getting stuck.
This has numerous advantages. First of all, if products do not get stuck on the conveyor belt, they can be transported evenly and swiftly, which enhances the production process. Second, a Teflon conveyor belt is perfect for use in the packaging industry, where packs with products are sealed using high temperatures.
Why choose a Teflon conveyor belt?
That application is one of the main reasons that manufacturers choose a Teflon conveyor belt. Since it is heat-resistant up to high temperatures – Hardick sells belts that can withstand a temperature of 260 degrees Celsius -, it can be used to pack all types of foods, without delaying the process.
Our Teflon conveyor belts are really innovative and created based on over a century of knowledge and experience in the industry. They are an answer to questions such as ‘how do I make an invisible PTFE weld‘ or ‘How do I get a perfect match between PTFE and the glass or aramid fabric’.
Solving problems like this has turned Hardick into a global partner for businesses all around the world. From our headquarters in the Netherlands, we serve customers in Holland, Europe, and even in Japan and Australia. Our sales engineers travel throughout the world and visit customers to find out what they are dealing with.
We discuss wish lists, problems, and requirements with designers, operators, and senior managers and use all this input to create innovative solutions that can be used to enhance both the production process and the industry itself. We even have an in-house project team that specialises in this.
