The need to separate, converge or sort products, such as biscuits and cakes requiring coating with chocolate, while they are moving on a process belt conveyor, can be a problem for food companies. It often requires a change of belt width to suit different makes of equipment.

Now the Wire Belt Company has come up with the answer - a simple, positively-driven non-slip spreader or converger, which uses narrow strands of single-space stainless steel belting.

The device comprises rows of belting running on a food quality polyethylene support plate and a series of small stainless steel sprockets driving within the mesh of the belt strands.

The basic design is the fan type spreader or converger.

An alternative placement spreader or converger would be used where the product is in a known location.

With this system, movement is achieved by feeding the product on to a series of straight chains carrying it to a predetermined position at the exit of the conveyor.
