Conveyor and transmission belt manufacturer Chiorino UK has launched a new belt that ensures absolute hygiene

In response to the food industry's growing hygiene demands in the production process, Chiorino has exceeded the rigorous criteria laid down by new European Food Directives. This includes only using chemicals in the production of its conveyor belts that are authorised to be in contact with foodstuffs and keeping the migration levels of these chemicals to a minimum.

In addition, to ensure total hygiene, Chiorino has recently launched a new range of high pressure (HP) polyurethane food belts that do not contain any biocide additives that could migrate from the surface and contaminate products being conveyed. This is achieved through a production technique called calendaring, which ensures the surfaces of the HP polyurethane belts are compact and homogeneous. A special HP impregnation of the fabric in the driving surface of the belts acts as insulation and further protects against bacterial infiltration.

Chiorino md, Carl Johnson, said: "This means there is a total absence of cracking in the material, and stops the formation of bacterial colonies on the surface of the belts.

"We also offer a Declaration of Compliance with the purchase of these products, which offers our food manufacturing customers complete peace of mind."
