BRECOprotect timing belts are designed especially to meet the strict requirements associated with contact with food and the cleaning processes necessary in these areas. The fact that these timing belts do not feature a groove prevents hidden and difficult-to-remove contamination and thus makes the cleaning process easier. The blue colour of the BRECOprotect product range follows a general market trend towards a special food industry colour scheme. In addition, BRECOprotect timing belts are suitable for use in moist environments where there are severe limitations on the use of conventional timing belts on account of the appearance of hydrolysis.
BRECOprotect timing belts are offered as a by-the-metre product and in welded "endless" format. There is unlikely to be any need for additional mechanical work on the polyurethane belt body due to the protection of the tension carrier. Belt designs with welded profiles are possible in principle. However, the potential profile sizes and their loads are limited, while TPUAU1 is a mandatory material and the colour blue is again recommended.
