Steel belts for efficient, hygienic food processing

Sandvik Process Systems will use Anuga FoodTec 2018 to highlight the extensive range of food related applications for its carbon and stainless steel belts, and will be demonstrating one of its conveyor units.


Sandvik is the world’s leading manufacturer of steel belts and process systems for the food industry, supplying solid and perforated belts and a wide range of processing equipment. 

Applications range from simple conveying and sorting to operations where the thermal properties of a steel belt – the ability to conduct heat and operate in extreme temperatures – are also important, such as freezing, cooling, solidification, drying, cooking and baking.

One of the key advantages of processing on a steel belt is the assurance of maximum hygiene; the strength, flatness and durability of a solid steel belt enables easy and effective cleaning and sanitising. This means that Sandvik stainless steel belts are often used for GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) compliant processing.

Bake oven belts

Sandvik carbon steel belts have been used in bake ovens for almost 100 years and continue to offer a number of advantages over other conveyor types including performance, durability and energy efficiency. Their versatility enables the production of a wide range of products – including all butter cookies – and a number of manufacturers have worked with Sandvik to upgrade their conveyors from mesh to solid or perforated steel belts.

Rotoform solidification

Sandvik also produces its own process systems and is a leading supplier of forming/solidification equipment. These ranges include the Rotoform, a system that combines a drop depositor and stainless steel cooling belt to solidify food products such as chocolate into pastilles.
