A common failure of many plastics used in conveyor belt comes from chemical attack of the belt compound. Most chemical exposure comes from plant cleaning operations. There is a group of food products that contain natural juice corrosives. During the processing of these fruits acidic liquid is present. There are applications where the fruit is packaged in pickled acidic solutions as well. Conventional belts quickly crack and develop micro-fissures which harbor pathogens and weaken the belt. Volta has developed a line of materials that resists this degradation making our slicing and packing line belts an invaluable asset in fruit processing and canning factories. Pineapple slicing is an important cash crop in many countries and audits are carried out on behalf of international supermarket chains. Volta material is recognized as conforming to the highest standards of efficiency and safety.
