Metal Detectable Food Grade Belting

The problem with using elastic urethane belting in the food industry is that a broken belt that falls on a food conveyor cannot be detected with metal detectors, so it can get packaged with the food. Our new Metal Detectable belts, made from round, food grade urethane, solve this problem. Although our Super Strong Welds should virtually eliminate the possibility of a belt breaking at the weld, if for some reason our metal detectable belts should break or be cut, they will be easily detected by metal detectors. In fact, in tests the detector was set off by our belt well before it entered the detector tunnel.
  • Available in round 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", 9/16" and 5/8" (5mm, 6.3mm, 8mm, 9.5mm, 10mm, 12.5mm, 14mm, and 16mm) diameter.
  • Food grade FDA approved.
  • 85A durometer in clear, orange or yellow color.
  • 92A durometer in vibrant blue color.

Belt detected by metal detectors

Warning:   Urethane alone cannot be detected by metal detectors. Tiny embedded copper wires make these belts detectable. If these belts abrade and urethane dust falls on the product, the dust will not be detected. Therefore, you should build safeguards that prevent abrasion, or that prevent abraded dust from falling on your product. In addition, since we do not have an industrial metal detector (cost $10,000+), customer's QC department must test each belt, when received, with their metal detector to ensure that copper wires were properly installed, and to ensure that the sensitivity of their metal detectors are turned up enough to detect the copper in the belts.
