New Conveyor Belt for Potato Processing

-

Cambridge Engineered Solutions has introduced PacLite, a new lighter weight, flatwire conveyor belt with variable openings that is ideally suited for potato rock traps. Manufactured using a new proprietary process developed by the company’s engineers, PacLite is 30-50 per cent stronger than a standard flatwire belt and weighs 10 per cent less than its predecessor, PacTitan. PacLite’s weight, strength and open area allows it to work well for rock traps where dirt, stones, stems and debris need to be separated from potatoes and other root crops at the early stages of processing. PacLite is available in both standard and heavy-duty versions and features Cambridge’s NokLokTM picket technology, a proprietary form of interlocking links that increases strength, durability and product stability and reduces belt stretch and distortion.
