Replacing Wire Belt with Plastic Modular Belt

Yield increase at leading North American poultry processor 
  • Challenge
    Marinade dropping through the wire belt, resulting in waste. With the wire belt running under the product while being ploughed, it would literally scrape the marinade off.
  • Project goal
    Reduction of marinade waste, improvement of transfer performance.
  • Solution
    Installation of M0870 Micropitch
  • Result
    • Easy handling of the required transfer; minimum open areas in belt
    • Marinade wastage is now a fraction of before
    • No apparent wear or fatigue issues with the belt
