Habasit recommended the smooth surface Habasit Cleandrive belt with flights to hold the wood slates off the belt surface, which allowed excess glue to drip onto the solid belt surface below. The closed surface eliminated the drip through of the heavy glue onto the conveyor components.
Habasit was able to save the customer three hours of clean-up each day of the hardened glue substance that needed to be chiselled off the old slate chain. This amounted to $54,750 a year in clean-up charges. Also the Habasit Cleandrive belt has significantly reduced emergency shutdowns and therefore prevents lost production time and money loss.
