Habasit Introduces new Habasit Cleandrive Sprocket and Mechanical Lacing

We are happy to announce that we now offer the Habasit Cleandrive product with a mechanical lace joint, which is a hinge pin system. We also now offer sprockets with our HyClean design for use with our Habasit Cleandrive belt systems.

Habasit is happy to announce two new compliments to the Habasit Cleandrive system - Mechanical Lacing & Molded Sprockets. 

Mechanical Lacing (Update: now available in 1 & 2 inch)

The Habasit Cleandrive positive drive belt delivers significant advantages for wet applications in the food processing industry. We are happy to announce that we now offer this product with a mechanical lace joint, which is a hinge pin system. With the release of the 1" and 2" pitch Habasit Cleandrive, this product offers an exciting and innovative solution to meet the strictest hygiene requirements. The mechanical lace provides a simple assembly and dis-assembly option. The pin is reusable and easily inserted and removed using a headless design with locking collar. These features allow for easy cleaning, maintenance and minimization of downtime. The lace is not recommended for use with scrapers. 

Habasit is currently installing mechanical lace in-house and plans to release lace components with instructions for field installation at a later date.

HyClean Molded Sprockets

The sprockets use our HyClean design, which features an open structure for improving water flow, reducing cleaning time and easy access to the entire underside of the belt. The Habasit Cleandrive belt wraps smoothly around the molded sprockets for a consistent radius. When the belt is joined endless, a scraper can also be used. Molded sprockets offer a cost savings and reduce lead times. These sprockets are now in stock. Please contact Habasit Customer Care today for availability and lead time.
