As x-ray detection systems and plastic modular belts become more common in food processing and packaging operations, Habasit America has introduced a new POM+DX thermoplastic belting material that is visible to x-rays.
Suitable for direct food contact to help avoid contamination in accordance with FDA and EU regulations, the new POM-based material, modified for impact resistance, is ideal for red meat, poultry, fish and dairy operations. The new material is available in several Habasit belt styles and pitches from the M1100 series to the M6300 series.
