- Customer background
Pizza company in the US providing schools and institutions nationwide with quality pizza since 1942.
Toppings conveyor conveys raw pizza dough under systems that apply sauce and a variety of toppings to the pizza.
Two different (competitor’s) belts provoked problems: One had premature wearing on the surface while the other had poor tracking and tension. Both belts lasted between 8 – 12 months and looked very dirty and unclean in a short time frame.

F-5EXCT TPU food conveyor and processing belt
Habasit offered F-5EXCT. This belt type has an excellent TPU cover material that is abrasion resistant and also resistant to premature wear.Since this product falls under our high quality food line, we knew tension and tracking would be excellent based on the orientation of the PET tension fabrics within the belt structure.We also offered edge sealing of the belt to help reduce edge wear.
- The blue belt immediately helped with the cosmetic issues - Sanitation Department was more satisfied with appearance after extended running time
- Maintenance time was reduced significantly - perfect belt tracking, no longer cleaning and unwinding strands of fabric from pulleys due to edge wear
- Total lifetime was extended to 26 months versus the previous 12 months
- Operating costs were reduced and a better ROI was achieved from switching to the Habasit product
