Aramid reinforced monolithic TPU conveyor belts

Habasit Cleandrive aramid reinforced monolithic TPU conveyor belts are recognized for their safe and hygienic food processing performance. Their significant advantages include a uniform surface without sink marks, and embedded cords that guarantee true belt length without creep. The belts’ advanced technology and design meet the most stringent hygiene requirements while delivering exceptional performance, reliability, and cost-efficiency.

Habasit Cleandrive belts reduce the design work required when constructing a conveyor. Their zero-tension belt design eliminates the need for special active sprocket engagement, which both reduces complexity and cost, and extends the belt lifetime due to less abrasion. The premium TPU material offers extraordinary hydrolysis and microbiological resistance. The belts’ closed smooth surface is essential for wet applications.

Belt design

The fully extruded monolithic belt design of Habasit Cleandrive belts has no fabric members that could fray during use and pose a food safety risk. The solid yet flexible belt design is also free of the cavities, joining rods and crevices normally found in hinged belts, making Habasit Cleandrive belts very easy to clean.

Habasit Cleandrive conveyor belts have a flexible yet strong construction that permits the smallest possible pulley diameters. This minimizes product damage and product losses in transfer situations and improves processing yield.

Hygienic design plays an increasingly important role in food-safe production. Smooth, rounded shapes make it easy to remove foodstuff residues – even on the reverse of the belt.

Our proprietary manufacturing process enables us to produce Habasit Cleandrive belts completely free of sink marks. This facilitates increased
scraper efficiency, since residual products on the belt surface can be safely removed by the scraper.

Discover Habasit Cleandrive belts

Habasit Cleandrive belts are manufactured in two versions: sprocket driven positive drive, and pulley driven friction drive, enabling them to cover a wide range of applications.

Positive drive belts

The Habasit Cleandrive belt design includes aramid cord reinforcement for dimensional stability. This permits continuous and reliable sprocket engagement, which results in reduced belt wear, maintenance, and downtime.

Zero tension means that no extra forces are required other than the tension provided by the belt’s tare weight to keep the drive bars properly engaged within the sprockets.


Positive drive belts are sprocket driven, with either drive bars or teeth positioned across the entire belt width at a certain pitch, or with lugs. Lugs are transverse interrupted drive bars, which are placed at certain distances along the belt’s running side to provide self-tracking.


Friction drive belts

The Habasit Cleandrive friction drive aramid reinforced monolithic conveyor belt delivers significant advantages compared to conventional conveyor belts in dry and wet applications.

Flexible and strong construction permits the smallest possible pulley diameters, thus minimizing product damage and loss in narrow transfers.


With friction drive belts there is no positive engagement with the driving pulley. The pulley transfers the drive force from the motor to the belt, while friction between the pulley and the belt surface ensures power transmission.

How reinforcement solves challenges of monolithic conveyor belt designs

Often referred to as “solid” or “food-safe” belts, monolithic belts are made of a single material, typically thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). Combining the closed surface design of a traditional fabric belt with the wash-readiness of a plastic modular belt, monolithic belts deliver exceptional cleanability and food safety performance, making them a popular choice for hygiene-intense food processing applications.
