FGP Food Grade Precleaner
USDA-certified for meat, poultry, and dairy, the FGP Food Grade Precleaner is easy to install and maintain, and can be disassembled conveniently for regular cleaning and sanitisation. The FGP Precleaner works on any belt from 4" to 60" (100mm to 1500mm), and its blade is available in both white and blue FDA-approved food grade material.
Novitool® Amigo™ is a splice press for monolithic belts. It is a new concept in the combination of solid polyester and polyurethane conveyor belts, and produces high-quality splices in a fast and safe manner.
Engineered for precision belt splicing, the Amigo features a contactless heating process that splices the belt in less than a minute. The pre-heat function removes moisture from the belt ends, avoiding unwanted pinholes in the splices, which is especially important in the food industry from a hygienic perspective.
Complete with an integrated belt cutter for safer operation, the Amigo maintains accurate pitch control in two passes. The interchangeable belt templates are designed to ensure precise pitch splicing across various monolithic belt manufacturer styles.
Flexco invites attendees to check out their other products, including:
