Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Belts
Wrightfield manufacture a range of wire belt conveyors that utilise stainless steel wire mesh belts. These belts are ideal for confectionary, doughnut production, bakery, and other suitable industries. Conveyors are fully bespoke and manufactured to your exact specifications. This gives you optimum flexibility in the design of your conveyor system. We are able to use many different types of wire belt, depending on the type of application.
Typically we use a hygienic box section construction using pressed 304 and 316 stainless steel for light duty applications. For heavier duty applications 304 and 316 stainless steel diamond box section are used
Stainless Steel Belting Improves Hygiene Standards
Use of stainless steel belting instead of modular plastic types can increase food conveyor hygiene standards in some cases.
Research in the USA and UK shows that, under production conditions, wire belting is more hygienic than plastic types for conveying vegetables, meat and fish. Where hygiene and ease of sanitation are important Stainless steel is preferable to plastic, especially in areas where accessibility and extended production runs present cleaning problems

Frequently Asked Questions on Modular Belt Conveyor Systems
1. Can modular belt conveyors be run on an incline? This depend on your product but usually up to 45 degrees can be achieved without flights…
Plastic modular belts are perfectly suited to going round bends and curves
They can be easily repaired ( in the event of a breakage) and extended should the need occur. This has the advantage that the plastic belts can be changed quickly.
There are three main industrial classes of belt conveyors; food processing conveyors, general material handling and bulk material handling.
The conveyor belt system you need will depend on what your transporting, the speed it…
A conveyor system is fundamentally an assembly of different conveyors ( they could be the same type within different production stages , or different types of conveyors) that are assembled together to transport materials (from start to finish) with the minimum of effort compared to doing the transporting the goods manually
Essentially a conveyor system comprises of a frame which supports the conveyor mechanism ( which could be either gravity fed or powered) .
Conveyor systems are used in a wide variety of industries as a standard item of mechanical handling equipment to move products, raw materials, food products, ingredients, goods, raw goods, and an almost limitless set of other materials from one location to another, usually within the same production area or building.
Because they remove a significant element of manual handling they are extremely handy for businesses that deal with bulky goods, heavy items, raw materials, and mass-production items.
