The majority of industrial conveyor applications occur in environments that are more or less room temperature. Shipping, crating, inspection, and others are all applications for which no special consideration of temperature is required.
For many others, however, extreme low temperatures or high temperatures are the norm, and specialty conveyor systems are needed to accommodate them. This post will focus on the latter: conveyors designed for high heat environments, and the solutions offered by mk North America.
There are a number of high temperature industrial applications that require specialty conveyor systems able to withstand extreme heat. Some of the most common include the following.
mk North America offers a number of specialty belt conveyors capable of withstanding high temperatures in applications like the ones above thanks to their highly modular, customizable design.
Depending on the specific application and temperatures involved, either aluminum or steel-framed conveyor systems might be recommended by mk’s engineering team. While either can be utilized for certain high temperature applications (depending on the specific heat involved), stainless steel conveyors like mk’s CleanMove systems are particularly useful for food processing thanks to their high sanitary rating.
Custom belting options for high temperature environments include the following:
Extremely high temperatures may present additional considerations when designing and manufacturing conveyors. For instance, standard UHMW-PE wear strip may need to be changed to a high-temp plastic like Teflon. Custom motors and motor sealing may also be required for certain temperatures.
