Different Belt Features Ammeraal Beltech brand bars

Synthetic Belts are produced using different materials, thicknesses, colors etc. Therefore each belt has different features such as high grip, non-fray or wear-resistance for example.

Food Grade belts are primarily used in the Food Industry and the Tobacco Industry. Flame-retardant and energy efficient belts are a sought-after feature in the Airports and Logistics Industries. 

Food Grade

For the Food Industry, we manufacture belts for use in high or low temperatures, with excellent resistance to oils and fats and superb release characteristics.

To ensure food safety and to avoid any food contamination, a complete range of belts is available in compliance with:

  • the latest EU regulation EC 1935/2004, EU 10/2011 and amendments
  • food contact surface FDA standards
Food Grade


Ammeraal Beltech developed belts with antimicrobial additives to assist in reducing the number of microbes on food contact surfaces. This also reduces the risk of food contamination - ensuring optimum adherence to your food safety standards and supports the implementation of your ISO 22000 requirements (previously HACCP).

Our AntiMicrobial (AM) belting range will help to keep the belt cleaner and reduce build-up of bacteria on the belt surface.


Stronger and tougher than ever.

Our non-fray belts run and remain intact longer and deliver even better food hygiene by reducing fabric fray contamination.

Our KleenEdge and AmSeal Belts tackle contamination risks that may occur from belt edge wear. The belt construction is designed in such a way that the high strength reinforcement fabric is held securely together in a tough non-cracking thermoplastic polyurethane seal.


Knife-edge transfer

Particularly when conveying small goods, the transfer between 2 belts must be as short as possible. In this case it is common to use knife-edges.

Knife-edges are used in material handling, primarily on conveyor belts for the Food Industry and for the Beverage Industry. More tension is needed to flex the belt over a knife-edge which causes more wear. This calls for premium quality belts.

Dectyl Food Grade Synthetic Belts: making food production safer!

A great step forward in Food Safety on risks of foreign bodies.

We support the Food Industry in protecting consumers from the risk of pollution from broken plastic belt parts. Dectyl belts are like an insurance, protecting your brand reputation, preventing expensive product recalls.

Low Noise, Flame-retardant, Impact Resistant

We offer low noise belts for better working environments capable of high-speed power turns and extremely reliable flame-retardant* belts with extra long-wearing top covers.

Our high impact-resistant belts are able to withstand heavy shock loads. 


Low Noise, Flame-retardant, Impact Resistant


Working closely with OEMs we have developed a range of self-tracking belts showing superior performance on fixed centre conveyors, two-way running conveyors and wide, short centre belts. Tracking of a belt in these situations is always very difficult.

  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Compact conveyor design
  • Less energy consumption
  • Easy and quick installation

High grip

Our high grip belts are specifically designed to increase the friction between the belt and the products being carried. This is often needed for inclined transport or in slippery conditions.

High grip characteristics can be obtained by using different materials and/or using certain profiles (embossing).

To give you an impression of the practically unlimited possibilities, a selection of popular profiles are shown here.

High grip


We offer a range of wear-resistant belts that are specifically designed to handle even the toughest conditions you can think of.

Wear-resistance is one of the most important properties that determine the life expectancy of a conveyor belt.


Energy saving

To ensure that belts run as efficiently as possible on conveyor systems, we present a series of belts that offer the potential of a considerable power consumption reduction.

Belt selection is a very important factor in saving energy, but not the only one.

Ammeraal Beltech’s ‘Energy Saving Concept’ is based on 3 pillars that influence the power demands of a conveyor:

  • Conveyor design – in order to get the basics right
  • Belt selection – in other words, a fit for purpose belt
  • Drum motor sizing – not too big (wastes energy) and not too small (will be overworked)
