PosiClean® Food Grade Belting

PosiClean® is a line of easy to clean urethane food processing belting designed with sealed tension members and drive teeth across the full belt width. The belt can be cleaned-in-place with resulting savings in water, labor and waste water disposal when compared to plastic modular belting. The tension members eliminate belt stretch, a common cause of belt failure in long length applications.

Application Characteristics 

  • Replacement for plastic modular belt and fabric belt 
  • - Quieter operation 
    - Easier cleaning 
    - No hinges or pins to break and contaminate product 
  • Designed for clean-in-place protocol 
  • Less labor and cleaning water than plastic modular belt

PosiClean® Sprockets 

  • Split Sprockets 

  • - Split for easier/more cost efficient drive conversions 
    -Simply cut off existing sprockets 
    -Design takes 40mm & 1.5” square shafts 

  • Solid Sprockets more suited to new applications for reduced cost
  • Fastening Options

    For Field Welding 

    Mectrol has developed the “split tooth” method 

    - 2.4 to 3.8 times the weld surface area (depending on the pitch) when compared to welding just the base belt 

    - Positions weld away from belt flex area


    This pin fastened method meets low to medium load requirements without welding to achieve the maximum allowable tension. 

    Belt ends are prepared at the factory and the belt is joined by a single pin inserted after the belt is placed in position on the equipment. 

    This “living” fastening solution allows for removal and replacement of the belt as often as desired – without ever having to weld. 

    Other Mechanical Fasteners 

    From wire hooks to metal staples, standard conveyor fasteners are available when contamination is not an issue.
