Plastic Modular Belting

Because of their construction conventional conveyor belts are not suitable for certain applications. Siegling Prolink plastic modular belts are an excellent solution in these cases: The material is rot-resistant, durable and physiologically safe (all standard materials used are FDA compliant). As a rule cleaning the belts is simple

Plastic Modular Belting – Siegling Prolink

Every belt's a specialist

The Siegling Prolink system consists of different series functionally designed for diverse conveying and processing tasks. Inserted connecting rods join the individual modules together making them flexible and endless.

This means:

  • variable widths and length
  • simple repair
  • low stocks

Existing machinery can be converted to Siegling Prolink easily. Apart from the standard colours, any colour is available on request.

Standard Materials

Siegling Prolink modules made of standard materials are FDA compliant.

Polyethylene (PE)

  • very good chemical resistance to acids and alkalis
  • very good release properties due to low surface tension
  • good friction and abrasion behaviour
  • extremely tough
  • low specific weight

Polypropylene (PP)

  • standard material for normal conveying applications
  • quite strong and stiff
  • good dynamic capacity
  • highly resistant to acids, alkalis, salts, alcohols
  • low specific weight
  • no risk of stress cracks forming

Polyoxymethylene/Polyacetal (POM)

  • very dimensionally stable
  • very strong and stiff
  • high chemical resistance to organic solvents
  • lower drag
  • very durable material
  • hard, incision-resistant surface

Stainless steel connecting rods are available.

Special Materials
