Specialist conveyor belt supplier Rydell supplies Ammeraal Beltech’s
AntiMicrobial conveyor belting designed for enhanced hygiene in food
Ammeraal Beltech’s AntiMicrobial belting range uses non-migrating
materials – a technology based on silver ions. The belt is proven safe for
human contact and effective against a broad spectrum of micro-organisms.
AntiMicrobial belts will assist in reducing bacterial count on the belt;
implementing HACCP programs; enhancing hygiene; and inhibiting the growth of
The AntiMicrobial (AM) belting range provided with Amseal closed belt
edges will help to keep the belt cleaner and also reduce build-up of bacteria
on the belt surface. Of course, maintaining and improving of cleaning
procedures still remains essential.
Food safety technology
The AntiMicrobial covers are free of taint and meet top Food Grade
standard requirements with no migration of additives.
All the migration tests are in line with the requirements of FDA.
AntiMicrobial belts are suitable for contact with aqueous, acidic and fatty
foodstuffs according to the requirements of EC 1935/2004 directive.
AntiMicrobial belts with non-migrating technology inhibit the growth of
bacteria on or in the belt. Silver ions bind and make inactive the proteins
inside cells, disrupting the microbial cells’ ability to generate energy and
causing them to die quickly.
The silver ion process is permanent, non-migrating and active against a
wide range of micro-organisms such as Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa
and Lysteria monocytogenes.
