Megadyne presents the XMD timing belt : segments are detectable by X-ray and Metaldetectors

Metal & X-Ray Detectable Food Contact Timing Belts or MXD-Timing belts

The Megadyne revolution in Food Grade belts

Food Safety, First and Foremost

The most frequent request from the Food industry is that the highest possible Food Safety and hygiene standards be maintained at every stage of the production process, from primary production lines all the way through to packaging.

One of the greatest nightmares that food companies have is that their food products will be contaminated by foreign bodies.

Fragments from broken belt elements represent a major contamination risk and that’s why Megadyne developed the XMD timingbelts, to meet this Food Safety market requirement!

Detectable belts are efficient tools for decreasing the risk of contamination from belt fragments. They allow detector systems to FILTER OUT ANY FOREIGN BODIES resulting from broken belt parts and MAKE CONTAMINATION VISIBLE before any product leaves for the consumer market.

Megadyne XMD Detectable Food Contact timing belts are the latest breakthrough trend sweeping the entire Food belting market: get on board! See how these belts can help your company improve the Food Safety standards!

• Efficiency levels for detection cannot be guaranteed by Megadyne or by any OEM

XMD FC test cards are the only tools that can prove the real-time functionality of detection systems and establish minimum detectable size.

• A number of variables involved in the detection of foreign bodies by X-Ray systems means that test cards may be less efficient Use detectable test cards to:

• This proves that detection is taking place

• This recognizes the minimumdetectable belt and cleat fragment size

This is new game changer

Belt and cleat fragments from all Megalinear XMD and Megaflex XMD belts can be spotted by metal and x-ray detectors, thanks to a special compound used in the manufacture of these timing belts and their accessories.

Therefore, any Food Contact Timing Belts (open end, endless joined, and truly endless) constructed with this compound are detectable.

This Food Safety feature is in addition to other special hygienic design features that include sealed edges and the use of blue as a contrast colour.

Therefore, all Food Contact Timing Belts (open end, endless joined, and truly endless) constructed with this compound are detectable!
