Application: Onion Conveying
Problem: An onion topper machine, where the tops are cut off, used a competitor’s Twin A profile belt for the prototype and it was not working. The recommended install tension could not be used because the shafts were not heavy enough.
Solution: Fenner Drives’ design and engineering teams worked with the customer to find the best solution for the application. Fenner Drives Application Engineers recommended a completely new profile using the Eagle Orange 85 polyurethane belt. By working with Fenner Drives Application Engineers the customer was able to find the right belt for their application.
- Post-curing process provided the right amount of tension
- Able to achieve the customer requirement of approximately 90% accuracy in cutting
- Belt does not stain the onion
The Eagle Orange 85 is the most widely-used general purpose non-reinforced polyurethane belt. It is manufactured from FDA compliant materials and is easily welded on site with a Fenner Drives Butt Welding Kit.
