Ashworth Bros. Inc., Winchester, Va., says the Baking Industry Sanitation Standards Committee (BISSC) formally approved and verified Ashworth's Omni-Pro® FlexLite, a strong and lightweight belt for conveying pans, trays, and large products.

Ashworth says the belt features a patented Omni-Pro® design, which is a durable, lightweight, and very open 1.5” x 3” (fixed loop) flat wire overlay. This means Omni-Pro® FlexLite improves efficiency with increased carrying capacity, greater air circulation, and a spiral/turn-curve tension rating of 400 lbs. for 100,000 cycles, vs. competing belts that rate for 50,000 cycles, officials say.

Omni-Pro® FlexLite incorporates all of the Omni-Pro® features that reduce maintenance costs and downtime, and by meeting the strict design criteria for BISSC certification, the belt proves to be easily cleaned to reduce sanitation costs. Turn ratios range from 1.6 to 2.5 and belt widths are available in even widths from 24 to 60 inches. -- Ashworth Bros Inc.
