what are Ecocleat® cleats? 

In the world of industrial conveyors, innovation is a constant driver. It is vital to move products safely and efficiently without causing damage, especially when it comes to soft and fragile products within the agricultural industry. This is where Probelt® comes in, with their revolutionary Ecocleat® cleats redefining standards in this sector.

A Seamless Integration

Probelt® has positioned itself as a pioneer in conveyor belt technology with their unique manufacturing process for hot vulcanised Ecocleat® cleats. These carriers are seamlessly integrated with each Probelt® base belt, meaning there is no chance of the cleats coming loose. This is a crucial factor for companies handling soft and fragile products within the agricultural industry.

Product-friendly Design

A distinctive feature of Ecocleat® cleats is their unique design with rounded tops. This rounded shape makes them particularly product-friendly for delicate agricultural products such as potatoes, onions, sugar beet and carrots. Instead of rough edges that can cause damage, Ecocleat® cleats ensure that your valuable produce remains safe and undamaged during transport.

Durability and reliability

One of the biggest advantages of using Ecocleat® cleats is their durability and reliability. Thanks to the innovative manufacturing process and advanced automation techniques, these carriers can withstand the most challenging conditions. They adhere firmly to the base belt, eliminating concerns about cleats coming loose due to poor adhesion or weather and product influences.

In addition, Ecocleat® cleats are less sensitive to drum diameters, allowing for flexibility in different configurations. This significantly extends the life of the cleats, resulting in higher conveyor reliability and lower maintenance costs.
