Modular belt conveyors manufactured in the UK by Spaceguard
Modular belt conveyors by Spaceguard provide a reliable solution for a wide variety of conveyor applications.
The positive driven plastic modular belt conveyor is able to be configured to suit a wide range of products. It is also very versatile with the capability to transport items horizontally, up inclines and round corners. We also manufacture heavy duty modular conveyors for more arduous environments.
The hygienic design of the medium duty conveyor is also ideal for many areas including industrial and direct food applications. It is particularly suitable in environments where after use cleaning and wash down is required. This is especially important in food processing for example.
Our team is available to discuss all your modular belt conveyor needs. They will happily advise you on the best solution to suit your requirements.

What are the advantages of using modular belt conveyors?
The materials used to construct the belt are durable, chemical resistant, and also suitable for exposure to hot and cold temperatures (-60°C to 170°C).
If a modular belt does become damaged, it is very easy and economical to replace a small section of the belt rather than having to replace the whole belt. The parts of a modular belt link together with pins, somewhat similar to the linking methods used in metal watch straps. These links can be removed or replaced with ease and at low cost.
The modular belt also differs from a regular conveyor belt in that it does not have tracking issues. As the drive sprockets interlock with the belt itself there is little opportunity for the belt to shift or slip out of alignment when lateral force is applied.
The belt can be removed entirely for disinfecting and cleaning purposes within just minutes.
The modular belt can also be used in wet environments. One additional benefit of using modular belts in wet environments is that as the belt construction allows for air & liquids to pass through. This makes modular belt conveyors particularly suited for draining or drying products prior to packing.
Conveyor bends and corners also become easily achievable through the use of a modular belt. Similarly flights (also known as cleats) can simply be attached to the modular belting. A flight is added to a conveyor to prevent fall back of items when travelling upwards. In contrast, regular conveyor belts flights have to be fused to the belt material itself.
The modular belt conveyor is incredibly versatile as it is available with a range of belt material options. This allows for a wider range of objects to be transported. A regular belt conveyor for example is likely to become damaged over time when transporting sharp items. As the modular belting is constructed from plastic components it is much more suited for sharp item transport. This is why modular belts are often found in meat processing facilities.
