      Volta Belting logoThe homogeneous no-ply construction of Volta belting eliminates the need to have edge capping and its non-absorbent material makes the belts bacteria-resistant and impenetrable by most chemicals. These advantages create a belt that performs well in a variety of food processing and general conveying environments.

      Volta belting options from Apache include food, positive drive, general conveying, V and Round (VAR), and Haul-off solutions.

      Volta Haul-off Belts

      Haul-off belts, also known as puller belts, are pulley driven belts that run parellel to each other and exert pressure to product sitting between the belts. These belts work in pairs to grip and haul product through the machine, and can be custom made with covers specifically suited to the product being hauled/conveyed.

      Volta's haul-off belts can handle material for printing, labeling, and packaging, and are ideal for rolling shaped profiles like tubes and rods. They can be produced with either a flat or poly-v base, depending on customer requirements.
