Bakers and snack manufacturers seek continuous production cycles that yield a high output of quality products while reducing costs through minimal downtime and longer belt life.

That’s why Berndorf Belt Technology recommends the CARBO 13 belt, which can accommodate operating temperatures up to 752°F because the steel goes through a complex heat treatment process to achieve the required tensile strength and surface composition. Plus, its dark black surface, acceptance of radiant heat, high thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion offer a reliable base for bakery products.

The Elgin, Ill.-based company’s belts operate between two drums ensuring precise tracking and belt straightness, thus resulting in less downtime and belt damage, which is essential for bakers, snack manufacturers and OEM bake oven producers.
