A new game changer

Belt and cleat fragments from all Megalinear XMD and Megaflex XMD belts can be spotted by metal and x-ray detectors, thanks to a special compound used in the manufacture of these timing belts and their accessories. Therefore, any Food Contact Timing Belts (open end, endless joined, and truly endless) constructed with this compound are detectable. This Food Safety feature is in addition to other special hygienic design features that include sealed edges and the use of blue as a contrast colour. Therefore, all Food Contact Timing Belts (open end, endless joined, and truly endless) constructed with this compound are detectable!

FC is the acronym for Food Contact

MEGALINEAR FC is the new belt from Megadyne for the food processing industry, made with food contact approved materials according to EU 1935/2004 standard and further update EU 10/2011; NSF/ANSI/3A 14159-3 certification, accepted and approved by USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
Due to their good chemical resistance and to the certified compounds for humid and dry food contact, this  belt is particularly recommended for food processing and packaging applications.


The new MEGALINEAR FC belt matches the power and precision for synchronous conveying (balanced tracking, low running tension and low vibration) meeting the criteria where food contact is required: MAXIMUM RELIABILITY, TOTAL HYGIENE.

Main components

01 / BODY
The body of the belt is dark  blue thermoset polyurethane 85 ShA.; no gap between teeth on drive side.

02 / CORD
The cord is in Kevlar: max. 50 cords in a 150 mm wide product.
