  • Recommended product


Subject or proposed solution

The new high quality Hard TPO (Polyolefin) conveyor belt PNB-12EITO has been tested successfully in the tobacco primary packaging department.

The Habasit conveyor belt PNB-12EITO is running successfully without any problems and could achieve a longer life-time than comparable conveyor belts usually achieve under these difficult circumstances.

Special structure of the belt shows almost no discoloration, caused by the so called “casing sauce”. Joining is also not affected by sauces and remain in very good condition through whole lifetime. These two facts speak much better for the better belt “closed” conveying surface (less porosity). During production process of the belt a new special water base impregnation of belt fabric was used, which increases much more belt safety in terms of direct contact with tobacco.

Tobacco processing requirements

Tobacco processing requires a wide range of conveyor and processing belts. These are key machine elements that ensure the efficient and trouble-free flow of materials through every manufacturing stage. Habasit has developed an extensive array of solutions to allow you to choose the best conveyor belt for each application. All our developments are focused on meeting the rising safety standards within the tobacco industry. As a result, our P-Line products fully comply with pyrolysis regulations and FDA guidelines.

The innovative P-Line

This comprehensive product range of polyolefin-coated belts for the tobacco industry is now extended by products with a new thermoplastic polyester elastomer coating. “P” stands for:

  • Polyolefin and Polyester – the raw materials used
  • Pyrolysis compliant
  • Physiologically safe
  • Pure coatings and product construction – since there are no bonding layers or adhesives, when burning takes place no dangerous substances are set free, ensuring an environmentally friendly solution
  • Polyvalent – these belts can be used in a wide variety of applications in addition to tobacco fabric-based conveyor and processing belts

Specifically developed for the tobacco industry using the unique features of TPO and TPEE coating.
