Frequently Asked Questions

ProClean Vs. Volta SuperDrive™

ProClean vs Volta thermoplastic, Is the material composition similar?

ProClean and Volta thermoplastic belts are made from extruded polyurethane that are similar in hardness and performance. While the recipe/formulation may vary slightly, both are easy to scrape and durable for demanding food processing applications. 

  • Compatible with HACCP systems and standard hygiene/sanitation regimens (CIP)
  • USDA/FDA/USDA Dairy certified and conforms to EC regulations
Can I use ProClean belts without changing my current set up?

As long as you stay with the same positive drive belt style (drive bar, flat belt, center drive) and the same pitch you do not need to retrofit your system. The design and pitch of the ProClean belts are close enough to engage so you can easily drop them into your current set up without changing your sprockets or pulleys. Although you may want to change them for hygienic reasons.

If you are currently using a fabric/flat belt you can switch to a ProClean friction drive thermoplastic flat belt with out changing your current set up.  You just need to make sure to choose the right belt thickness that will work with your current pulley diameters.  Our application consultants can help you choose. 

How fast can I get a ProClean belt from Midwest Rubber?

Typical lead time is 1 week for all ProClean styles.  Flat belts with no fabrication can ship in 3-4 days.  If you are down or have an emergency, our team will do everything we can to get you a belt within 24 hours.
