PTFE coated solid woven glass belting is widely used within food manufacturing because of its non stick nature. It is ideally used when cooking foods that would have a tendency to stick to hot cooking platens. the production of oil and fat during the cooking cycle has always created a serious problem because all coated PTFE glass fabrics are prone to developing micro-cracks. In a short period of time, fat penetrates through the PTFE coating and is soaked up by the glass yarns.
Subsequent reuse of the belt reheats the fat which then begins to carbonise. This leads to the product sticking to the belt surface and rejection. Typically we offer (GRILL PREMIUM RB30 or GRILL STANDARD TCG010R) Crack free for superior performance .
Contact Grilling Machines
Contact grilling machines using (GRILL PREMIUM RB30) or (GRILL STANDARD TCG010R) style belts to carry food products over heated platens and effect a continuous cooking process. A broad range of products are cooked using this process including a variety of meats ( in particular meat balls ), pancakes, fish and eggs. Food like bacon and burgers are also mass cooked and require a belt that can withstand this aggressive environment.
This would normally require a belt with a high PTFE content for good release. Our red PTFE fabric high Performance Series is specifically engineered to maximise conveyor belt life, while minimising downtime in the most demanding belting environments. These fabrics are manufactured from PTFE coated woven fiberglass substrates. GORTEF belts provide an extremely smooth, non-stick surface, excellent release and restivity from oils, grease and chemicals.
Our coating formulation was developed to prevent oils and grease from eating into the belt fabrics. GORTEF fabrics are excellent for use in the most challenging applications, such as food processing belts where there is a high level of grease and oils, or the processing of sticky or gummy materials. GORTEF belts have outperformed and lasted longer than standard competitive products.
GORTEF are supplying a range of PTFE Cast Film Laminated Composites (GRILL PREMIUM RB30) for applications in the food industry requiring superior release properties, excellent dimensional stability, thermal conductivity and flexibility at continuous working temperatures up to +260 °C for contact grill belt and flour tortilla applications.
Many food products are dried or baked on GORTEF TEFLON COATED GLASS and KEVLAR belts. In many cases open mesh fabrics are used to improve air circulation. For the processing of powdering type products, solid fabrics must be used. Products processed include.

Microwave Cooking GORTEF TEFLON COATED GLASS and KEVLAR belts absorb very little microwave energy provided they are kept clean. Several food processors use GORTEF TCG010 or TCG9003K style belts to convey product through microwave ovens, in many cases to control water content of the final product.
The ability of GORTEF TEFLON COATED GLASS and KEVLAR belts to work with microwave equipment is of big benefit. No other readily available material is compatible with microwave and can operate at temperatures of 260C.
Drying of all types of food products using radio
frequency (RF) ovens. GORTEF TEFLON COATED GLASS and KEVLAR FABRICS provide very low electrical loss performance. KEVLAR typically offers superior performance.
