Some foods are oily, greasy or wet. Some are carried frozen, some steaming hot. Many leave juices, acids, or particles that can stain or contaminate. Some foods grind at a belt cover and wear it away. Because different foods behave so differently, Great Lakes Belting and Supply Corporation of West Michigan and Indiana offers a wide selection of lightweight carcasses and specially-compounded covers designed to deal with a variety of conditions. All meet the very latest FDA and USDA requirements for food, drugs and cosmetics.

In every situation, it's important to weigh original cost against expected service life to determine which belt will be the most cost-effective. For these reasons, Great Lakes Belting and Supply Corporation of West Michigan and Indiana gives you an ample range of fabrics, weights and textures.
