Product Applications

• Spiral Freezer Belt

ExactaStack® Standard Belt

Available Options:
  • Wire Mesh Overlays

    Mesh is specified using the standard designation for existing systems, X-Y-Z, as shown.

    Standard mesh overlay for ExactaStack™ is a right-hand wind, unilateral weave (see illustration) comprised of two mating spirals. The first terminates with round pigtails on the leading side of the spiral. The second terminates with oval pigtails on the trailing side of the spiral and has one less loop across the width of the belt such that the oval pigtails are nested within the round pigtails on the adjacent spiral. The pigtails of both spirals are installed on the connecting rod joining the links. A washer is installed between the link and the spirals on the collapsing side only.

  • Special Wire Mesh Overlays

    Typically, special mesh configurations can be made to match existing belts with nonstandard mesh overlay. Please consult Ashworth engineering.

  • Special Plastic Overlay

    Plastic mesh with nominal 13 mm (0.5”) openings is available. Maximum operating temperature is 180°F. Plastic mesh is not suitable for applications where caustic cleaners are used. Please consult Ashworth engineering.

We purchased a new ExactaStack™ self-stacking belt and ExactaDrive® components for a complete retrofit of our existing system which was installed by Ashworth Factory Service Technicians. The Ashworth Factory Service crew did a great job and our system has been running well ever since.
