Patented Compact Grid™ is the Most Advanced, and Newest Offering in the Metal Conveyor Belting industry! (U.S. Patent Number 7,278,534)

Compact Grid
Designed to handle smaller, delicate products.

Compact Grid provides the ultimate in product support and at the same time, its open mesh design offers superior flow through properties to accommodate a wide variety of processing operations. In addition, Compact Grid is designed to outperform, many competitive metal belt offerings, that are clunky, heavy, chain driven, and difficult to clean. Wire Belt has engineered this product as a solution for any application where a lightweight, easy to clean, and high performance metal conveyor belt is a must.

Compact Grid’s patented design provides processors with a new, more efficient, option for moving smaller products through operations that require maximum carrying support, but still need lightweight, open, and easy to clean carrying surfaces. This belt was designed specifically to replace many competitive offerings in both PLASTIC MODULAR and METAL BALANCED WEAVE designs.
Improved belt life was a key consideration in the design of this conveyor mesh. Compact Grid’s tough framework provides maximum strength, to improve longevity, under significant loading. The concept of reduced maintenance costs and fewer replacements over time was truely an integral part of the engineering process for this newest of conveyor belts. In addition, the belt was designed with a simplified splicing operation in mind. The process is a straightforward hook to loop maneuver that allows for fast and easy initial installations, as well as quick replacements.

If you’re looking for a belt that can take the heat, Compact Grid can meet the challenge. If you’re transferring product directly from a cooking or baking operation onto a cooling conveyor Compact Grid will optimize your process. Its 70% open surface area and superior flow-through characteristics provide improved convection, and can help carry heat away from your products at rapid speeds. In addition, its made of Stainless Steel, so you’ll have no worries about it catching fire, drooping, slipping, sagging, or even sweating (accumulating moisture droplets) while cooling your products. Because of its superior flow through (5 times less resistance to flow-through than most plastic modular belts), it is ideal for many operations in the food processing industry, including:

  • Cooking
  • Baking
  • Cooling
  • Frying
  • Draining
  • Washing & rinsing
  • Freezing (CO2 or N2)

Compact Grid offers a rugged framework and has a flat and supportive, yet open, surface design that makes it the perfect solution most any high-volume, high ouput process.

Bottom Line! CompactGrid brings you the next level of flexibility and value. It is focused on total cost of ownership bringing efficiency, cleanability, and performance to the forefront of your operations… and like all of other products, “When you buy a Wirebelt… we go with it!

Compact Grid Features and Benefits

Lighter Weight, Positive Drive, and More Open Surface Area Bring Efficiency to the Highest Level!
  • Lighter weight than many competitive conveyor belt options
  • Compact Grid’s positive drive design eliminates expensive and heavy chain edged conveying configurations
  • Require Less horsepower to drive than many competitive metal belts providing lower energy consumption in the drive systems
More open area provides optimum cleanability
  • Compact Grid’s 70% open area makes it easy to clean and keep clean
  • It’s Clean in place design means no clean out of place (C.O.P) tanks required
  • No “link-barrels” or hinge pins like plastic modular belts
  • No double layer woven wire helixes like balanced weave wire belts
  • No concealed spaces for product particles to be trapped, and no places for pathogens, and allergens to hide
Engineered for performance
  • Framework designed for optimal product support
  • Built for maximum flow through for superior convection
  • Ideal for cooking applications like frying and baking
  • Designed for high speed cooling and drying operations
  • Open surface area allows for excellent flow-through and drainage in coating operations
Designed with total cost in mind
  • No complicated, costly tracking systems required as with friction drive belts
  • Provides an improved and tighter wrap capability than most friction drive systems for enhanced conveyor-to-conveyor transfers minimizing chance of product yield loss in high speed operations
  • Engineered to outlast other types of conveyor belting in medium duty performance category
  • Excellent convection capabilities optimize performance and energy consumption in cooking and cooling operations
  • Straightforward splicing operation speeds installations and replacements, reducing maintenance time and lowering labor costs
