Can your current conveyor system handle heavy-duty jobs with speed and efficiency?

Big jobs can take time. And without the right conveyor system, they can take lots of manpower too.

Can Your Current Conveyor System Handle Heavy-Duty Jobs with Speed and Efficiency?
Don’t Sacrifice Efficiency and Safety to Keep Your Production Line On Track.

Don’t sacrifice efficiency and safety to keep your production line on track.

When moving large, heavy loads, worker safety is always of great concern. One mishap can send someone to the hospital, and can send your production line into chaos. Chain conveyor systems’ capacity to handle large, heavy loads is useful for industries like:

Warehouse or shipping/distribution center
Order fulfillment
Food and Beverage

The Right Conveyor Chain for the Right Job

Plastic Conveyor Chain

Plastic Conveyor Chain

Conveyor chains made from plastic are much lighter than their metal counterparts. This allows them to run more efficiently because they weigh less and put less strain on the motors moving the chains. Businesses ranging from electronics to food have increased productivity using plastic conveyor chains.
Chain Disc Conveyor Designs

Chain Disc Conveyor Designs

Chain disc conveyors work well when moving dry bulk solids. They’re easy to use, maintain, and repair when needed. They also use an innovative, enclosed design to keep materials safe.
Drag Chain Conveyor Systems

Drag Chain Conveyor Systems

A drag conveyor is made up of wooden or steel plates which connect to a continuous metal chain. The plates are “dragged” through a rectangular, trough-like space to move the chain.

Three Simple Steps to Take the Guesswork Out of Your Conveyor System Needs

Frequently Asked Questions

Are chains lubricated in a drag conveyor?

Yes. Drag conveyors often use welded steel chains, which need routine lubrication to reduce wear. Performing routine maintenance like this will extend the drag conveyor’s lifespan.

Can Conveyor Chains Snap?

Yes. Chain failure can be categorized into three different groups.

  • Tensile: This happens when the chain holds too much pressure. As a result, it stretches out and malfunctions.
  • Fatigue: Using chain conveyor systems as intended, without extra pressures, can lead to fatigue. Over time, microscopic cracks develop on the link plates and side bars. These cracks get larger until the chain snaps.
  • Wear: Friction between the pin and the bushing causes the chain to elongate and stretch out. It no longer grips the gears properly and causes the entire belt to malfunction.

Do Chains in Conveyors Need to Roll or Slide?

Conveyor chains can either roll or slide. Both are great mechanical options for a horizontal, straight route. When the chain slides, it rests on the edge of its plates. When rolling, the chain rests on the rollers. Particular uses will dictate implementation.
