Are plastic flat top chains resistant to moisture and humidity?

Plastic flat top chains are conveyor belt systems made from plastic materials that feature a flat, solid surface with evenly spaced, interlocking modules. These chains are designed to transport various products and materials in a wide range of industries, providing a reliable and efficient conveying solution.

Versatility

Plastic flat top chains are versatile and can be used for a variety of applications, including food and beverage, manufacturing and assembly, logistics and distribution, pharmaceutical and medical, packaging and printing, warehousing and distribution centers, mining and aggregates, airport baggage handling, recycling and waste management, and e-commerce and fulfillment centers.

Durability

Plastic flat top chains are durable and can withstand harsh environments, as they are resistant to moisture and humidity. They are also resistant to chemicals and can operate in extreme temperatures.

Cleanliness

Plastic flat top chains offer a clean conveying solution, as they do not require lubrication and are easy to clean. This makes them ideal for applications where hygiene is critical, such as in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

Flexibility

Plastic flat top chains are flexible and can be configured to meet specific conveying requirements. They can be designed to accommodate curves, inclines, declines, and complex layouts.

Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains operate quietly, making them a preferred choice for applications where noise levels must be kept to a minimum.

Smooth Product Transfer

Plastic flat top chains provide a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of damage or disruption. They also prevent product slippage or misalignment during transportation.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains offer high traction, ensuring that products are transported smoothly and efficiently.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are cost-effective and offer a low total cost of ownership. They require minimal maintenance and have a long service life.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance, as they do not require lubrication and are easy to clean. This reduces downtime and maintenance costs.

Reduced Product Jams

Plastic flat top chains reduce the risk of product jams, as their interlocking design ensures a stable and secure conveying surface.

Applications

Plastic flat top chains are used in a variety of industries, including:

  1. Food and Beverage
  2. Manufacturing and Assembly
  3. Logistics and Distribution
  4. Pharmaceutical and Medical
  5. Packaging and Printing
  6. Warehousing and Distribution Centers
  7. Mining and Aggregates
  8. Airport Baggage Handling
  9. Recycling and Waste Management
  10. E-commerce and Fulfillment Centers

Each application has unique conveying requirements that can be met with plastic flat top chains.

How They Work

Plastic flat top chains operate on the principle of interlocking modules that form a continuous, flat surface. The chains are driven by sprockets that engage with the chain links, causing them to move and transport products along the conveyor system. The interlocking design ensures a stable and secure conveying surface, preventing product slippage or misalignment during transportation. The flat top surface provides a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of damage or disruption.
