Applications of Plastic Flat Top Chains Image

Durability

Plastic flat top chains are highly durable and resistant to wear and tear, making them ideal for use in harsh environments and heavy-duty applications.

Cleanliness

Plastic flat top chains are easy to clean and maintain, which is important for industries that require a high level of sanitation, such as the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries.

Flexibility

Plastic flat top chains can be customized to meet specific application requirements, such as width, length, and curvature, providing a flexible conveying solution.

Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains operate quietly, reducing noise pollution in the workplace.

Smooth Product Transfer

The flat top surface of plastic flat top chains provides a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of damage or disruption.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains provide high traction, ensuring that products are securely transported along the conveyor system.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are cost-effective compared to other types of conveyor systems, such as stainless steel chains or belt conveyors.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.

Reduced Product Jams

The interlocking design of plastic flat top chains prevents product jams and blockages, improving efficiency and productivity.

How Plastic Flat Top Chains 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.
