How do I ensure proper lubrication of Plastic Multiflex Chains?

In the realm of material handling and power transmission, plastic multiflex chains have emerged as a versatile and effective solution for conveying a wide range of products and materials. These chains, constructed from durable thermoplastic materials such as polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP), offer a compelling combination of flexibility, strength, and low maintenance, making them well-suited for diverse applications.

Advantages of Plastic Multiflex Chains

  • Lightweight
  • Flexibility
  • High Strength
  • Low Maintenance
  • Noise Reduction
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Cleanliness and Hygiene
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Versatility

Applications of Plastic Multiflex Chains

Plastic multiflex chains find application in various industries for the following purposes –

  1. Conveyor Systems
  2. Manufacturing and Assembly Lines
  3. Distribution and Warehousing
  4. Packaging and Bottling
  5. Material Sorting and Grading
  6. Cleanroom Environments

Working Principle

Plastic Multiflex Chains operates on the principle of interlocking modular units. The chain consists of individual plastic links or modules that are interconnected to form a continuous chain loop. Each module has built-in tabs or hinges that allow it to flex and articulate, providing flexibility in various directions.

The chain is driven by sprockets or sprocket wheels, which engage with the tabs on the modules and propel the chain forward. The modular design allows for easy assembly, disassembly, and customization of the chain to suit specific conveyor layouts and requirements.

As the sprockets rotate, they engage with the modules, causing them to articulate and move along the conveyor path. The interlocking design ensures smooth and synchronized movement of the chain, allowing for the efficient transfer of products or materials from one point to another.

How to select the appropriate Plastic Multiflex Chains?

When selecting the appropriate plastic multiflex chains, the following factors should be considered –

  1. Load Capacity
  2. Application Environment
  3. Chain Material
  4. Chain Profile and Design
  5. Environmental Factors
  6. Conveyor System Layout
  7. Maintenance and Cleanability
  8. Cost Considerations
  9. Supplier and Support
