Plastic Flat Top Chains Applications

Durability

Plastic flat top chains are made from high-quality plastic materials, making them resistant to wear, corrosion, and impact. They can withstand extreme temperatures and harsh environments without deteriorating or breaking down, ensuring a long service life for your conveyor system.

Cleanliness

Plastic flat top chains are easy to clean and sanitize, making them ideal for applications that require strict hygiene standards. They do not absorb moisture or harbor bacteria, providing a safe and clean conveying solution for your products.

Flexibility

Plastic flat top chains can flex and bend, allowing them to navigate through curves and inclines without compromising product transfer. They can also be customized to fit specific conveyor system requirements, providing a flexible and adaptable conveying solution.

Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains operate quietly, reducing noise pollution in the workplace. This makes them an ideal choice for applications that require a quiet environment, such as hospitals or research laboratories.

Smooth Product Transfer

Plastic flat top chains provide a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of damage or disruption. They can transport products without shaking or vibrating, ensuring a safe and reliable conveying solution.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains provide high traction, allowing them to transport products up inclines and declines without slipping or sliding. This ensures a safe and reliable conveying solution for your products.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are cost-effective, providing a reliable and efficient conveying solution at a lower cost compared to other conveyor systems. They require less maintenance and replacement, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance, reducing the cost and time associated with upkeep. They do not require lubrication or adjustment, ensuring a hassle-free and low-maintenance conveying solution.

Reduced Product Jams

Plastic flat top chains can transport products without jamming or getting stuck, reducing the risk of downtime and increasing productivity. They can transport products of various shapes and sizes without compromising product transfer.

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.
