Working Principle

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.

Importance of Sprockets

Sprockets play a crucial role in the operation of plastic flat top chains. They are specially designed to engage with the chain links and provide the driving force to move the conveyor system. The proper selection and installation of sprockets ensure smooth and efficient chain movement, preventing slippage or misalignment. The compatibility between sprockets and plastic flat top chains is essential for the overall performance and longevity of the conveyor system.
