Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains are quiet and produce minimal noise during operation, ensuring a comfortable and safe working environment for operators.

Smooth Product Transfer

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

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains provide high traction and grip for product transportation, ensuring minimal product slippage or movement during conveying. They are ideal for use in applications where product stability and control are critical.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are cost-effective and provide a low total cost of ownership over their service life. They require minimal maintenance, reducing downtime and repair costs, and are energy-efficient, reducing operating costs.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance and are easy to install and replace. They do not require lubrication, reducing maintenance costs and eliminating the risk of product contamination.

Reduced Product Jams

Plastic flat top chains are designed to prevent product jams and stoppages during conveying. They feature a flat, solid surface with evenly spaced, interlocking modules, ensuring a stable and secure conveying surface and preventing product accumulation or blockages.

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.
