Advantages of Plastic Flat Top Chains

Versatility

Plastic flat top chains are used in various industries such as food and beverage, manufacturing and assembly, logistics and distribution, pharmaceutical and medical, packaging and printing, warehousing and distribution centers, mining and aggregates, airport baggage handling, recycling and waste management, e-commerce, and fulfillment centers.

Applications of Plastic Flat Top Chains

Durability

Plastic flat top chains are made from high-quality plastic materials that are resistant to wear, chemicals, and corrosion. They can withstand extreme temperatures and harsh environments, making them ideal for use in a wide range of industrial applications.

Cleanliness

Plastic flat top chains are easy to clean and maintain, making them ideal for use in industries where hygiene is of utmost importance, such as food and beverage and pharmaceuticals. They can be washed down with water and cleaning agents without the risk of contaminating the products being transported.

Flexibility

Plastic flat top chains can be designed and configured to suit different conveyor system layouts and requirements. They can be curved, inclined, or declined to fit tight spaces and complex conveying paths.

Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains generate less noise compared to metal chains, making them ideal for use in industries where noise reduction is necessary, such as airports and residential areas.

Smooth Product Transfer

Plastic flat top chains provide a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of damage or disruption to the products being transported. They ensure reliable and efficient conveying of products.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains have a high level of traction, making them ideal for use in applications where products need to be conveyed at high speeds or on inclines and declines.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are cost-effective and provide a reliable and efficient conveying solution that requires minimal maintenance and replacement costs.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance compared to metal chains. They do not require lubrication, and their interlocking design prevents product jams and misalignment.

Reduced Product Jams

Plastic flat top chains prevent product jams and misalignment during transportation, reducing the risk of damage and downtime.

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.
