  • Low Maintenance
  • Reduced Product Jams

Versatility

Plastic flat top chains are used in a variety of industries, including 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, and e-commerce and fulfillment centers. Versatility makes these chains an ideal choice for various applications.

Durability

Plastic flat top chains are highly durable and can withstand harsh environments. The material used to make these chains is corrosion-resistant, making them suitable for use in industries such as food and beverage, where harsh chemicals are used in the production process. Durability also ensures a longer lifespan of the chain, leading to less frequent replacement and reduced maintenance costs.

Cleanliness

Plastic flat top chains are easy to clean and maintain. The material used in making these chains is non-porous, making it resistant to dirt and bacteria. This is especially important in industries such as food and beverage and pharmaceuticals, where hygiene is of utmost importance.

Flexibility

Plastic flat top chains are highly flexible, making them suitable for use in applications that require tight turns and bends. The interlocking modules on the chain provide a stable and secure conveying surface, ensuring that products are transported smoothly and efficiently without damage or disruption.

Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains operate quietly, making them ideal for use in environments that require low noise levels. The interlocking modules on the chain provide a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of noise generated from product impact during transportation.

Smooth Product Transfer

The flat top surface of plastic flat top chains provides a smooth and even platform for product transfer. This feature reduces the risk of damage or disruption during transportation, ensuring that products are transported safely and efficiently.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains offer high traction, making them suitable for use in applications that require heavy loads to be transported. This feature ensures that products are transported smoothly and efficiently, without slipping or misalignment.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are cost-effective, providing a reliable and efficient conveying solution while reducing maintenance costs.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance, reducing maintenance costs and ensuring a longer lifespan for the chain.

Reduced Product Jams

Plastic flat top chains are designed to reduce product jams during transportation, ensuring that products are transported smoothly and efficiently without damage or disruption.

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.

Consider the Application

The first step in selecting the right plastic flat top chains is to consider the specific application in which they will be used. This involves identifying the load capacity and conveyor system compatibility required for the application, as well as any other application-specific features that may be necessary.

Material Selection

Material selection is an important consideration when selecting plastic flat top chains. The material used to make the chains should be corrosion-resistant, durable, and suitable for use in the specific application for which they are intended.

Chain Design and Configuration

Chain design and configuration should be chosen based on the specific application requirements. Factors to consider include the number of interlocking modules, the size and shape of the modules, and the pitch of the chain links.

Load Capacity

The load capacity of plastic flat top chains should be carefully considered when selecting chains for a specific application. The load capacity should be sufficient to handle the weight of the products or materials being transported.

Conveyor System Compatibility

The plastic flat top chains selected should be compatible with the conveyor system in which they will be used. This includes consideration of the sprockets used to drive the chains, as well as other components of the conveyor system.

Quality and Durability

Quality and durability are important factors to consider when selecting plastic flat top chains. The chains should be of high quality and should be designed to withstand the specific application requirements.

Application-Specific Features

Application-specific features should be considered when selecting plastic flat top chains. This may include features such as high traction, low noise, or product jam reduction.

Maintenance and Serviceability

Maintenance and serviceability should be considered when selecting plastic flat top chains. The chains should be easy to clean and maintain, and should be designed to require minimal maintenance.

Cost-Effectiveness

Cost-effectiveness is an important consideration when selecting plastic flat top chains. The chains should provide a reliable and efficient conveying solution, while also being cost-effective in terms of maintenance and replacement costs.

Consult with Experts

Consulting with experts in the field can be helpful in selecting the right plastic flat top chains for a specific application. Experts can provide guidance on material selection, chain design, and other factors that may affect the performance of the chains.
