Heavy duty welded conveyor chain
07 November 2011
A range of heavy duty conveyor chain specially designed for harsh environments is now available in the UK from FB Chain. Made in Finland, where it has been used to power conveyors working in the demanding timber and wood industries, the chain’s pins and bushes are welded to the side plate - unlike a standard chain where the pins and bushes are usually simply riveted in place.
The welded construction method results in a chain with a breaking load some 30 per cent higher than the riveted alternative. FB Chain says this construction offers greater resistance to shock loading and improved fatigue strength. The chain has been used widely in Scandinavia for over 50 years and is recommended for the quarrying, construction and recycling industries.
Although perhaps best known for the leaf chain that it supplies to the materials handling sector, FB Chain offers an extensive range of heavy duty chain and transmission products that are used across a wide variety of industries.
