Conveyor chain, like transmission roller chain, can be manufactured to a variety of international standards. The primary standards available are:
British Standard (BS)
This standard covers chain manufactured to suit the British market and markets where a strong British existence has dominated engineering design and purchasing. The typical is based on the original Ever-power Conveyor Chain design.
ISO Standard Chain
Chain produced to ISO Standard is not interchangeable with BS or DIN Standard Chain. This standard includes a wide acceptance in the European market, except in Germany. Chain produced to this standard is becoming more popular and are used extensively in the Scandinavian area.
Ever-power has comprehensive experience in the produce of conveyor chain. The Ever-power specification of conveyor chain offers taken a long time in design and advancement to achieve the optimum product.
In order to ensure this is translated into product performance, we strictly control:
Heat Treatment
Attachment Assembly
Conveyor Chain Exploded View
Ever-power Ultimate Reliability
The key to Ever-power chain reliability is consistency in design and manufacture.
Maximum chain strength and level of resistance to wear are attained by strict control of the material specification and through the use of state of the art heat treatment processes.
The consistent overall tolerances of Ever-power chain make it well suited for conveying systems requiring precise alignment on multi-strand chain layouts.
Breaking loads exceed the minimum international standards.
Correct chain selection is vital for optimum performance. Ever-power’s experienced style team are always open to freely advise on particular products and applications.
Standard and Deep Hyperlink conveyor chain is available to BS4116 Component 4 as well as ISO 1977, with both Hollow and Solid Bearing Pins.
Extra Strength Standard Conveyor Chain
To check our standard selection of British Standard Conveyor Chain, this extra strength chain is more ideal for conveyor applications selected on ultimate tensile strength (breaking load). Each chain is the same dimensionally as its normal counterpart, for example a supplementary strength 24000 lbs chain has basically the same sizes as a normal 12000 pounds series chain. This chain can be used extensively in the conveying of animal feed and bulk food stuffs such as grain, maize, wheat and raw food mixtures.
Many of these applications use scraper type conveyor systems that as a rule have long center distances between sprockets. This kind of systems are sometimes slow moving with little or no shock loading. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for selection and applicational information.
