A range of heavy duty conveyor chain specially designed for harsh environments is now available in the UK from Letchworth-based FB Chain Ltd.
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.
According to FB Chain, the welded construction method results in a chain with a breaking load some 30 per cent higher than the riveted alternative. FB Chain say, this construction offers greater resistance to shock loading and improved fatigue strength..
The chain has been used widely in Scandinavia for over 50 years. The chain is especially recommended for the quarrying, construction and recycling industries.
“The harsh environment of any quarry, recycling or construction site puts extraordinary pressure on the conveying equipment,” says Peter Church, managing director of FB Chain Ltd.
He continues: “Chain conveyor applications are rarely the same with the volume and type of product being conveyed varying considerably. This places many different demands on the choice of conveyor chain and the selection process should be carefully considered.
“Conveyors are often at the heart of these operations and any chain malfunction can result in costly downtime. Our heavy duty welded chain has proved itself throughout the Scandinavian timber industry over many years and I am sure it will be welcomed by anyone for whom reliable conveyors are essential.”
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.
