Conveyor chain, like transmitting roller chain, could be manufactured to a number of different international standards. The primary standards available are:
British Conveyor Chain standard (BS)
This standard covers chain produced to suit the British market and markets in which a strong British presence has dominated engineering design and purchasing. The standard is based on the original Ever-power Conveyor Chain design.
ISO Standard Chain
Chain manufactured to ISO Standard is not interchangeable with BS or DIN Standard Chain. This standard has a wide acceptance in the European marketplace, except in Germany. Chain manufactured to this standard is now more popular and are used extensively in the Scandinavian region.
Ever-power has intensive experience in the manufacture of conveyor chain. The Ever-power specification of conveyor chain provides taken a long time in design and development to achieve the optimum product.
To be able 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 power and level of resistance to wear are achieved by strict control of the material specification and by using state of the art heat treatment processes.
The constant 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 minimal international standards.
Correct chain selection is vital for optimum performance. Ever-power’s experienced design team are always open to freely recommend on particular products and applications.
Standard and Deep Link conveyor chain is open 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 may be the same dimensionally as its regular counterpart, for example a supplementary strength 24000 lbs chain has simply the same dimensions as a standard 12000 lbs series chain. This chain can be used extensively in the conveying of pet feed and bulk food stuffs such as grain, maize, wheat and raw food mixtures.
Most of these applications make use of scraper type conveyor systems that as a rule have long center distances between sprockets. This kind of systems are sometimes slower moving with little or no shock loading. Contact our technical sales staff for selection and applicational details.
