Silent Chain for Conveying
Extended pitch conveyor was developed in cooperation with glass industry engineers looking for a lightweight, long-lasting chain that would operate on existing 1/2" pitch sprockets. This was achieved by increasing the average thickness of individual links from 0.060" to 0.090" and increasing the pitch from 1/2" to 1". The resulting chain has less mass than a comparable width standard conveyor. With fewer joints per foot, it has a reduced number of contacts for fouling and wear.
