Lifeguard Conveying Chain Receives European Patent
European Patent Granted for Ramsey Lifeguard® Conveying Chain
Ramsey was recently granted a European patent for Lifeguard® wear protected conveying chains (EP 2368816 B1). Already covered by three United States patents (US 2013/0087436 A1, US 8,322,522 B2 and US 8,356,709), Lifeguard chains utilize unique interlocking side links that not only guard against pin head wear, but also greatly reduce the size of gaps between adjacent side plates. With much smaller gaps between the side plates, smooth product transfer on and off the conveying surface is assured and the potential for snagging on lateral guides is reduced. These features are especially beneficial when conveying small bottles. Lifeguard is only available from Ramsey, and is currently available in 1/2″ pitch, as well as 1″ pitch extended pitch.
