Ramsey silent chain is the preferred conveyor chain solution for the world’s largest glassware producers.
Silent conveying chains provide a heat resistant, flat, durable, non-slip, conveying surface that can be customized to fit a wide range of industrial applications. All Ramsey conveying chains are designed to smoothly and efficiently engage sprockets, providing minimal speed variation in the conveying surface. Conveyor chain options include single pin or two pin joint construction, link-spacer or all link constructions, pin head protection, and widths up to 20 inches (508mm). Ramsey also offers stainless steel conveyor chain in 410 and 316 series.
Ramsey steel and stainless steel conveying chains are ideal for many applications, including glass and bottle conveyors, food conveyors, and automotive conveyors. More detailed information on each chain style is available by clicking on the product links below.

In addition to the standard product lines listed below, Ramsey also offers custom, made to order, conveying chains and sprockets, as well as replacements for silent chain from other manufacturers. Contact Ramsey for more information.
UltraLife is Ramsey’s best quality conveyor chain, designed for high-speed production lines and field tested in plants around the world. The improved performance of UltraLife is the result of Ramsey’s proprietary link and chain production techniques.
Ramsey’s wear protected chains are designed to extend chain life and improve product handling, especially in applications such as glass, bottle, food and automotive conveying, where conveyors run in contact with lateral guides or transfer plates. Using patented links and technology, Ramsey offers a number of wear protected chain designs including, Lifeguard, Allguard FX, Sentry, and R-Select.
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.
Produced to the same quality standards as standard conveyor, Ramsey Lo-Profile conveyor has a reduced overall link height and larger flats on the tips of each link. The increased surface area on the bottom of the chain serves to reduce bearing stress on wear plates, effectively reducing link wear and resistance to sliding. It works well where a more compact chain is needed.
All Ramsey Standard chains have been upgraded and replaced by UltraLife™ chains. UltraLife chains are 100% interchangeable with traditional standard chains and offer improved chain life and performances. See UltraLife™ for more details.
Ramsey stainless steel conveying chains offer numerous advantages for glass, food, automotive conveying, and general industrial conveying. With higher temperature capability, improved thermal properties, and superior corrosion resistance, Ramsey stainless chains are available in a wide range of widths and assembly styles.
