Heavy-duty conveyor chain
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
A range of heavy-duty Finnish-made conveyor chain, specially designed for harsh environments is now available in the UK from Letchworth-based FB Chain.
According to FB Chain, the welded construction method results in a chain with a breaking load some 30% higher than the riveted alternative.
“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.
“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.”
