Brief Introduction Of Conveying Chain
The conveyor chains, like the transmission chains, are also made up of a series of bearings, which are fixed by a constrained chain plate and are very precise in their position. Each bearing comprises a pin shaft and a sleeve, and the roller of the chain rotates on it. The pin shaft and sleeve are hardened by the surface, which permits the articulation of the joint under high pressure and can withstand the load pressure and the impact of the meshing when passing through the roller.
Various strength conveyor chains have a series of different chain pitch: The minimum chain pitch depends on the demand of the sprocket teeth for sufficient strength, the maximum chain pitch is usually determined by the rigidity of the chain plate and the general chain, and if necessary, the sleeve between the reinforcing chain can exceed the rated maximum chain pitch, but the clearance of the sleeve must be retained in the tooth.
