The precision conveyor chain, like transmission chain, consists of a series of journal bearings held in precise relationship to each other by constraining link plates.

International Standards

Conveyor chain, like transmission roller chain, can be manufactured to a number of different international standards. The main standards available are

British Standard (BS)

This standard covers chain manufactured to suit the British market and markets where a strong British presence has dominated engineering design and purchasing. The standard is based on the original Renold Conveyor Chain design.

ISO Standard Chain

Chain manufactured to ISO Standard is not interchangeable with BS or DIN Standard Chain. This standard has a wide acceptance in the European market, except in Germany. Chain manufactured to this standard is becoming more popular and are used extensively in the Scandinavian region.

Hollow Bearing Pin Chain

Hollow bearing pin chain facilitates fixing attachments to outer links by bolting through the hollow pin and is suitable for use in all normal conditions. The attachments may be bolted up tight or held in the hollow bearing pin in a "free" manner. Bolted attachments should only span the outer link, as a bolted attachment spanning the inner link would impair the free articulation of the chain.

Deep Link Chain

Deep link chains have sideplates with a greater depth than the normal chain plates; thus providing a continuous carrying edge above the roller periphery. When lateral flexing of the chain is required to negotiate horizontal bend radii, coned bearing pins are employed. Available in Hollow or Solid Pin versions

Solid Bearing Pin Conveyor Chain

Solid bearing pin chain, while having exactly the same gearing dimensions, i.e. pitch, inside width and roller diameter as the equivalent hollow bearing pin chain, is more robust and is recommended for use where arduous conditions may be encountered.
