Get to know the industrial chains II
Hello again! Welcome to the second episode of the “Get to know industrial chains” section. In this second episode of the post we are going to talk about accumulation chains. In this post we will try to give you a better understanding of accumulation chains, a chain that is mainly used for the transport of goods.
Iris Chains offers different types of accumulation chains that can be adapted to different product transmission applications. Iris Chains currently offers its customers the following types of accumulation chains: Centre Roller Chains, Side Roller Chains, Top Roller Chains and Double Speed Chains.
Regarding the chains with central roller, these chains are available in two materials: carbon steel and stainless steel. In addition, you have the option of delta-tone and nickel plating. Chains with central roller are used for the stable transmission of product conveying. Through the central roller and with the help of the side rollers, the chain will mark the centre line for conveying the products.
As far as side roller chains are concerned, they are ideal for conveying small products directly on the chain. The side roller chain allows the addition of extra rollers and therefore helps to reduce the load. Like the centre roller chains, it is also available in two materials: carbon steel and stainless steel. As with the centre roller chains, it also has the option of delta-tone and nickel plating.
The top roller chain, on the other hand, is an ideal chain for slow conveying of heavy goods or products. By means of the support on the side wings, top roller chains enable the transport of heavy goods at a slow speed. Just like the centre roller chains and side roller chains, the top roller chains are also available in two different materials and two different types of coatings: On the one hand, carbon steel and stainless steel and on the other hand, delta-tone and nickel plated.
Finally, double speed chains allow products or items to be conveyed 2.5 times faster. By combining rollers of different sizes, the goal of reaching the same level of productivity while saving a significant amount of energy is achieved, as the chain runs 60% slower. Like the other three chains, the double speed chains also feature carbon steel and stainless steel materials and delta-tone and nickel plating.
