Roller chain or bush roller chain is the type of chain drive most commonly used for transmission of mechanical power on many kinds of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, including conveyors, wire- and tube-drawing machines, printing presses, cas, motorcycles, and bicycles. It consists of a series of short cylindrical rollers held together by side links. It is driven by a toothed wheel called a sprocket. It is a simple, reliable, and efficient means of power transmission.
These type chain conveyor are ideal for transporting articles along a linear or curved path, the system including a track way having a curved outer rail. Operating along the track way is an endless belt supported between a driven roll and an idler roll, the belt being constituted by a continuous chain of interlinked cross rods. The unique “hollow” pin feature provides unlimited conveyor versatility, allowing easy insertion of cross rods or attachment.
