Conveyor Chains in Use

Introduction

Conveyor chains play a vital role in various industries such as automotive, food and beverage, and manufacturing. Conveyor chains are used to transport heavy loads from one location to another, and they operate under extreme conditions. To ensure the durability and longevity of conveyor chains, heat treatment is a must. Heat-treated conveyor chains are stronger and more resistant to wear and tear than non-heat-treated chains.

What is Heat Treatment for Conveyor Chains?

Heat treatment is a process of heating and cooling metals to alter their properties without changing the shape of the material. Heat treatment of conveyor chains involves heating the metal to a specific temperature and then cooling it rapidly. The rapid cooling process, also known as quenching, hardens the metal and improves its strength. The hardening achieved by heat treatment provides conveyor chains with increased resistance to wear and tear, making them last longer.

Advantages of Heat-treated Conveyor Chains

  • Increased strength: Heat treatment increases the strength of conveyor chains, making them capable of withstanding heavy loads and high temperatures.
  • Improved wear resistance: Heat-treated conveyor chains are more resistant to wear and tear, meaning they need to be replaced less frequently.
  • Longer lifespan: The increased strength and improved wear resistance of heat-treated conveyor chains result in a longer lifespan, reducing maintenance costs.
  • Better performance: Heat-treated conveyor chains operate more smoothly and with less noise than non-heat-treated chains.

How are Conveyor Chains Heat-treated?

The heat treatment of conveyor chains involves three steps:

  1. Heating: The metal is heated to a specific temperature in a furnace.
  2. Quenching: The heated metal is cooled rapidly by quenching it in water or oil.
  3. Tempering: The quenched metal is heated again to a lower temperature to relieve any stress in the metal caused by the rapid cooling process.

The temperature at which the metal is heated, the cooling rate, and the temperature at which the metal is tempered depend on the type of metal used and the desired properties of the .

Applications of Heat-treated Conveyor Chains

Heat-treated conveyor chains are widely used in various industries such as:

  • Automotive
  • Food and Beverage
  • Manufacturing
  • Material Handling
  • Agriculture

Heat-treated conveyor chains are an essential component in industrial automation and can be used in conveyors, packaging machines, assembly lines, and more.
