Conveyor Chain

81X chain features a 2.609" pitch and is categorized as a steel bushed roller chain within the engineer class of chains. Its commonly referred to as an 81X conveyor chain due to the straight side-bar design and common usage within conveying applications. Most commonly, this 81X lumber conveyor chain is found in the lumber and forestry industry and is available with upgrades such as "chrome pins" or heavier-duty sidebars. Our high-strength chain is manufactured to ANSI specifications and dimensionally interchanges with other brands, meaning sprocket replacement is not necessary. We also supply 81X chain sprockets and 81X chain attachments, and we have an 81X chain breaker. Because of its high-strength and effective design, this 81X chain can be found in applications all around the world, such as lumber, agriculture, mills, grain handling, and many more drive and conveying applications.

Applications of 81X Lumber Conveyor Chain:

81X lumber conveyor chain is a type of chain commonly used in the lumber industry for conveying large and heavy loads of lumber. The chain is designed with large, sturdy links that can withstand high loads and resist wear and tear. Some of the common applications of 81X lumber conveyor chain include:

  • Lumber conveyors: This is the most common application for the 81X chain. Lumber conveyors are used to move logs and lumber around sawmills and lumberyards.
  • Trimmer saws: 81X chain is often used on trimmer saws, which are used to cut logs into smaller pieces.
  • Stackers: 81X chain is also used on stackers, which are used to stack lumber.
  • Transfer conveyors: Transfer conveyors are used to move lumber from one location to another.
  • Unscramblers: Unscramblers are used to unscramble lumber that has been jumbled together.
  • Sorters: Sorters are used to sort lumber by size or grade.

In addition to these applications, the 81X lumber conveyor chain can also be used in other industries, such as agriculture, mining, and manufacturing.
