Engineering Class Chains

What Is Engineering Chain?

The engineering class chain is a roller chain made of essential components called link plates, rollers, bushings, and pins. The chain can be either single- or multi-strand and comes in various sizes with different tensile strengths. The tensile strength and chain load rating are chosen depending on the purpose of the chain. Built to withstand the most rugged operating conditions, engineering class chains offer high load capacities and the fatigue strength needed to stay in operation for long periods. Applications exist in many heavy industries including food processing, earthmoving, lumber, mining, petroleum, pulp and paper, shipbuilding, steel, rubber and plastics, and waste treatment.

Types Of Chains In Mechanical Engineering

The basic types of engineering class chains are broadly classified as drive chains and conveyor chains. Most conveyor chains are custom designed for use in material handling operations.

With professional experience in engineering chain design and manufacturing,Select high-quality materials and advanced manufacturing technology according to the working conditions of various industries,The product has the characteristics of high strength, high wear resistance, corrosion resistance, high and low temperature resistance.

Scraper Conveyor Chains

Scraper conveyor chain has various types and is widely used in powder, granule, block and other materials conveying machinery;

Palm Oil Chains

Palm oil chain refers to the chain used in palm oil production equipment from palm fruit to finished palm oil, and the products cover every link of palm oil production.

Trencher Chains

It is a crucial component of the chain trencher. The rotation of the chain drives the cutter installed on the chain plate to realize the trenching operation.

Sewage Treatment Chains

It is mainly used in municipal sewage treatment in large and medium-sized cities and wastewater treatment in various heavy industries and hazardous chemical industries;
“We offer various engineering class chains for heavy-duty power transmission and conveying applications. Engineering chains offered by us are manufactured from high-performance base materials to ensure increased wear life. We use various grades of steel, heat-treated to precise specifications and assembled with accurate press-fits to withstand the requirements of today’s powerful, high-production equipment. “

What Is The Difference Between Engineering Class Chains And Roller Chains?

In general, engineering class chains are slightly different from roller chains. Roller chains often are used for power transmission, and engineering class chains are used for material handling. There are some differences in construction between the two types of chains, so it is essential to ensure that you select the correct one for your needs. Rollers are not often needed on material handling chains but are a part of power transmission chains. Running at high speeds is safer when using a roller chain while engineering class chains are more substantial for more stable and long-term operations as they have a shorter distance between sprockets.

Applications of Engineering Class Chain

The application condition of the engineering class chain is generally harsh, such as low speed and heavy load, dust, corrosion, impact, high and low temperature (outdoor), etc. Through the scientific selection of materials and optimization of the heat treatment process, make chains have high strength, high fatigue, high wear resistance, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, and long-life performance characteristics. Ensure chains fully meet the requirements of various construction machinery equipment. The engineering class chain is widely used in the mining machinery industry, particular vehicle industry, road construction machinery industry, cement, and building materials industry, metallurgical foundry industry, oil field machinery industry, environmental protection machinery industry, etc.
“Welded chain is a standard chain used in industrial and agricultural settings. Its design allows it to be lightweight and robust. It is ideal for heavy-duty applications. There are two types of welded chains: carbon steel and stainless steel. Other welded chains include single-loop chains, double-loop chains, and agricultural safety chains. They are all made to withstand high loads and are used for many different purposes.”

—— What Is Welded Chain?

“Before installation, the chain must pass the chain and sprocket disc engagement confirmation. Impurities or complex objects are not allowed to adhere to the chain and sprocket to prevent damage to the chain drive system. The chain should run smoothly within the rated power requirements, without overload, impact, or frequent start. The chain will fail after being used for a long time; therefore, it should be adequately adjusted or replaced regularly. The sprocket should be installed coplanar to prevent the chain from being forcibly twisted by external forces or prevent it be too large.”

—— What Precautions Should be Taken When Installing The Chain?

“A conveyor chain comprises a series of journal bearings that link together. The chains are bearings that are connected by constraining link plates. The bearings contain a brush and pin, which helps the chain roller to move. It includes a brush and pin on which the chain roller revolves. When the power is on, the motor will rotate, and the chain will move. As the chain moves, it will also impact the material on the top. This is how a conveyor chain moves material from one place to another. ”

—— How Does a Conveyor Chain Work?

“A corrosion-resistant roller chain is one of the best rust-poof chains. This type of chain is made corrosion-resistant, so they are rust-proof. The term corrosion-resistant is used for roller chains made of metal that can resist rust and other environmental factors. This chain type is available in many wide-range, including steel, nickel, and aluminum. Stainless steel roller chains are the best choice for corrosive environments. These chains are crafted from 304 stainless steel and are suitable for high temperatures.”
