Designed to optimize tight transfers in the beverage, food, metal container manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries, Rexnord launches the Rexnord 390 Series MatTop Chain.
The 395 MatTop plastic modular chain features a flat top execution while:
–Reducing product damage & loss — with an 8 mm pitch, the chain can go around a nose bar diameter of 6 mm for tight transfers of small footprint & unstable products
–Minimizing risk of chain failure — can carry more load and withstand high peak loads with high strength feature
–Decreasing downtime — high stiffness allows less risk of material fatigue and pin wear, providing optimal chain tracking; chain does not jump on the sprocket with optimized sprocket engagement
–Mitigating product contamination — headless rod with self-locking pin retention; fewer and less complicated tools, assembly and maintenance
Key applications include tight transfer (“knife edge”) conveyors; small product handling where stability of container or delicate nature of product is critical to operation; transitions or transfers between two mass flow conveyor sections; and package and case transfers into and out of packers, turns and spiral conveyors.
