When Would You Need to Change A New Chain for Your Spiral Conveyor?

When do you need to change a new transmission chain in your spiral conveyor? The transmission chain of the spiral conveyor will be stretched in the process of operation, and you will have to change a new chain to ensure the smooth running of the spiral conveyor once the extension is up to its limits. Usually, there are two kinds of situations for the chain' elongation: Original elongation and abrasion elongation. Original elongation refers to the pre-stretching of new chains before delivery and it is the standard operating procedure. The new chains are stretched to maximum length to eliminate the [...]

How to Judge If the Sag of Transmission Chain Normal or Not?

Tension regulation is indeed related to the length of the transmission chain, but they are two different concepts.A longish transmission chain doesn’t mean they lack of tension, but people are usually don’t want to see the sag of the chain. Actually, the tension will be reasonable if the chain can engage with the sprocket’s teeth well and can afford the load successfully.According to the above drawing, even 80 mm difference in sag will only reduce 1.5 teeth’engagement, so the length of chain is not key factor of tension.However, overlong chain will impact on the the engagement and brings insufficient wrapping [...]
