CONVEYOR CHAIN > STAINLESS STEEL
Pennine Industrial, the leading supplier of inverted tooth silent conveyor chain and sprockets to the glass industry is pleased to announce our new STAINLESS STEEL ½” Pitch Silent Conveyor Chain. The thermal properties of STAINLESS STEEL reduces the risks of thermal checking by retaining more heat energy than regular carbon steel chains:-
• Reducing or eliminating the need for gas burners.
• Reducing operating and maintenance costs.
The corrosion resistance of STAINLESS STEEL Conveyor Chain also prevents any oxidisation marks common with carbon steel Conveyor Chain marking the bottom of the glass container, especially important in the high quality Cosmetic Industry.
Pennine Industrial have selected 420 grade stainless steel for its excellent mechanical properties and because it can be hardened. This means that our STAINLESS STEEL chain has EXACTLY the same wear resistance as our carbon steel chain.
As the pins never come into contact with the glass all Pennine STAINLESS STEEL chains will be supplied with our tried and tested hardened carbon steel pins.
To complement our STAINLESS STEEL chain we have also launched our THPL and PENN-GUARD in STAINLESS STEEL giving you the proven pin head protection that PENNINE developed. STAINLESS STEEL chains are only available with the solid THPL therefore if the customer wants to use the Head Protector System on Centre Guide and Side Guide chains, a small modification to the sprocket design may be required.
