John

Buyer

We did a head to head comparison on both chains and we averaged about 1 1/2 years with our previous supplier and 1-3/4 up to 2 years on Brooks. We did this head to head for about 2 years.
Brooks service is great compared to our previous supplier and you don't have to argue with Brooks if they're wrong they will tell you up front.

Precision Conveyor Chain Quick Overview

Conveyor chain is used as an efficient method for conveying products, rather than transmitting power (e.g. power transmission roller chain).

Conveyor chain is made up from number of different components, manufactured from materials best suited to their role within the chain. Conveyor chain is made up from a series of inner and outer links, pins, bushes and often rollers.

In its simplest form, an inner link consists of two inner link plates, which are pressed onto cylindrical bushes, relying on an interference fit to keep the link plates in place. A free fitting roller is often assembled onto the bushes allowing the chain to roll, although ‘bush conveyor chains’ (chains without rollers) are quite common in the market place.

An outer link consists of two outer link plates and two bearing pins. The bearing pins are pushed into the link plate on one side, before inner link assemblies are slotted over the bearing pins. The opposing link plate is then pushed onto the bearing pin, before the bearing pins are riveted over the outer link plates, forming a secure assembly.

As a general rule, there are three main types of conveyor chain;

Solid Pin Chain - Generally supplied with an attachment for ancillary fittings.

Hollow Pin Chain - Supplied with a hollow bearing pin. Ancillary items are bolted through the hollow pins.

Deep Link Chain - The top of the link plate is extended to keep the roller in board. Supplied ‘as is’ to be used for carrying items on top of the chains, or supplied with attachments for ancillary fittings.

Since the development of modern conveyor chain in 1880’s, there have been various standards developed, including;

Generally based around a standard BS, DIN or ISO conveyor chain, except with modifications to suit specific application requirements, such as operating under non-standard conditions or simply performing a specialist role. Engineered chains often offer a more financially viable solution to modification of a standard chain, especially when service life is of particular importance.

With our position as a high quality UK manufacturer, we are able to meet the design challenges that bespoke engineered chains raise. We already supply bespoke conveyor chain solutions to some of the world’s largest manufacturers, including car plants, steel manufacturers, water treatment sites and food processing to name a few.
