Standard FV Series Metric Chain

(DIN 8165)

Standard FV Series Metric Conveyor Chain

Data Sheet - Download it here

Metric FV series conveyor chains are Germany’s ‘standard’ conveyor chain. Dimensionally, the FV series conveyor chains sit between the British standard and M series metric conveyor chains. The FV chains are wider than the British standard chains, but narrower than M series metric chains.

The pins and bushes for FV series chains are a little larger than those of M series chains, but still smaller than the round parts in British standard conveyor chains. However, due to the increase in diameter of the pin and bush, the roller diameter has been reduced when compared to M series chain while still offering similar wear and bearing load properties.

FV series chains are manufactured to Metric dimensions, with the pitch always being measured in mm. They are distinguishable from British standard conveyor chains by the flats on the top and bottom of the round parts. These flatted round parts prevent them spinning within the link plates, an issue that can occur on British chains, especially after an extended period of operation.

Although FV series chains are a German standard in competition with the M series metric standard, this range of chain is still popular in numerous countries for a wide array of applications.
