Videocast: Evaluating Conveyor Chain for Packaging Lines

August 21, 2012

Depending on the application, there are different types of conveyor chain or belting that fit specific application requirements.  In many cases, there are several solutions. In other applications,  chain selection may be limited. Belting material and construction will define its performance advantages.

Our video is a visual overview of the criteria and environment that affects conveyor chain selection. Environments or situations highlighted in the video include:

  • Wash-down and Sanitation Conditions

  • Cold Temperatures

  • Freezer Room Applications

  • Chemical Products

  • Elevated Temperatures

  • Electrostatic Applications

  • Explosive Environments

  • Abrasive Products or Environments

While there are more than 50,000 types of packaging conveyor chain in the market place today, Nercon has its’ favorites for general applications based on performance, customer satisfaction and economics. However, in some cases there is much more discovery necessary in choosing the best chain for the application.

The white paper, “Key Principles in Evaluating Chain for Packaging Applications” is an informative review of manufacturing environments, with information on chain definitions, chain strength comparisons and case examples.
