Keep your food and beverage processing perfectly within motion by improving your roller chain performance. The latest innovative conveyor solutions can help you meet the industry’s ever-changing demands when it comes to uncompromising standards for performance and sanitation. From washdown-ready and corrosion-resistant materials to decreasing contamination risk to increasing your processing efficiency, the next generation of roller chains can solve your unique needs in an industry with the most stringent environment.
Preserve Tensile Strength with Corrosion- and Chemical-Resistant Coatings
During food processing and packaging, it’s no secret that tensile strength and maximum allowable load are routinely put to the test, especially when exposed to water, chemicals, and high-humidity conditions. That’s why certain roller chains, like the Neptune® Chain from US Tsubaki®, offer special low-temperature application and curing in the corrosion- and chemical-resistant coating process to preserve hardness and strength. With uniform coverage on every part, this provides maximum reliability in wet environments, which is crucial for applications that require washdown and cleaning detergents, such as alkaline chemicals.
In the food and beverage industry, chains that can resist corrosive environments for longer periods, offer environmentally friendly solutions, comply with RoHS requirements, and are not manufactured with hazardous elements are absolutely essential.
Extend Wear Resistance with Lube-Free Chains
Maximize conveying performance for your food and beverage or food packaging needs with lube-free operations that provide clean applications and ultimate peace of mind. For machines and conveyed materials that need to be free from contact with oil, lube-free chains provide the perfect solution, as they stay cleaner longer, reduce product contamination, and minimize overall maintenance and replacement costs.
Products like the Lambda® Chain from Tsubaki use improved oil-impregnated sintered bushings and NSF-H1 food-grade lubricant to help stabilize quality, improve roller chain performance, and increase wear resistance for long-lasting life. This allows your system to increase energy and labor savings while decreasing downtime.
Enhance Dynamic Performance with Sealed Joint Technology
Protect your system against the harshest environments with sealed joint technology that will protect your bearing areas from the impeding infiltration of foreign matter. The proper seal materials reduce the risk of premature elongation, joint lockage, and dry cavitation, which will significantly increase the effectiveness of a roller chain’s performance and extend its life.
The SJ3™ Series Engineering Class Chains from Tsubaki offers an innovative labyrinth structure made up of three distinct seals, including a barrier, polymer face, and a stainless steel inner ring. With a combination similar to this product, your system will be able to hinder the progression of aggressive fine particulate and enhance its overall dynamic performance.
Material types that would benefit the most from sealed joint technology include:
- Grain & Seeds
- Potash & Fertilizers
- Pet Coke
- Fly Ash
