Fully bi-planer with true pitch of 406mm. Pairs of vertical and horizontal bearings are fitted to cruciform blocks at 203mm pitch.
Pairs of vertical and horizontal links at 3mm with a minimum breaking strain of 10,000lbs (also known as E8 chain) or 5mm links with a minimum breaking strain of 20,000lbs (also known as F8 chain). Fixed pendants are fitted at 406mm pitch and have safe load capacity of 68kg or with a double pendant flightbar arrangement 138kg.
High-quality steel track sections assembled in 3m maximum lengths with bridge plates at 750mm pitch to form a complete welded assembly. Section formed in a ‘double top hat’ profile.
Caterpillar type to ensure free and smooth transmission of power. Drive through a geared motor unit and chain drive to the twin caterpillar chains incorporating drive dogs. The drive includes a torque limiting device for protection in the event of overload. An AC inverter or DC thyristor can be used to control and vary drive speeds. Sprocket turn drives are also available.
A spring loaded tension device would be fitted to ensure correct chain tension and to compensate for variances within the automated system.
This would be incorporated in a readily accessible position in the circuit for inspection and preventative maintenance.
The conveyor would be either floor supported using square hollow section forming a rigid structure and incorporating base plates, or roof supported utilising track hanger clamps connected to tubular suspensions.
Track finished in poppy red powder coat, steelwork finished mid blue paint, machined parts self colour.
