Sugar IndustryTsubaki Examples of Use by Industry and Application

CANE HARVESTER CHAINS

Our cane harvester chains are manufactured to Tsubaki’s exacting specifications at our ISO certified manufacturing facility.

All of our components are shot peened and the chain is also statically pre-loaded to give it enhanced wear life in the harsh conditions of the cane fields.

CANE BAGASSE CARRIER CHAIN with OUTBOARD ROLLER

The unique outboard roller design from Tsubaki makes maintenance a breeze.

The chain is designed to maintain a thin layer of lubrication on the bearing surface, extending the service life of the system.

And the convenient location of the rollers makes it easy to replace a broken one without dismantling the entire system, eliminating excessive and costly downtime.

INTERMEDIATE CARRIER CHAINS

RF Conveyor Type

Our RF Series intermediate carrier chains are built from the finest material and use the same special stainless steel grade for the pin and bush that was designed for the bagasse reclaimer application to protect against corrosion and wear.

The pin and bush areas are also lubricated with MoS2 grease during assembly. Further, since the chain is normally not lubricated during operation this MoS2 grease has been baked on in areas to provide additional lubrication functions.

Additional sizes and series are available on request.

BAGASSE RECLAIMER CHAINS

The bagasse reclaimer powers the mill and so is the most critical chain application.

Tsubaki has spent thoroughly researched the market research and field tested its chains to come up with a grade of stainless steel that has the highest combined levels of corrosion resistance, strength, and wear properties.

In addition to this unique stainless steel grade we also through harden and induction harden our pins to give them the best wear life possible. Due to the lack of lubrication during operation we also lubricate the pin and bushing area with MoS2 grease during assembly and also bake this grease onto certain areas. Our attachments are also robotically welded to the chain to ensure the deepest and strongest weld penetration possible.
