  • Plastic Modular Chain

BT8 Series

Chain pitch: 25.4mm

Line-up of top chains for heavy duty, high speed conveyance.

*Only available in closed type.

  • BTC8: Closed type
  • BTC8-A: Closed type
    (with tab guide attachment)
BT8 Series

Notice: Integration of ULF Series with ALF Series

  • We will be integrating ULF Series Plastic Top Chain with ALF Series on orders from April 2017.
  • We will be integrating ALF Series with ULF Series Plastic Modular Chain and Plastic Block Chain on orders from June 2017.
  • Contact a Tsubaki representative for more information regarding ULF Series after integration.
  • ALF Series (ultra-low friction and wear resistant series) dramatically reduces the amount of wear debris generated from sliding with running rails (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) under non-lubricated conditions while maintaining the same ultra low coefficient of friction coefficient as the conventional ULF Series.

1. Features

Wide conveying surface
Provides a wide conveyance surface with its combination of interlocking engineering plastic modular links.
Easy maintenance
Composed of three parts -- modular links, pins, and snap attachments, for easy assembly and disassembly. Modular links that break can be replaced in sections, reducing maintenance time.
Accurate conveyance
The chain and sprocket engagement creates none of the slippage or damage to chain ends that is found on flat belts for accurate conveyance.
Prevents meandering
Types with tab guide attachment will not meander even at high speeds, providing safe conveyance even during lateral transfer between conveyors.
Energy savings
Lightweight thanks to its engineering plastic, which makes handling easy and enables conveyors that require less power.
Uses engineering plastic approved by the Food Sanitation Act, enabling conveyors that match food standards.
