  • Plastic Top Chain

TPH Series

Uses a comb-shaped plate to minimize the gap between links.

Perfect for conveying unstable containers such as PET bottles and dessert cups.

  • TPH: Stainless steel pin type
  • TPH-P: Plastic pin type

  • Surface of top plate is flatter and smoother. Effective in preventing container wobbling and toppling during
  • Plates feature multiple holes for draining excess lubricant and water remaining on top of the plates.
  • Has the same basic dimensions as the TPS Series, so it can provide stable container conveyance just by replacing the chain.
  • All plastic chain -- lightweight, easy to handle and replace. Users can expect longer life under water lubrication conditions than with stainless steel pins.

2. Structure

TPH Series Structure
  • Only the plastic connecting pin (for connecting two strands of chain) is orange. The plastic base chain pins are white.

  1. (1) Model
  2. (2) Plate width: 830 = 83mm
  3. (3) Plastic pin code: Blank = Stainless steel pin type, P = Plastic pin type
  4. (4) Series code*:
    • [TPH]
      Blank = Standard series, LFW/LFG/LFB = Low friction, Anti-wear, ALF = Ultra-low friction and wear resistant, WR = Low friction, DIA/DIY = Impact resistant
    • [TPH-P]
      Blank = Standard series, LFW/LFG/LFB = Low friction, Anti-wear, ALF = Ultra-low friction and wear resistant, DIY = Impact resistant

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.
