  • Features 1.4x the allowable load of TTP Series, making it ideal for heavier load operations.
  • Can use the same sprocket as plastic top chain for curved conveyance (TTUP, TPU). Parts are also interchangeable.
  • All plastic chain -- lightweight, easy to handle and replace. Users can expect longer life under water lubrication conditions than with stainless steel pins.
  • TSUBAKI switched from knurled pins to D-pins for all connecting pins from January 2009.
  • Knurled pin and D-pin chains cannot be connected. When replacing, please replace the entire chain.

  1. (1) Model
  2. (2) Plate width: mm (Example) 826 = 82.6mm
  3. (3) Plastic pin code: Blank = Stainless steel pin type, P = Plastic pin type
  4. (4) Series code*:
    • [TPS]
      Blank = Standard series, LFW/LFG/LFB = Low friction, Anti-wear, ALF = Ultra-low friction and wear resistant, WR = Low friction, DIA/DIY = Impact resistant, KV = High speed, heat resistant
    • [TPS-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.
