Applications and Benefits of Bearing Roller Conveyor Chain

Bearing Roller Conveyor Chain can help solve problems facing various applications.

Suppresses stick-slip phenomenon and increases work efficiency

Assembly line image

■ Problem

Normally, a chain with a thin metal insert press-fitted near the rollers is used. At speeds of 5m/min or less, the chain experiences stick-slip, causing motion sickness in workers and decreased work efficiency.

↓↓↓

■ Problem solved

Normal operation with no stick-slip seen, even at 2m/min. Motion sickness in workers is also eliminated, leading to a better work environment.

  • Industry: Automotive
  • Application: Assembly line
  • Chain size: RF17200BF-1LA2

Increases conveyor life while reducing maintenance time

■ Problem

Additional lubrication is impossible when conveying paper rolls. This causes poor roller rotation, leading to increased chain load, which in turn leads to plate hole elongation and wear on the S roller outer diameter.

↓↓↓

■ Problem solved

Bearing rollers provide for smooth roller rotation, resulting in lower chain load, reduced wear on the roller outer diameters, and much longer conveyor life.

  • Industry: Paper
  • Application: Paper roll slat conveyor
  • Chain size: RF10-BS

Effective against rail wear and suppresses chain - rail sliding noise

■ Problem

Normally, a standard chain with lubrication is used. Strong downwards pressure from the pipes being conveyed causes poor roller rotation, greater rail wear, and shorter chain and rail life.

↓↓↓

■ Problem solved

Smooth roller rotation and less rail wear means quieter running between chain and rail.

  • Industry: Steel
  • Application: Seamless pipe conveyor
  • Chain size: RF05075BR

Lowers chain load in dusty environments and avoids chain failure

Plastic, sand, stone image

■ Problem

Need a chain that will lower chain tension in dusty environments and avoid chain failure.

■ Problem solved

Lube every 2-3 months, no part problems after five years of operation.

  • Industry: Recycling
  • Application: Plastic, sand, stone, etc.
  • Chain size: RF17

Lowers energy consumption in dusty environments

■ Problem

Need a chain that can lower energy consumption in dusty environments.

↓↓↓

■ Problem solved

Lube once a year, no part problems after one year operation.

  • Industry: Cement
  • Application: Fly ash
  • Chain size: RF26

Reduces corner rail wear on outdoor inclined conveyors

■ Problem

Lube in standard conveyor chains sticks to the roller rotating surface while on the rail, leading to poor roller rotation. This increases chain load and roller reaction force on the corners, resulting in corner rail wear in 1-2 months. Equipment is located on the coast, so lube-free operation would be best.

↓↓↓

■ Problem solved

Smooth roller rotation reduces chain load as well as the roller reaction force on the corners. This in turn helps control corner rail wear.

  • Industry: Cement
  • Application: Used tire conveyor
  • Chain size: RF17200WEBF

Suppresses stick-slip phenomenon and increases operation rate of production lines

■ Problem

Stick-slip causes mis-operation of the sensors during product inspection, which necessitates frequent line stops. Workers also get motion-sick, leading to a bad working environment. Further, water from washing machine leak checks regularly get onto one side of the chain, leading to worse corrosion and shorter life than the opposite side chain.

↓↓↓

■ Problem solved

No more line stops from stick-slip phenomenon interfering with sensor operation, leading to a better work environment. Switching to WEBF (Water Resistant Specifications) on one side of the line extends chain life, even with water contacting the chain.

  • Industry: Home appliance
  • Application: Home appliance conveyor
  • Chain size: RF17200WEBF

Lube-free, long life operation in shower testers for the automotive industry

Shower tester conveyor image

■ Problem

The shower tester lines are a particularly harsh process in the automotive industry. In the past, the issues of lube-free, long life operation were addressed with seals and grease nipples, or plastic inserts in the roller inner radius. However, none of these methods were satisfactory in terms of maintenance time and chain life.

↓↓↓

■ Problem solved

We introduced our WEBF Series chain, which combines the reduced wear of seal and grease nipple types, and the lube-free features of plastic inserts. It provides lube-free, long life operation even in contact with water.

  • Industry: Automotive
  • Application: Shower tester conveyor
  • Chain size: RF12200WEBF-1LA2
