Fully bi-planer and assembled in our works from hardened steel side links, sintered metal pivot blocks, and hardened twin ball bearing wheels fitted to both the vertical and horizontal side links. Pendants are fitted at 152mm pitch. Safe load per pendant 23kg.
Track From high quality tight coat galvanised steel, rolled to form a 41mm square section with 3mm wall thickness complete with a 9mm slot. Horizontal and vertical curves rolled from a similar track section and hardened after manufacture.
Drive Unit Caterpillar drive unit with engaging dogs to provide a smooth transition to the main chain. The unit would be driven by an in-line geared motor incorporating a chain drive and torque limiting device for overload protection. An AC inverter or DC thyristor can be used to control and vary drive speeds.
Tension Unit A spring loaded tension device would be fitted to ensure correct chain tension and to compensate for variances within the system.
Support Structure The conveyor would be either floor supported using square hollow section forming a rigid structure and incorporating baseplates, or roof supported utilising track hanger clamps connected to tubular suspensions.
Inspection This would be incorporated in a readily accessible position in the circuit for inspection and preventative maintenance.
