Construction and Features
- Due to the small chain pitch, the transition area between conveyors is minimal. This ensures smooth loading.
- Double strand chain can be used in long conveyors due to increased allowable load.
- Table 4.14 shows chain sizes, availability, functions, and specifications.
Standard sprockets will not work with double strand chains, RS60P-2 and RS60PU-2 chain. Special sprockets must be used.
