4.2.6 TS Top Chain
Steel Top Chain: For linear conveyance. General uses
TS Top Chain is used for linear conveyance. TS-P type allows on-loading and unloading objects along direction of chain movement, when a single strand of chain is used. When objects are conveyed or moved across several strands of chains, TS-PA type works effectively. (Figure 4.10 shows TS-P type.)
Construction and Features
- In TS Top Chain, top plates are projection-welded onto RS Double Pitch Roller Chain (RS2060-S).
- Table 4.11 shows the main functions of the chain.
Chains for Special Applications
- Nickel-plated and 304 stainless steel are available.
- The lubrication-free LAMBDA® series (NP-P-LAMBDA, NP-PA-LAMBDA) offers extended chain wear life without additional lubrication (not suit-able for wet or dusty conditions).
