Conveyor chain, like transmission roller chain, can be manufactured to a variety of international standards. The primary standards available are:
British Standard (BS)
This standard covers chain manufactured to suit the British market and markets in which a strong British presence has dominated engineering design and purchasing. The standard is centered on the original Ever-power Conveyor Chain design.
ISO Standard Chain
Chain manufactured to ISO Standard isn’t interchangeable with BS or DIN Regular Chain. This standard includes a wide acceptance in the European market, except in Germany. Chain produced to this regular is now more popular and are utilized extensively in the Scandinavian area.
Ever-power has extensive experience in the produce of conveyor chain. The Ever-power specification of conveyor chain provides taken a long time in design and development to attain the optimum product.
In order to ensure this is translated into product performance, we strictly control:
Materials
Heat Treatment
Processes
Fits
Attachment Assembly
Lubrication

Ever-power Ultimate Reliability
The key to Ever-power chain reliability is consistency in design and manufacture.
Maximum chain power and resistance to wear are achieved by strict control of the materials specification and by using state of the art heat treatment processes.
The consistent overall tolerances of Ever-power chain make it ideal for conveying systems requiring precise alignment on multi-strand chain layouts.
Breaking loads go beyond the minimal international standards.
Correct chain selection is essential for the best possible performance. Ever-power’s experienced design team are always open to freely advise on particular items and applications.
Standard and Deep Link conveyor chain is available to BS4116 Part 4 in addition to ISO 1977, with both Hollow and Solid Bearing Pins.
Extra Strength Standard Conveyor Chain
To check our standard range of British Standard Conveyor Chain, this extra strength chain is more ideal for conveyor applications selected on ultimate tensile strength (breaking load). Each chain may be the same dimensionally as its regular counterpart, for example a supplementary strength 24000 lbs chain has basically the same sizes as a standard 12000 pounds series chain. This chain is used extensively in the conveying of pet feed and bulk food stuffs such as for example grain, maize, wheat and raw food mixtures.
Most of these applications use scraper type conveyor systems that as a rule have long center distances between sprockets. This kind of systems are sometimes sluggish moving with little or no shock loading. Contact our technical sales staff for selection and applicational details.
