Do you need to elevate, convey, operate or drive something? Then you probably need an engineering chain. These jack-of-all-trades chains provide superior strength, durability and endurance and are built to be continually reliable under some of the toughest conditions on the planet. Drive chains are designed to offer exceptional fatigue strength and even a reserve of strength to handle those heavy loads and rugged conditions. Engineering chains help keep projects of all sizes moving smoothly and rapidly — keeping projects on track and profits flowing smoothly.
In your industrial application, knowing that your chains are sturdy enough to survive the harshest tests in terms of load, shock and strain is critically important. Any time that your production line is down, you are not making money — and to have the problem traced back to a lowly engineering chain is simply unacceptable. That’s why the engineering chains that PEER Chain provides are only the highest quality, pre-tested for optimum strength and crafted with alloy steel parts for accurate pitch control and exceptional press fit. The uniform core strength that you’ll find in these engineering chains allows them to continue to deliver consistent results for your project day after day, night after night of uninterrupted service.
Uses of Engineering Chains
Food service is only one of the many applications for this versatile class of engineering chains. They are used for some of the toughest applications such as drilling for oil, operations that include a lot of sand, dirt and sticky crude oil. They also see usage on forklift trucks where they’ll be subjected to numerous repetitions of stress and jolts. Engineering chains are the go-to option for engineers when the application requires a compact space with the maximum possible amount of power transfer and a high level of durability.
Roller Chains or Engineering Chains?
In general, engineering chains are slightly different from roller chains. Roller chains often are used for power transmission and engineering chains are used for material handling. There are some differences in construction between the two types of chains, so it is important to ensure that you select the correct one for your needs. Rollers are not often needed on material handling chains, but are a required part for power transmission chains. Running at high speeds is safer when you’re using a roller chain, while engineering chains are stronger for more durable and long-term operations as they have a shorter distance between sprockets.
