Worn or elongated chain in a lumber mill can be a big problem — with the weights that are being moved around, even the tiniest of slips or accidents can have disastrous results. PEER Chain understands, and that’s why our sharp top chain is one of the most durable that we offer. Not all sharp top chains are created equal. Downtime to replace a chain will drop productivity and slow down overall production, not a good situation when you’re running a sawmill. Conventional split bushing roller chains don’t have the same durability that you’ll find in PEER Chain’s sharp top chain.
Durability is Critical
Your lumber mill needs to run with the smallest possible margin of error and at the highest possible speed, and that’s not possible unless you’re using sharp top chains and other mechanisms that combine strength, durability and exceptional design. At PEER Chain, we are proud that not only are we able to fulfill those requirements, but our sharp top chain is cost-effective, too. We utilize one piece cold-forged bushings to create a superior quality chain that improves chain wear characteristics. Lumber mills are a high-stress, high-pressure environment, and not just for the operators of the mills! Chains and other parts really take a beating as heavy lumber moves within the mill. Having a chain break during operation is one of the critical dangers that mill operators and managers must face, as these chains can be under tremendous pressure. Whether you need a replacement sharp top chain or are adding a new component to your mill, the safety of your chains and other components is of integral importance.

Types of Sharp Top Chain
There are a variety of types of sharp top chain, including single, double, triple and quadruple variations. Each of these chains is designed to have a precise tooth sharpness that has the least possible penetration while maintaining a strong grip on materials. The solid center plate design sharply curtails breakage from sawdust and chip compaction, while our Quest(TM) technology provides added durability that will provide you with years of problem-free usage. PEER Chain offers a wide range of sharp top chains for your specific needs. We also can include an optional machined smooth bottom that will reduce the overall damage to the chain beds. One other optional process that we offer is called ProCoat(TM), which provides unrivaled resistance to corrosion for use in challenging environments of all kinds.
There are many different standards when it comes to chains, but PEER Chain will never let you down. From the revolutionary Quest(TM) technology that adds durability, our sharp top chains are backed by decades of experience in the field.
