Product Announcement from Ramsey Products Corporation
Standard Conveyor Chain First introduced more than 30 years ago, Ramsey standard conveyor has become the chain most often used in glass plants around the world. By using an oval pin joint designed specifically for the glass industry, standard conveyor provides trouble-free operation in most production settings. Produced exclusively by Ramsey, it includes many of the features of UltraLife, but at a reduced price.
Lo-Profile Produced to the same quality standards as standard conveyor, Ramsey Lo-Profile conveyor has a reduced overall link height and larger flats on the link points. The increased surface area on the bottom of the chain serves to reduce bearing stress on wear plates, effectively reducing link wear and resistance to sliding. It works well where a more compact chain is needed.
Extended Pitch Extended pitch conveyor was developed in cooperation with glass industry engineers looking for a lightweight, long-lasting chain that would operate on existing 1/2" pitch sprockets. This was achieved by increasing the average thickness of individual links from 0.060" to 0.090" and increasing the pitch from 1/2" to 1". The resulting chain has less mass than a comparable width standard conveyor. With fewer joints per foot, it has a reduced number of contacts for fouling and wear. All Ramsey Conveyor chains can be ground to produce an ultrasmooth surface. This can help to minimize the possibility of tipping or marking of glassware during transport.
Upon request, chains are also available in 3/16" stainless steel
