Rexnord Launches 390 Series Chain for Beverage Industry
March 2, 2018—The Rexnord 390 Series MatTop Chain is designed to optimize tight transfers in the beverage, food, metal container manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries. The 395 MatTop reduces product damage & loss. With an 8 mm pitch, the chain can go around a nose bar diameter of 6 mm for tight transfers of small footprint & unstable products. It can minimize risk of chain failure by carrying more load and withstanding high peak load. A headless rod with self-locking pin retention allows for less complicated tools, assembly and maintenance. Key applications include tight transfer (“knife edge”) conveyors; small product handling where stability of container or delicate nature of product is critical to operation; transitions or transfers between two mass flow conveyor sections; and package and case transfers into and out of packers, turns and spiral conveyors.
Rexnord recently introduced a plastic modular chain to optimize tight transfers.
