Sharp Top Chain

At its core, sustainable forestry and wood processing has a modern sawmill where logs are cut into timber. The journey from log to timber is a high-tech process designed to optimise the yield from every log that enters the mill.

Attachment Chain

What is attachment chain? Attachment chain is a speciality at FB Chain. International chain standard ISO 606 Short-pitch transmission precision roller and bush chains, includes K and M attachments, and extended pin attachments in section 4 it should be noted that there are a number of industrial chain manufacturers with alternative dimension for K and M chain attachments and the options for extended pin lengths and diameters is limitless. K chain attachment can be fitted to the outer and inner links of a chain plates are angled and have a one or two holes. The chain can be fitted over …

Belts, Pulleys and Gears

FB Chain are regularly commissioned to design and supply gears for a wide variety of applications. Our teams are often asked to visit sites to identify and specify replacement gears on existing applications, which we then fully design and create in our CAD virtual environment. This technique ensures we offer solutions that work. Supply only – working to your drawings and specifications, we are able to offer competitive prices for gears, which are then made by qualified engineers to the highest possible standards. Quality, Material, Heat treatment and Gear graph Certification are also made available to back up the products …

Roller Chain Sprocket Wear

Once a sprocket has worn, it can cause rapid chain wear and will need to be replaced at the first available opportunity. Replace it too early, however, and you could be incurring unnecessary costs.

Transmission Chain

It is a fact that there are more and more chain makers claiming they have the best quality chains on the market, FB Chain’s independent status and knowledge of the market place allow us to cut through all the marketing claims.

Conveyor Chain Sprockets

How to tell when a sprocket needs to be replaced Once conveyor chain sprockets have worn to a certain degree they can cause rapid chain wear and will need to be replaced at the next available opportunity. Replace them too early however and you’ll be incurring unnecessary costs. By examining the faces of the sprocket teeth you should be able to tell immediately whether a sprocket has worn or not. When sprockets are replaced it is essential that they are properly aligned with the shafts as misaligned sprockets are a common cause of premature chain wear. When shafts and sprocket tooth …

FB rEVOLUTION scraper chains

FB rEVOLUTION scraper chains combine the wear resistance of drop forged link chains with the innovation and field-proven features of modern FB conveyor chains. During a meeting with the maintenance manager of a well-known German producer of chip and MDF boards, we were challenged to design a forged scraper chain that could run faster over a longer distance, that could guarantee increased working life, and that could reduce downtime. When selecting the type of chain to be used in a scraper conveyor, the benefits of drop forged link chains were balanced against the advantages of conveyor chains. But while there …

Standard Scraper Chains

FB Chain can provide a range of conveyor chains with attachments fitting wood or metal scrapers, from stock and on short lead times. Our standard scraper conveyor chain features a riveted construction, hardened and tempered link plates and case-hardened pins and bushes. The chain also features anti-rotation flats on the ends to improve efficiency and minimise wear. Welded pins and bushes and higher specification side plate materials can also be supplied for more demanding applications. Attachment Type F22 / F11 Chain with this attachment style is available fitted to the following base chains: FV140A125 – With attachments – x 500 …

INNO Wooden Flights

INNO wooden flights (also known as scrapers) are an energy-efficient and cost effective alternative to steel conveyor scrapers. They are suitable for a wide variety of applications including sawmills, cement plants and biomass power plants. Our flights are made from multi-laminated beech which, when processed and assembled using thermo-settings, weigh one-tenth of traditional steel scrapers but with the same durability. They are manufactured at the FB production facility in Germany, but can be supplied globally. We are also able to produce INNO scrapers according to your individual requirements. INNO chain conveyor scrapers offer a variety of benefits: They’re lightweight They’re wear-resistant There …

Stainless Steel Pins and Bushes

Many chain conveyor applications involve moving products with a high moisture content such as bark, woodchip and peat. In such cases, the internal surfaces of the selected conveyor chain can become rusty and corroded, in particular around the bearing surfaces of the pins and bushes of carbon steel conveyor chain. Making a chain completely from stainless steel can solve the problem, but the higher wear rate and significantly reduced tensile strength generally preclude this option. FB Chain’s answer to this problem is the development and manufacture of a carbon steel conveyor chain that can be constructed using stainless steel pins …
