Tsubaki with the FB series presents a new conveyor chain specially designed for bucket elevators. The dry-lubricated conveyor chain, in combination with specially designed sprockets doubling the lifespan. The noise level is even with the various bulk materials such as limestone or coal low.
The special construction of the chain reduces the penetration of abrasive material, thus ensuring that important for the life of the chain lubrication between pins and bushings for a long time. This doubles the wear resistance as compared to the previous series and reduces noise by an average 2 dB.
FB series to include sprockets with patented, removable and flame coated tooth flanks. With this combination of chain and chain bucket elevators can be operated longer and quiet.
In the new bucket conveyor chain O-rings are used between the tabs. Their sealing function prevents material penetrates into the chain between the pin and bushing. In addition, ensure the seals that the lubricant stays where it is most needed - between pin and bushing.
The FB-Series comes with a solid lubricant for high runflat tires and a clean operation of the bucket elevator is used. Solid lubricant and O-rings contribute significantly to the high wear resistance and long life of the chain. Together with the patented, specially coated flame-toothed segments of the sprockets users achieve over previous generations a doubling of life.
