Providing a 75% open design, MaxiSpan® plastic chain offers excellent product cooling capabilities. Liquids and debris are able to fall through, generating increased production by minimizing downtime for conveyor cleaning. The open design also means less material is used, resulting in cost savings.
A major advantage of the Designer System® product line is the ability to combine horizontal curves, inclines, declines, and straight sections in one continuous plastic chain conveyor, often eliminating transfers. Service and maintenance is simple because the plastic chain can be easily opened in a matter of seconds at any point along the conveyor.
The all-plastic construction of MaxiSpan® chain makes it perfect for running through metal detectors.
MaxiSpan® plastic chain has a pitch of 50mm (1.97") and is available in widths ranging from 209.3mm (8.24") to 1219mm (48") and beyond, in 100mm (3.94") increments. As a rule of thumb, MaxiSpan® plain chain has a weight of 1.3 lbs. per square foot, and a load carrying capacity of 25 lbs. per square foot.
MaxiSpan® plastic chain is available in materials resistant to most chemicals and constant temperatures ranging from -40°C (-40°F) to 104.4°C (220°F).
