CHAIN TRACKS and CHAIN GUIDES

We describe CHAIN TRACKS as a plastic insert in which a roller chain travels--plus a metal mounting.

CHAIN GUIDES are simply a plastic profile used to carry a Roller Chain. At our plant, Claremont Polymer Shapes also produces GUIDES to carry Round, Flat and 'V'-Belts. Usually GUIDES are manufactured using black, abrasion resistant Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. This product has slightly better abrasive wear resistance and load bearing capability, compared with natural UHMW-PE, while maintaining its low coefficient of friction. And the black does not show the grease and dirt that accumulates from the Roller Chain. For FOOD CONTACT applications or other such applications, we can supply GUIDES in the natural, FDA-approved UHMW-PE.

For higher load applications, GUIDES can be manufactured from Oil-Filled Cast Nylon 6; the green colour is industrial and the natural, ivory colour, is FDA-approved. This material will bear 2 1/2 times the load that the black abrasion resistant UHMW polyethylene can handle and possesses a similarly low coefficient of friction. While Oil-Filled Cast Nylon 6 is more costly, better performance in higher loaded applications may be worth the premium.

The tables below show standard sizes to which we manufacture CHAIN GUIDES. When inquiring, please specify the material from which you wish the GUIDE to be manufactured. Round, Flat and 'V'-Belt GUIDES are produced to your specifications. Simply provide us with a drawing, sketch or sample and Claremont Polymer Shapes would be pleased to manufacture a custom GUIDE for you.

When designing a TRACK or GUIDE to carry a plastic (or fabric) Round, Flat or 'V'-Belts, it may be necessary to have us manufacture the TRACK-insert or GUIDE from Anti-Static UHMW Polyethylene to aid in the dissipation of any static charge which may be generated.
