A customer of ours contacted our technical team to see if we could be of assistance with a chain breaking issue that is occurring on a recently installed conveyor.
The product in question is 40B-2 Chain and is operating as the drive chain for this conveyor.
On investigation we found that the sprockets were in good order and in the correct alignment. The chain itself was a brand which was known to us and indicated very little signs of wear but had failed by breaking the side plates.
We changed the chain to our Can-Am brand 40B-2 which has an ultimate tensile strength of 705kN.
Previously before our intervention this chain had broken on many occasions about 3-4 weeks after replacement.
At the time of writing this case study our Can-Am replacement chain has been running 24/7 for 3 months without a single issue.
