Rubber Top Chain

Rubber top is designed for conveying finished wood products, glass, synthetic panels, and other sensitive materials without “marking” or damaging the wood surface, this is where the non-marking chain term comes in. We also supply the non-marking chain that utilizes UHMW pieces between the outside plates and roller side plates creating a “soft” surface for not marking wood or other products. We supply a wide range of rubber top that varies in style, shape, and size. More often than not rubber top roller chains are manufactured to British Metric and ISO standard sizes 08B – 24B, but ANSI sizes are also available! Our rubber top roller chains are made using heat-treated precision components and supply ample strength and performance. The different vulcanized elastomer profiles (rubber tops) are made for different applications and offer different benefits per the design.

Advantages of Rubber Top Chain

Rubber top chain has a number of advantages over traditional roller chain, including:

  • Non-marking: The rubber tops protect the surface of the material being conveyed, preventing it from being scratched or marked. This makes rubber top chain ideal for applications where the material is sensitive to damage, such as finished wood products, glass, and synthetic panels.
  • Quiet operation: The rubber tops help to dampen the noise produced by the chain, making it quieter in operation. This is especially important in applications where noise is a concern, such as in hospitals or libraries.
  • Increased wear resistance: The rubber tops help to protect the chain from wear and tear, increasing its lifespan. This makes rubber top chain a cost-effective choice for applications where the chain will be subjected to heavy use.
  • Reduced sanitation costs: The rubber tops help to prevent the accumulation of dirt and debris on the chain, which can reduce sanitation costs. This is especially important in food processing applications.
  • Ease of maintenance: The rubber tops can be easily replaced if they become damaged, which can help to extend the life of the chain.
  • Wide range of applications: Rubber top chain can be used in a wide variety of applications, including food processing, manufacturing, and packaging.

Applications of Rubber Top Chain

Rubber top chain is a versatile and reliable choice for a variety of applications where a non-marking, quiet, and durable chain is required. Some of the most common applications of rubber top chain include:

  • Conveyor systems: Rubber top chain is commonly used in conveyor systems for transporting a variety of materials, including finished wood products, glass, and synthetic panels. The rubber tops protect the surface of the material being conveyed, preventing it from being scratched or marked.
  • Material handling equipment: Rubber top chain is also used in material handling equipment, such as hoists, elevators, and cranes. The rubber tops help to dampen the noise produced by the chain, making it quieter in operation. They also help to protect the chain from wear and tear, increasing its lifespan.
  • Food processing: Rubber top chain is used in food processing applications to convey food products without contaminating them. The rubber tops help to prevent the accumulation of dirt and debris on the chain, which can reduce sanitation costs. They also help to reduce friction between the chain and the food products, which can improve product handling.
  • Manufacturing: Rubber top chain is used in manufacturing applications to convey a variety of materials, including metal, plastics, and composites. The rubber tops protect the surface of the materials being conveyed, preventing them from being scratched or marked. They also help to reduce friction between the chain and the materials, which can improve product quality.
  • Packaging: Rubber top chain is used in packaging applications to convey a variety of products, including food, beverages, and pharmaceuticals. The rubber tops protect the surface of the products being conveyed, preventing them from being scratched or marked. They also help to reduce friction between the chain and the products, which can improve product quality.

These are just a few of the many applications of rubber top chain. If you are looking for a chain that is non-marking, quiet, durable, and safe, then rubber top chain is a good option to consider.
