900 Class Sugar Mill Chains
900 Class Sugar Mill Chains are heavy-duty pintle chains designed specifically for the demanding conditions of the sugar industry. They are used in a variety of applications, including intermediate carrier conveyors, bagasse conveyors, and cane feeder conveyors.
900 Class Sugar Mill Chains are made with high-quality materials and construction methods to ensure long life and reliability. The links are cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal), and the pins and bushings are heat-treated carbon steel. Stainless steel pins and bushings are also available upon request.
One of the key features of 900 Class Sugar Mill Chains is their renewable bushings. The bushings are press-fitted into the links and keyed into place, which makes them easy to replace when they become worn. This helps to extend the overall life of the chain.
Another important feature of 900 Class Sugar Mill Chains is their strength and durability. They are designed to withstand the high loads and harsh environments that are common in the sugar industry.

Why Choose Our 900 Class Sugar Mill Chains?
900 Class Sugar Mill Chain, sometimes referred to as “sugar mill” or “intermediate carrier chain” is used extensively in sugar mills. Multiple strands of 900 900 Class Sugar Mill Chain, available with one or two holes per link, can be fitted with overlapping beaded carrier slats to form a continuous apron conveyor for intermediate carrier service.
The pin holes at the closed end of the 900 Class Sugar Mill Chain link are provided with smooth bushings which are press-fitted into the links and keyed into place. The bushings are renewable and can be driven out and replaced when they become worn. 900 Class Pintle Chain is designed with dual barrels, one on each side of the open end of the links, to accommodate double sprockets. The purpose of this driving method is to eliminate the possibility of material build-up in the sprocket contact area, which often causes the chain to jump the sprocket. Heavy ribs rigidly reinforce these driving barrels.
Our 900 Class Sugar Mill Chain links, with tensile strength from 22,500 to 32,500 pounds, are available with large sliding surfaces to reduce chain wear and prolong chain life. Broad wearing surfaces and heavy cross sections team up to provide a substantial link which is made according to manufacturer’s standards and can perfectly replace links made by other manufacturers.
Brutaloy sprockets for 900 Class Pintle Chain are readily available in 3.170 inches. 900 Class Pintle Chain should only be allowed to travel in one direction; links should always run in the direction of their closed narrow end.
Available in cottered construction only, 900 Class Sugar Mill Chain is assembled with T-headed pins which are locked into place by two lugs cast on the ends of the driving barrels to prevent pin rotation. Pin rotation during operation would result in wear on the inside of the bushing. Both the head of the pin and the cottered end of the pin are protected by cast lugs on the barrel end of the links.
900 Class Sugar Mill Chains are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It is furnished with carbon steel heat-treated pins and carbon steel case-hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless steel pins and bushings can be provided when specified.
Sugar Mill Chain Sprockets for 900 Class Sugar Mill Chains:
Sugar mill chain sprockets for 900 class sugar mill chains are designed to be used with 900 class pintle chains. These chains are commonly used in sugar mills to convey sugar cane and other materials. Sugar mill chain sprockets are typically made of cast iron or steel, and they have hardened teeth to resist wear and tear.
When choosing sugar mill chain sprockets, it is important to consider the following factors:
- The pitch of the chain: The pitch is the distance between the centers of two adjacent pins. The pitch of the chain must match the pitch of the sprocket.
- The number of teeth on the sprocket: The number of teeth on the sprocket will determine the speed ratio between the sprocket and the chain.
- The bore size of the sprocket: The bore size is the diameter of the hole in the center of the sprocket. The bore size must match the shaft diameter on which the sprocket will be mounted.
- The material of the sprocket: Cast iron sprockets are more economical, but steel sprockets are more durable and have a longer lifespan.
