Conveyor chain calculation

Important note

  • Selection of the right chain is affected by a number of factors, such as chain speed, number of operating cycles during the day and operating load.
  • The operating load consists of static and dynamic loads. Also the environment in which the chain operates (e.g. corrosive or abrasive environment) may reduce its service life.
  • The total calculated load of the chain shall be multiplied by the safety factor of at least 7 as a general rule to ensure satisfactory security for each element of the chain transmission.
