Custom Length Double Flex Chains for Unique Applications

Custom Length Double Flex Chains


Double flex chains are an essential element for conveying products in food processing, bottling, and packaging industries. These chains are known for their ability to flex in two directions, making them highly versatile and suitable for unique applications. However, standard double flex chains may not be suitable for every application, and custom length double flex chains may be necessary to meet specific requirements.

Why might custom length double flex chains be necessary?

Some applications require unique dimensions for chains to fit the conveyor system adequately. Standard chains may not fit, causing inefficiencies and possibly damaging the product. In such cases, custom length double flex chains are necessary.

Possible Solutions

There are three possible solutions when standard double flex chains are not suitable for an application:

  1. Modify the conveyor system to fit standard chains
  2. Cut standard chains and reassemble them to the required dimensions
  3. Order custom length double flex chains

Steps to Solve this Problem

If you decide to order custom length double flex chains, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the required dimensions of the chain accurately
  2. Choose a reputable supplier of custom chains
  3. Provide accurate measurements and other necessary information to the supplier
  4. Wait for the supplier to manufacture the chains to the required dimensions
  5. Install the chains and test functionality

Points to Consider

When ordering custom length double flex chains, it is essential to consider the following points:

  • Material of the chain
  • Type of attachment to the conveyor system
  • Working conditions of the conveyor system
  • Environmental factors, such as temperature and humidity

Confirmation and Prevention

To confirm that the problem is solved, check the following:

  1. The chains fit the conveyor system perfectly
  2. The products move smoothly and efficiently across the conveyor system
  3. The chains are durable and do not break or wear out quickly

To prevent similar problems from happening in the future, take the following precautions:

  • Regular maintenance of the conveyor system and chains
  • Use only high-quality chains that are suitable for the application
  • Keep a record of the chain dimensions for future reference

Double Flex Chains


1. How do I measure the required dimensions of the custom length double flex chains?

You should measure the chain’s length, width, and pitch accurately and provide this information to the supplier. You should also identify any specific attachments required for the conveyor system.

2. Can I modify standard double flex chains to fit my conveyor system?

Yes, you can modify standard chains by cutting and reassembling them to the required dimensions. However, this may not be the best solution, as it can significantly affect the chain’s durability and efficiency.

3. What materials are suitable for custom length double flex chains?

The material depends on the application. Stainless steel, plastic, and carbon steel are commonly used materials for double flex chains.

4. How often should I perform maintenance on the conveyor system and chains?

Regular maintenance should be performed as per the manufacturer’s recommendations. However, routine inspections should be conducted to identify any signs of wear and damage.
