Double flex chain for glass manufacturing and processing

Double Flex Chain for Glass Manufacturing and Processing


Glass manufacturing and processing require a reliable and efficient conveyor system to move the glass products through various processing stages. Double flex chain is an ideal solution for this application due to its ability to handle heavy loads, high temperatures, and harsh environments.

What is Double Flex Chain?

Double flex chain is a type of conveyor chain that consists of two strands of chain connected by cross-members. The design allows the chain to bend around corners without the need for additional guides or supports. This flexible design also reduces stress on the chain, resulting in longer life and reduced maintenance.

Advantages of Double Flex Chain for Glass Manufacturing and Processing

  • Can handle heavy loads and high temperatures
  • Flexible design reduces stress on the chain
  • Does not require additional guides or supports around corners
  • Longer life and reduced maintenance
  • Suitable for harsh environments

How to Solve Glass Manufacturing and Processing Issues with Double Flex Chain

To solve glass manufacturing and processing issues with double flex chain, follow these steps:

  1. Identify the specific issue with the existing conveyor system, such as excessive wear or frequent breakdowns.
  2. Determine if double flex chain is the right solution based on the specific application requirements.
  3. Select the appropriate chain size and material for the application.
  4. Install the double flex chain and any necessary components, such as sprockets and guides.
  5. Maintain the chain and conveyor system regularly to ensure optimal performance.

What to Consider When Using Double Flex Chain for Glass Manufacturing and Processing

When using double flex chain for glass manufacturing and processing, consider the following:

  • Chain size and material selection
  • Operating temperature and environment
  • Proper installation and maintenance
  • Compatibility with other conveyor components, such as sprockets and guides

How to Confirm the Problem is Solved and Prevent Future Issues

To confirm the problem is solved and prevent future issues, follow these steps:

  1. Monitor the conveyor system regularly to ensure it is functioning properly.
  2. Perform maintenance tasks, such as lubrication and cleaning, as recommended by the manufacturer.
  3. Track the performance of the conveyor system over time to identify any issues before they become major problems.
  4. Consider upgrading the conveyor system or components if necessary to improve performance and reduce downtime.


Q1: What is the maximum temperature that double flex chain can withstand?

A1: Double flex chain can withstand temperatures up to 400¡ãF (204¡ãC) depending on the material and lubrication used.

Q2: Can double flex chain be used in wet environments?

A2: Yes, double flex chain can be used in wet environments but should be made of a corrosion-resistant material and properly lubricated.

Q3: Is double flex chain compatible with other conveyor components?

A3: Yes, double flex chain is compatible with other conveyor components such as sprockets and guides.

Q4: How often should double flex chain be lubricated?

A4: Double flex chain should be lubricated according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, typically every 500-1000 hours of operation.

Q5: What is the lead time for ordering custom double flex chain?

A5: The lead time for custom double flex chain varies depending on the specific requirements of the application. Please contact our customer service department for more information.
