Chain l ink conveyor belting consists of interwoven successive spiral wire, which looks like chain link fencing. This universal conveyor belt is the simplest wire belt but functional and economical in conveying light- duty applications. Owing to its large open area, chain link belt makes itself an ideal choice for drying, cooling and heating where energy efficiency is the most important.
Different from balanced weave belt consisting of alternating left- hand and right- hand spiral coils chain link conveyor belting is constructed by unidirectional coils. For a friction driven belt, the belt features alternating sections of left- hand then right- hand. To counteract the tracking issues caused by the unidirectional coil pattern, cross rods are inserted across the belts - one is right- hand woven and the other is right- hand woven.
