With extreme conditions expected in an
incineration plant environment, high temperatures and abrasives
are daily challenges. The Tsubaki RF Conveyor Chains with
its robust design performs outstandingly in such environments.
Despite Singapore's very small size, there are incineration
plants located in Tuas, Clementi and Senoko, and AsiaMech
Engineering, with more than 20 years' experience in the field,
have been successful in supplying the Tsubaki RF Conveyor
Chains to these plants.
RF Conveyor Chains with various attachments are used to meet
different requirements in the incineration plants. One application
is to convey wet ash and slag metal with temperatures of up
to 60o C. Another area of application in the plant is to convey
fly ash from the Electrostatic Precipitator bypass gate to the
table feeder. This system operates continuously round the clock
at a speed of 8.7m/min and with the temperature of the fly ash
going up to 80oC. The strains on the chains are very intense
but the Tsubaki RF Conveyor Chains have been meeting the challenges
Some of the features of the Tsubaki RF Conveyor Chains are as follows:
Thousands of combinations of steel materials and specifications of component parts are available in addition to standard chain specifications.
RF Conveyor Chains, although made of special alloy steels, are standardized in the respective stages from design to production and are always carried in stock in large quantities to ensure quick deliveries.
RF Standard Conveyor Chains are uniform and high quality with continually improving production technology and standardization. This high quality ensures longer equipment life and reduced maintenance costs.
Link Plates are the component parts receiving chain tension. This holes for press-fitted pins or bushings are accurately punched to maintain uniform pitch.
Rollers are free to rotate over the bushings. When the chain engages with the sprocket, rollers work as bearings and serve to reduce shock and wear. When the chain is running on rails or wear strips, the rollers reduce running friction on the chain.
Bushings are made to obtain high wear resistance then press-fitted to the roller link plates, providing a bearing surface for pin rotation.
Pins are made to exact specifications for high strength, sturdiness and wear resistance, then rigidly press-fitted to the link plates. Pins resist shearing force through chain tension and rotate in the bushings, providing bearing surfaces when the chain articulates over a sprocket.
Attachments are provided when necessary for fixing attachments tot he chain. Easy detachable T-pins are used on every pin to facilitate easy disconnection at the required link. Connecting links are not necessary.
