While comparing chains a conveyor chain’s durability value is the most subjective value to consider. Its durability is affected by factors such as chain speed, lubrication, loads, and system design among others. Only the hardness factor is controlled by a manufacturer that impacts the other three criteria. It is a fact that the durability the factor of a chain from conveyor chain manufacturer depends on how hard the chain is but along with this comes to lower resistance to fatigue and impact. The more the chain is harder the less resistance it becomes to fatigue and impact.
