Snap-On Chains

Ideal for the Beverage, Container (bottles, cans) and Packaging Industry.

Snap-On Chains are designed with overlapping flights assembled on special roller chains with extended pins. This is an advantage at high speeds as it reduces noise levels.

Overlapping flights are an advantage where people work at tray conveyors; they ensure there are no vertical gaps between the flights so nothing can get caught.

All Snap-On versions can be delivered either with a stainless Steel Chain (SS304) or a carbon Steel Chain.
