The occurrence of wear and tear and cracking during the application of the conveyor chain are common work, and the general chain shows more wear and tear. Wear is generally due to the chain used for a long time, improper operation in the process of use, the chain used steel material is inferior, etc.

The slight wear of the conveyor chain will not cause great harm to the chain. instead of replacing the chain from the beginning, the chain can be reversely installed so that the worn side faces the sprocket. If both sides of the chain are worn, it can only be replaced.

In addition, to wear and tear, the conveyor chain will often crack. Cracking usually occurs when the chain is improperly used. For example, if the chain carries too much material and exceeds the load of the chain, the chain will crack. Also, during the application process, the chain works continuously, which prevents the chain from resting and cracks.

The maintenance of the conveyor chain is very important with respect to the service life of the chain, and the chain should be smoothly tidied up and dirty regularly. The application environment of the chain is also crucial to the service life of the chain. Generally speaking, it is better to use stainless steel chains, galvanized chains and nickel plated chains in corrosive occasions and outdoors.
