81X Trimmer Chain is 2.609″ pitch and used extensively on sawmill trim lines. It is a versatile, economical and light weight chain that can run at relatively high speeds. It is also available as Heavy Duty 81XH and Double Heavy Duty 81XHH. All 3 chains use the same diameter pin. This chain is also available in 304SS and 316SS for dip tank and other corrosive environments.
Roof Top Chain is available in a variety of sizes and shapes. Chain caps are available made from steel, rubber and plastic or with rollers for the lowest friction coefficient. 81X-A, 81X-R, 81X-UP, WR78-UP, WR78-URT, WR78-4URT, WR78-RTN, WR124-URT, H78A, H78B, H130, H138. Pitch sizes from 1.63″ to 4.063″.
Refuse Flight Chains are used for long sprocket centre distance conveying of refuse products in non-abrasive environments such as sawdust and wood chip conveyors. The chain is fitted with 100mm square low friction UHMWPE covered attachments to move the product.
Common chains are WR132, WH132, WR157 and WH157.
Bin Sorter Chains are used to conveyor the scanned boards to the appropriate graded bin. Typical chains with polyurethane J-hooks are ANSI 3939 (8” pitch) and 9” pitch, 15,000lb BS roller conveyor chain. Drop sorters typically use ANSI C2100H chain.
Debarker Chains fall into 3 categories: (1) Flail chain, ring chain for mobile chippers. (2) Cast chain, for various machines in alloy or manganese steel c/w through hardened 4140 pins. (3) Twin strand, welded steel chain c/w hardened steel cradles.
Long Link Chain in imperial & metric configurations are available in a range of pitch sizes. Round, oval & square link to suit different applications.
Available in alloy steels, manganese, with through or case hardened options. High hardness, reduced elongation, resistant to shock loading.

Sharp Chains have 6” pitch block and bar. These are heavy duty chains used for accurate high volume primary breakdown of logs through the bandsaws. These chains are precision made and run on special plastic beds and purpose designed hardened sprockets.
Double Length Infeed & Auto-Rotation Conveyor Chains are heavy duty cranked link roller chains with precision located log cradle attachments. They are used for the scanning and optimisation of logs before the bandsaws.
Drop Forged Chain also known as En-Masse chains. These versatile and simple chains are high strength and wear resistant. They are capable of conveying a multitude of products on inclines up to vertical and at temperatures of up to 1000 °C.
Common sizes are 102mm, 142mm and 260mm pitch.
Steel Pintle Chains have open barrels and were originally developed for the agricultural industry. Generally, they are used in applications such as spreaders, feeder systems and spray boxes where sticky substances would otherwise seize a closed barrel type chain.
Common chains are 667X, 667K, and 88K with pitch sizes from 1.664″ to 2.609″.
Sewerage Treatment Chains are available in either steel or plastic, with the plastic chains becoming more common due to their resistance to corrosion, light weight and ease of installation. For example, PC720S (6.000” pitch) or PC78 (2.609” pitch) chains. Their metal counterparts being WR720S and WR78.
Rivetless Chains are drop forged from carbon steel, normalised, heat treated and quenched. This very simple chain design allows for tool free assembly or disassembly at any pitch in the chain. The standard chain allows for general applications, whereas the X-Series is specifically designed for overhead trolley conveyors. 3, 4, 6 & 9″ pitch size available.
Metric Conveyor Chains or European Metric chains are made according to 3 different styles DIN8167, DIN 8165 and SMS 1698. They are multi-purpose straight side bar conveyor chains useful for a multitude of applications.
Pitches vary from 40mm to 500mm and ultimate tensile strengths from 40kN to 900kN.
Double Flex Chains are Bi-Planer in nature and are designed to flex in two directions. They usually run around a horizontal radius and then return under the conveyor. Typical applications would be bottling conveyors, log turning and taking lumber around a bend. Common chains are malleable CC600 and DF3500.
British Standard Roller Conveyor Chains are generally manufactured to BS4116.Pt4.1992. They are multi-purpose straight side bar conveyor chains useful for a multitude of applications. Pitches vary from 50.8mm (2”) to 381mm (15”) and ultimate tensile strengths from 26.7kN (6,000lb) to 750kN (170,000lb). Pins can be solid or hollow and the rollers can be either plain or flanged style. Many types of attachments can be fitted either as integral links or welded on.

Your Chain Needs Sprockets, So We Do Sprockets Too
New chain runs best with new sprockets. For any chain we stock we can also supply matching sprockets in nz that are either off the shelf, fabricated in-house or directly imported from one of our many conveyor chain suppliers. One of specialties is conveyor chain split sprockets. Split sprockets are the ideal sprocket especially in areas of limited working space. They are simple and easy to assemble in hard-to-get areas. Our range of split sprockets for conveyor and wood processing chains allow for the sprocket to be assembled without having to dismount the shaft assembly.
