Conveyor chain, like transmission roller chain, can be manufactured to a number of different international standards. The main standards available are:
British Standard (BS)
This standard covers chain manufactured to suit the British market and markets where a strong British presence has dominated engineering design and purchasing. The standard is based on the original Renold Conveyor Chain design.
ISO Standard Chain
Chain manufactured to ISO Standard is not interchangeable with BS or DIN Standard Chain. This standard has a wide acceptance in the European market, except in Germany. Chain manufactured to this standard is becoming more popular and are used extensively in the Scandinavian region.
Renold has extensive experience in the manufacture of conveyor chain. The Renold specification of conveyor chain has taken many years in design and development to achieve the optimum product.
