Conveyor Chain, Attachment Conveyor Chain & Specialised Conveyor Chain

Chain & Drives manufactures a comprehensive range of Standard and Special Conveyor Chains.


Chain & Drives conveyor chain range is manufactured for a variety of applications to BS, DIN and ISO standard specifications in breaking loads from 13kN (3,000lbf) to 900kN (203,000lbf) including metric and imperial pitch sizes. Solid bearing pin, hollow bearing pin, deep side plate, plain or flange rollers are just some of the chain varieties available. Chains can be supplied in steel, stainless steel, nickel plated and with zinc sherardised anti-corrosion treatment. Pitch size from 38.1mm to 500mm. Stocks of common size chains and attachments are held in our stock.

Our factories are equipped to world class standards incorporating the latest technology and manufacturing methods to provide the best-engineered product available on the market. Chain & Drives has a strong design group with experience in all industries and applications including Mining and Mineral Processing, Steel, Sugar, Timber, Automotive and the Food & Packaging Industries to name a few.


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 Conveyor Chain design.

ISO Standard

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.

Hollow Pin Bearing Chain

The hollow bearing pin type chain facilitates fixing attachments to outer links by bolting through the hollow bearing pins and is suitable for use in all normal conditions. The attachments may be bolted up tight or held in the hollow bearing pin in a "free" manner. Bolted attachments should only span the outer link, as a bolted attachment spanning the inner link would impair the free articulation of the chain.

Deep Link Chain

Deep link-type chains have side plates with a greater depth than the normal chain plates; thus providing a continuous carrying edge above the roller periphery. When lateral flexing of the chain is required to negotiate horizontal bend radii, coned bearing pins are employed. Available in Hollow or Solid Pin versions.

Solid Bearing Pin Conveyor Chain

The solid bearing pin type chain, while having exactly the same gearing dimensions, i.e. pitch, inside width and roller diameter as the equivalent hollow bearing pin chain, is more robust and is recommended for use where arduous conditions may be encountered.

Chain & Drives can locally assemble conveyor chains, fitted with attachments, to your specific requirements and assist with CAD design and manufacture of specialised conveyor chains made to requirement.
