Diamond® Food Packaging Chain is specially designed for operations that vacuum-package various types of meat, cheese and processed foods. This features a nickel plated chain which offers protection in high humidity or washdown environments, preventing rust as a result. Its carbon steel substrate provides strength and wear performance. Lastly, extended stainless steel pins resist corrosion when exposed to chemicals or acids.
Food Packaging Chain
Features & Benefits
The Diamond Difference begins with raw materials that meet exacting standards for metal grade, mechanical properties, carbon and alloy content to ensure minimization of impurities that impact tensile and fatigue strength.
Diamond designs each component to exacting dimensional standards for optimal performance. What makes this chain “corrosion resistant?” Diamond® Food Packaging Chain is nickel plated, offering protection in high humidity or washdown environments, and has extended stainless steel pins that resist corrosion as well.
Strict control of atmosphere, time and temperature optimize the material properties – increasing strength, durability and wear resistance.
Proprietary shot peening equipment was developed specifically to ensure consistent intensity and coverage of components. Shot peening adds a layer of compressive stress that helps components resist fatigue failure when exposed to repeated high loads.
We use a proprietary lubrication process on all lubricated chains for enhanced corrosion protection and extended wear life.
Following assembly, all chains are preloaded to firmly seat the pins and bushings. This is to reduce initial run-in and extend the wear life of the chain.
