The Polychem product range includes non-metallic scraper chains, sprockets, flights and accessories for the wastewater industry and treatment plants.
Polychem offers non-metallic components for rectangular clarifiers, cast nylon bucket grit elevators, dissolved air flotation (DAF) systems and drag flight grit classifiers. The durability of their chains and sprockets eliminates the need to replace the components for a long time.
With over 12,000 systems and 7 million feet of collector chains in operation, Polychem Systems has become the industry standard for performance and reliability in chain and flight sludge collector systems.
Operating in clarifiers measuring over 90m x 10m as well as in heavy duty stacked clarifiers, Polychem offers proven systems that can handle extremely severe sludge loading situations.
Non metallic clarifier components from Polychem Systems include stub shafts, shear pin sprocket assembly, jaw clutch drive sprocket assembly, sprockets, headshaft assembly, NCS-720-S chain, flights and return rail assembly.
Polychem Systems’ unique, non-metallic headshaft assembly consists of cast Nylon-6 wall-mounted stub shaft spindles and biaxially-wrapped fibreglass, telescopic tube sections locked in place with non metallic collars and interlock keys. The lightweight, water-lubricated assembly requires no cranes for installation and is virtually maintenance-free, eliminating the need for heavy, corrosion-prone steel shafts and bearings.
Polychem Systems’ fibreglass clarifier flights and attachments are engineered for the performance requirements of each application:
- C-Channel, the industry standard is designed with continuous fibreglass filament and mat running the full length of the flight
- Ultra Flight, Box Flight and Ultra Attachment provide superior strength characteristics for wider tank or extreme sludge loading applications
