Uni Chains with Moulded Rubber Inserts
The limit for the incline of a chain conveyor without the problem of products sliding back is usually 3-4 degrees. Uni chains have solved the problem of transporting products on an inclining conveyor. Chains with moulded rubber inserts are available for most of the Uni plastic chain series.
