RENOLD Standard Conveyor Chains are manufactured for a variety of applications to BS, DIN and ISO standard specifications in breaking loads from 13kN (3000lbf) to 900kN (203000lbf) 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 Melbourne and Auckland warehouses and some branches.

RENOLD Special Conveyor Chains Renold Australia manufactures a comprehensive range of Standard and Special Conveyor Chains at its factory located in Mulgrave, Victoria. This factory is equipped to worldclass standards incorporating the latest technology and manufacturing methods to provide the best-engineered product available on the market. Renold Australia 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 Renold 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 ChainThe 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 ChainDeep link-type chains have sideplates 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 ChainThe 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.

Roller Chain and Transmission Chain

Double pitch is primarily another form of conveyor chain using the round parts from a standard transmission chain. Both BS and ANSI ranges of chain are available in double pitch and bush chain forms. Each bearing consists of a bearing pin and bush on which the chain roller revolves. Small and large pitch chain.


Leaf Chain by Renold

Our range of leaf chain for materials handling applications is used worldwide for straddle carriers, forklift trucks and on major civil engineering works such as flood defence barriers. Chain pitch Pitch (distance between each pin or plate hole) accuracy and pin hole diameters (holes in link plates) are maintained on every component during manufacture.

Custom made worm gear sets - including dual lead technology. Worm gear units - single & double reduction. Helical and bevel helical gear units.


Couplings by Renold Industrial, Marine, Power Generation, Navy and Mass Transit

The design of rubber-in-compression coupling was originally established in the 1940?s by Louis Croset whose son, Paul, went on to form the Holset Engineering Company with a business partner William Holmes in 1952. The companies success can be attributed to innovations such as continuous circulating oil lubrication, roll end piloting and compound tooth curvature plus the heavy investment in state-of-the-art CNC machinery.


Sprag Clutch

The input member can be arranged to drive the output member in a chosen direction and permit the output member to over-run in the same direction. In general, Sprag Clutches are able to transmit greater torques, within given overall dimensions, than other types of free-wheel device. A Sprag Clutch is a free-wheel device having an inner race, and an outer race either of which can be the input or output member.


Renold - Brands and Product Data

Renold Australia has many very experienced design and application engineering staff and well developed engineering systems, enabling it to provide total mechanical and hydraulic power transmission and chain solutions with individual products and total package drives.
