Chain for bakery ovens and provers

First Quarter 2020 Shaft power components

Bearings International (BI) offers KOBO prover chain for specific applications such as bakery ovens and provers. In South Africa, standard prover chain is a 100 mm pitch chain with custom-dimensioned rollers and inner hollow pin diameter. BI can customise its prover chains, however, and offers state-of-the-art solutions from KOBO, such as maintenance-free, acid-resistant or stainless steel chains. KOBO specifically supplies chain products and technology for the bakery, meat, vegetable and grain processing industries, as well as for beverage producers.

The secret to the high quality of the KOBO range is the combination of quality metals and heat treatment to optimise the strength and wear resistance of the chain in operation. Its prover chain design includes an anti-twist safeguard in the plates and on the pin and bush arrangement to ensure no turning in the plates for maximum efficiency. The heat treatment is specific to the temperature and humidity requirements of the application, as well as the consistency of tolerances between the working parts, so as to ensure smooth running and correct alignment between parallel running chains.

KOBO has also designed higher capacity chains based on a range of alternate materials and heat treatment processes, thereby nearly doubling the chain capacity. National product manager, Frikkie Ras concludes that the advent of a plethora of smaller players in the bakery industry is creating new growth opportunities for BI to continue to supply and service this burgeoning sector.
