Types and Maintenance of Agricultural Chains

What are the types of agricultural machinery chains? What is its purpose?

The specifications and models of agricultural machinery chains mainly include:

  • Drive chain: 06C/08A/08B-2/10A/12A/12B/16A/16B/80 OR/20A/20B/80HSP/100HSP, as well as micro tiller (520HF2) rotary tiller (12AH-2) chain, etc.
  • Conveyor chain: S type steel agricultural chain, A typical example is the agricultural S62 chain
  • Combine harvester chain: ZGS38
  • Steel pin chain: 667X

Application scope of agricultural machinery chain:
Agricultural machinery chains are widely used in various agricultural machinery driving and conveying places such as cultivation, sowing, plant protection, harvesting, silage, bundling, and grain drying machinery.

  1. Rice Harvester Chain

    Rice Harvester Chain

    The rice harvester chain includes a 415 series lifting chain with finger attachments and a series of pointed feed chains with pitch of 33mm, 35mm, etc; Adopting high-quality raw materials, efficient process equipment, advanced heat treatment, and shot peening strengthening treatment on the surface of the chain plate, the quality of high-quality anti rust oil products on the entire chain meets the user’s usage requirements. The product is widely used in semi feed rice harvesting equipment

  2.  GS38 Combine harvester chain

    GS38 Combine harvester chain

    GS38 Combine harvester chain mainly includes feeding chain with P2 type attachment plate, lifting chain with Ld2 type attachment plate and corn harvesting chain with WK type attachment plate, which can also be customized and developed according to user needs. Adopting high-quality raw materials, efficient process equipment, and advanced heat treatment, the product has characteristics such as high tensile strength, high fatigue strength, and wear resistance; By developing special rust resistant oils and fats to meet the operating conditions of outdoor agricultural machinery operations; The product is widely used in the harvesting process of crops such as corn, wheat, and rice.

  3. Corn harvester chain

    The corn harvester chain is equipped with attachment plates, using high-quality raw materials, efficient process equipment, and advanced heat treatment, with high tensile strength, high fatigue wear resistance, and other characteristics; By developing special anti rust grease, it can meet the requirements of outdoor agricultural operations

  4. Citrus straw harvesting chain

    Citrus straw harvesting chain

    The citrus straw harvesting chain is mainly used for citrus straw harvesting and transportation, with stable, flexible, and reliable chain transmission. It also has characteristics such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, and impact resistance.

  5. Soybean harvesting chainSoybean harvesting chain

    soybean harvesting chain is mainly used for soybean harvesting and transportation, with stable, flexible, and reliable chain transmission. It also has characteristics such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, and impact resistance

How to Maintain the Agricultural Chain?

To effectively maintain the agricultural machinery chain, it is necessary to pay attention to the following points:

  • Clean lines: Keep the chain and sprocket clean, and seal the lubricating oil and dust spray recommended by the chain gauge manufacturer.
  • Lubrication: Regularly lubricate the chain and change the oil according to the frequency of use and the environment. The sealed chain gauge uses special twisted chain oil, while the open chain can use multi-purpose chain lubricant.
  • Tightness: Adjust the tightness of the chain to ensure appropriate contact pressure between the bearings and sprockets. Too loose or too tight will reduce the service life.
  • Check for wear: Regularly inspect sprockets and chains for wear, tension bars, rust, and broken chains.
  • Fasteners: Check the cleanliness and tightness of bolts, fasteners, and hinges.
  • Replacement: If there is excessive wear, or if the chain is bent or deformed, it should be replaced immediately. The replacement interval is usually 2-5 years, depending on the frequency of use and load.
  • Update parts: Sealing chains and bearings require regular replacement of parts such as O-rings and bearings to maintain efficiency and reliability.
  • Shift gears: Shift the relevant gears and sprockets as needed to maintain good meshing.
  • Chain replacement: Chains of specific specifications cannot be interchanged, and original sources or recommended replacements should be used.

The above points can effectively extend the service life and performance of agricultural machinery chains. Regular inspection and maintenance are crucial to ensure that the chain does not break at critical moments. I hope these suggestions are helpful! Please contact me when needed.
