Factors to Consider

N/A Bottlewasher/Pasteurizer Chains are used to convey large quantities of bottles at a slow speed through the washer or pasteurizer. Chains are generally matched and tagged to hold bottle racks in exact position between chains without skewing. Chain and attachment tolerances are very important. Usually the chains are constructed of carbon steel for increased economy. Since the environment is wet, stainless steel or plated parts can be used to improve corrosion resistance. Chains can be almost any pitch size; however, they are commonly in the 4" to 6" range. Attachments are usually mid-pitch holes or A styles, but may be made to fit your units. Sterilizers use two strands of chain. Bottles are sterilized by steam, which creates a wet, high-temperature environment (> 200°F). That means chains must be constructed from tem perature- and corrosion-resistant materials, such as stainless steel. Sterilizer chains frequently have a 4" to 6" pitch.
