Choosing Metal Thickness
Experience is usually the best guideline for specifying the metal thickness for pans and aprons. Make sure you consider the following points.
  1. Number of chain strands to be used.
  2. Required service life.
  3. Manufacturing restrictions.
  4. Weight of each apron support. Deflection must be limited to prevent binding between overlapping pans.
  5. Corrosive and abrasive properties of conveyed materials.
