Plastic flights

Our plastic flights are made of wear-resistant nylon and are flexible. As the chain is carried by the plastic flights, it eliminates the steel-on-steel contact, this will lead to saving energy and a considerable noise reduction. There are various kinds of flights available: Nylon, Nylon with Glassfiber reinforcement, Zytel and FDA-quality.

Benefits of plastic flights

  • Reduce noice considerably,
  • flexible / bendable under high pressure
  • low frictional resistance, saving up to 20% of the energy,
  • less costly; less wear and tear of the bottom plate and the chain,
  • eliminates the need for guiding and wearing strips,
  • very quickly and easily assembled or replaced.
