Wear-resistant and hygienic: Reliable roller chains for infeed and outfeed conveyor systems in the food industry

Reliable and hygienic transport solutions are required in every sector of the food industry, regardless of whether it involves the processing of meat, vegetables or grain, the manufacturing of baked goods, the production of confectionery or the bottling of beverages. Wear-resistant roller chains from Wippermann are highly reliable and enable compliance with the highest hygiene standards. To this end, our high-performance chains contribute to the smooth and thus economical production of food and beverages.


With roller chains according to ISO 606, double pitch roller chains according to ISO 1275, pusher dog chains, accumulator chains as well as special chains, we offer a wide range of drive and conveyor chains for production lines, filling systems and transport systems, tailored to the various demands of the food industry.


In particular, our maintenance-free and wear-resistant special chains Biathlon KS, Marathon RF and Triathlon KS stand for quality "Made in Germany" and are specially designed for sensitive requirements in food production. From high resistance to excellent wear and corrosion protection without relubrication thanks to TRIGLEIT FDA polymer bushings and up to a food-safe design, we offer our customers in the food industry precision chain systems for high-performance food production.

Compliance with hygiene regulations and maintenance-free use in sensitive production areas of the food industry

Compliance with the stringent hygiene regulations in the food industry, which result among other things from the EC Directive 1935/2004 and the FDA approval, is essential. Therefore, particularly high demands are placed on chain systems for the transport of food: For example, under the respective process conditions of food production, they must be resistant to water impingement, cleaning or sterilizing agents as well as fats and fatty acids. In addition, the use of conventional lubricants is often not possible or completely ruled out in some areas.


Temperature-resistant precision chains for the bakery and meat processing industries

When producing baked goods in the food industry, the temperature resistance of the drive chains used is of great importance. In bakery lines, tunnel ovens and pre-bake ovens, the drive chains must function smoothly even at high temperatures. Our high-performance chains of the Triathlon HT brand have been specially developed for extreme conditions and are ideal for application areas of up to plus 200 degrees Celsius.


In meat processing or in the production of frozen food, not only food hygiene, but also the permanently humid environment and low temperatures play an important role. Our corrosion-resistant high-performance chain Triathlon KS is perfect for this purpose. This high-performance chain offers reliable drive performance in production areas with permanent exposure to moisture and in deep-freeze environments with temperatures down to minus 30 degrees Celsius.
