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.

Nylon flights

  • Reduce noice considerably,
  • 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,
  • temperature resistant between -20 °C and + 70 °C,
  • very quickly and easily assembled or replaced.

Nylon flights glass fiber reinforced

  • Same qualities as the Nylon flights but more durable and less flexible for heavier duty.

Zytel flights

  • Same qualities as the Nylon flights but temperature resistant between +70°C  and +110°C.

FDA quality flights

  • Same qualities as the Nylon flights but also suitable for food purposes.
