Chain Guides for Standard and Extended Pitch Conveyor Chains

Slideways specializes in making all types of Roller Chain Guides, all available in several grades of UHMW plastic. UHMW chain guides extend chain life, reduce noise and friction. You can order them in standard sizes, or have a custom order.


Channel Style, Raised Track, Channel with a Raised Track, Mounting Channel

Chain guides are available in the channel style, raised track, and as a channel with a raised track. These chain guides are also available as inserts for mounting channels. The channels are available as galvanized or stainless steel. A mounting channel is welded or bolted into place and allows the UHMW to expand and contract without buckling.


Chain Guides Available in Several Grades of UHMW

All of the standard chain guides are available in several grades of UHMW: black repro – for lower cost; oil-filled UHMW for higher speed; green repro which matches the European guides; static-dissipative for conduction purposes; and HT for high temperatures up to 275 degrees.
