MEGA CHAIN®: Unleashing Precision and Strength for Food and Beverage Applications

By June 27, 2023July 6th, 2023Product Information

Introducing MEGA CHAIN®: The Ultimate Solution for Food and Beverage Industry

In the food and beverage industry, where precision and hygiene are paramount, standard roller chains often fall short due to issues like corrosion and reduced strength.

However, Maxco Chain has revolutionized the game with our groundbreaking product, MEGA CHAIN®.

This stainless steel roller chain not only offers exceptional strength comparable to carbon steel chains but also provides the corrosion resistance necessary for food and beverage applications.

Here we will explore the innovative features and benefits of MEGA CHAIN®, making it the ideal choice for precision-driven industries.

Unmatched Strength and Wear Performance


Maxco Chain has re-engineered the traditional stainless steel roller chain to achieve unparalleled strength and wear performance. MEGA CHAIN® boasts ultimate strength ratings that even challenge premium carbon steel brands.

  • Dual Function Link Plate Construction
  • Inside and Outside Link Plates: Enhancing Strength and Wear Life
  • Labyrinth Seal Design: Protection and Lubrication for Optimal Performance
Cap Style Outside Plate
Inside Plate With Flange
Outside plate “cap” engages the flanged inside plates increasing strength.
Labyrinth seal protects pin / bushing bearing area from contamination while allowing for lubrication.

The secret lies in its dual-function link plate construction.

  1. Inside and Outside Link Plates: The inside and outside link plates of MEGA CHAIN® work together to enhance strength and wear life. The cap portion of the outer plate engages the flanged portion of the inside plates under load, significantly improving ultimate and fatigue strength. This innovative design ensures that MEGA CHAIN® can withstand the toughest operating conditions, delivering reliable performance that exceeds industry standards.
  2. Labyrinth Seal Design: MEGA CHAIN® features a unique labyrinth seal design that serves two crucial purposes. Firstly, it acts as a protective barrier, preventing abrasive particles and debris from causing premature wear in the pin/bushing area. Secondly, the seal allows the penetration of lubricant, ensuring optimal lubrication for smooth operation and extended chain life. Combined with a larger pin/bushing bearing area, this design enhancement results in an impressive 35%-50% improvement in wear performance.

Precision and Automation Made Easy


Traditionally, stainless steel chains in the food industry compromise on strength and exhibit rapid elongation rates, making precision and automation challenging and costly.

However, MEGA CHAIN® eliminates these concerns. With its unique blend of strength and corrosion resistance, this chain enables precision and automation without sacrificing performance.

The heat and corrosion resistance of AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel, coupled with the strength of carbon steel, make MEGA CHAIN® the ultimate solution for food and beverage applications.

By choosing MEGA CHAIN®, manufacturers can meet stringent hygiene requirements while enjoying the benefits of precise and efficient automated processes.

  • Overcoming Challenges of Traditional Stainless Steel Chains
  • The Perfect Blend: Strength of Carbon Steel and Corrosion Resistance of Stainless Steel
  • Enabling Precision and Automation without Compromising Performance
