Conveyor chains for the ice cream industry

The challenge of chains operating in low temperatures, down to minus 40 ° C, in the ice cream industry, is overcome by ZMC thanks to the long experience in designing  for this sector and the use of materials, both metallic and plastic , suitable for extreme cold.

The typical chains with extended pins for the freezing tunnels inside which the ice-cream hardens, are the flagship of a very wide range that comprises products dedicated to other stages of the process, including the filling of the containers and the garnishing of the various types of ice cream.

Maintenance-free solutions are normally adopted in these systems where the low temperature and the extreme proximity between the chain and the food product often make it necessary to avoid the use of lubricants.
