Chains & Sprockets


Each application is different and therefore problems that you might experience on your equipment will be vastly different to that from another operation that is conveying the same product.

That’s why HV Engineers custom design and supply conveyor chains to suit individual applications, which in turn increases service life, downtime and hence productivity.

Our Engineers come to site and collect data before we recommend a suitable chain steel material, heat treatment, and sealing arrangement.

We supply chains for Feeder Breakers, Reclaimers, shuttle cars and many other applications. We also supply a huge range of Lifting chain.


HV Engineers can supply a large range of sprockets for many applications including

  • Conveyor chains
  • Feeder Breakers
  • Shuttle Cars
  • Reclaimers
  • Drive Chain

The sprockets can be a solid or split design. After manufacture the sprockets are heat treated in a computer controlled environment where they are heated and annealed to ensure the correct hardness is achieved for the application.

During the design process, our engineers perform a finite element analysis on the sprockets to ensure the correct material and hardness is achieved prior to manufacture.

Sizer Picks

HV Engineers supply sizer picks for feeder breakers in the mining industry. The picks are manufactured on  CNC machines and hard faced using our welding rotators.

The picks consist of the following components:

  • Pick with Carbide
  • Intermediate
  • Spring Washers
  • Spacers
  • Lock Nuts
  • Weld on Holders

Flight Bars

HV Engineers supply flight bars for many applications including shuttle cars and feeder breakers. The flight bars can be a solid piece or with removable ends for ease of installation and maintenance.

Reclaimer buckets

The manufacture of Reclaimer Scraper Buckets is achieved by the use of Jigs that are made for each different sized bucket to allow for repeatability.

Chain Assembly Tools

Assembling and dissembling large chains on reclaimers, feeder breakers and conveyors is a difficult task if you don’t have the correct tools. HV Engineers design and supply assembly and disassembly tools for this purpose. All we need to know is the chain size and the space requirements at the installation location.

HV Engineers custom design, supply and certify equipment for most applications. Fill out the enquiry form below with your request and we will get back to you shortly.
