Benefits of Hytrol’s Plastic Chain Conveyor Line, Connex™

Plastic chain conveyors are utilized for many benefits—they are lightweight, modular, and flexible, and provide transport for smaller items that are not otherwise easily conveyed. Hytrol’s Connex™ conveyor line offers all these benefits of a plastic chain conveyor plus others. See what Connex can do for you and your business.

Quiet motor

At a sound level of less than 70 decibels, Connex leads to a safer work environment for employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration documents that excessive workplace noise is a legitimate safety concern. The noise can lead to hearing loss and an increase in accidents and injuries. The relatively quiet operation makes your workplace safer for employees.

Fast production schedule

Hytrol sets the industry standard when it comes to shipping times. The Connex line is no different. Most standard stock ships in three days and custom orders ship in four to six weeks.
