Improvement of chain durability

Steel link chains are pulling devices, whose maximum service life is normally limited by joint wear and associated chain elongation. As a general rule a drive chain is deemed to be worn out as soon as a chain elongation of 3 % is met.

In comparison a relubricated chain can achieve a 60-time higher service life under the same running conditions as an unlubricated chain. Therefore the choice of lubricant as well as method of lubrication is very important.

For applications with low to average load, where lubrication is not possible, maintenance-free chains with bearing joints can be used as an alternative solution. Contact us at any time for further information about this topic.
