Chain is one of the most widely used moving media in mechanical handling systems, being robust and very adaptable, but it is also one of the most neglected components within such equipment when general or routine maintenance is carried out.
In many cases the chain product is attended to only when problems occur. In most cases those problems can easily be avoided by adhering to a thorough maintenance routine that includes the chain itself.
Despite working in a wet working environment for over 60 years, the end-of-life inspection revealed this Renold chain to still be in good condition.
This can mainly be attributed to the maintenance schedule undertaken by the customer.
