POWER CHAIN Carefully-selected high-strength steels, advanced manufacturing processes and refined heat treatments, ensures the chain has maximum fatigue strength and protection against failure
Included in engineering solutions provider BMG’s extensive range of Tsubaki high-performance chain, is the robust workhorse elevator series, which offers enhanced strength and reliability, a cleaner environment and extended operating life.
“Workhorse elevator chains – manufactured for high strength and durability – are designed to resist the abrasive and demanding forces of aggregate elevators. This chain is particularly well-suited for use in aggressive bulk materials handling environments with harsh fine particulates like cement, lime, gypsum, coal, fertiliser, grain and sugar,” says BMG power transmission business unit manager Carlo Beukes.
He notes that carefully-selected high-strength steels, advanced manufacturing processes and refined heat treatments, ensure maximum fatigue strength and protection against failure, even when these chains are used in the most severe applications.
The workhorse 5800 and 5900 series, with average tensile strength (ATS) ratings between 65 909 kg and 129 545 kg, can be upgraded with various plated pins, bushings and joint seals – individually or in combination – to ensure dependability and enhanced wear-resistance.
An important feature of this series is that extended bushing barrier seals prevent abrasive materials from entering and attacking chain joints.
