Special coatings increase the life of the maintenance free roller chain
In its range K&W Transmissies offers the possibility of low-maintenance and maintenance-free chains. Unlike regular chains, maintenance-free chains will continue to operate temporarily without lubrication or with insufficient lubrication. Low-maintenance chains feature a special coating and typically feature special hardening technology on the hinges. Special coatings increase the life of the chain – even with little maintenance! The special coating on the chain pins, bushings and rollers ensures that the chain is particularly resistant to periods, when the chain is not lubricated enough. The extended duration of the use of the chain increases the availability of machinery and equipment.
The Wippermann brand has the very popular Biathlon, Marathon and Triathlon series in its range. But HKKchain also has in its waterproof series a chain with properties that allow it to withstand temporary periods of dry running.
