Rexnord has introduced a roller chain that reduces maintenance and lubrication requirements
Chain for applications where access is difficult or the risk of product contamination is not permitted has typically been technically complicated and burdened with a hefty price tag. To alleviate these factors, Rexnord has introduced a roller chain that reduces maintenance and lubrication requirements without the usual high cost. The chain is ideal for such applications as vertical storage, escalators and the paper, confectionery, food and textile industries.
Rexnord '5000 Athleticí, the new chain, employs a specially developed chain link. The link pin has an innovative coating that imparts excellent sliding characteristics plus high wear resistance, even where the correct lubrication routines are not followed. Maintenance is further reduced as a result of a special treatment of the bushes that enhances smooth running and articulation.
