Case Study #2

Case Study No.: 50100187
Application: Block Transfer
Cost Savings: $6,972

A concrete company was using a competitor’s RS80 chain with home-made top rollers made from RS80-2 connecting links. Due to the harsh environment (dust/sand/heat), they were unable to properly lubricate the chain as the lubrication would cake up on the side plates, not reaching critical points. The chain lasted six months. Tsubaki recommended SpeedMaster due to it’s added wear resistant properties of the hard chrome plated pins and quad riveted design which enabled the chain to better handle side impact. The end result was 2.5 years of life and cost savings of almost $7,000.
