Top quality corrosion resistant chains ensure it is always sunny

A manufacturer of rotating solar panels that track the sun as it travels across the sky has switched from an underperforming drive chain to a long life, corrosion resistant chain made by Tsubaki. This has reduced the need for expensive in-field maintenance and frequent replacement, thus shortening the payback time of every installation.

Mine operator switches to Cam Clutch backstop to prevent material pile up and reduce maintenance

A global mining operator has upgraded the backstop on its incline conveyors to non-rollover cam technology to prevent material pile up on stops and stalls. Tsubaki's Cam Clutch design also incorporates rollers, contributing to longer life operation, enhanced by a labyrinth seal for significantly reduced ingress. As well as enhancing operational efficiency, the backstop will also give the operator a reduced total cost of ownership.

Chains: reducing long-term cost with the best choices for harsh environments

Exposure to challenging environmental conditions is when the ultimate performance and durability of an industrial chain is really tested. From corrosive atmospheres to washdown environments, a chain correctly specified for its application will increase lifespan, reduce burden of maintenance and minimise downtime. In such applications it is often possible to reduce total cost of ownership by installing specialty chain.
