Why a High quality chain Isn't Always the Silver Bullet: A Guide to Choosing and Installing the Right Chain

Ever throw money at a production problem by installing a top-of-the-line chain, only to see results stay stagnant? You're not alone. Here's the truth: a quality chain is crucial, but it's just one piece of the puzzle. Let's explore what else to consider when choosing and installing a chain to ensure it functions optimally.

Knowing Your Environment Matters

Chains have their limits. High humidity, dust, extreme temperatures, or product contamination can rapidly wear down any chain, regardless of quality. It simply wasn't designed for those conditions. Assess your production environment and choose a chain with appropriate corrosion resistance or dust protection features.

Calculation Counts

Did you correctly calculate the chain size from the start? Even a high-quality replacement might not solve the issue if the standard size itself is incorrect. Different manufacturers have slight variations within the standard size, and tear indicators may vary based on ISO standards. Double-check your calculations for optimal performance.

The Misalignment Trap

Misaligned actuators are a sneaky culprit! This creates uneven chain load, leading to uneven wear, additional stress, and potential chain breakage. Regularly check for and correct actuator misalignment to ensure a smooth ride for your chain (and your production).

Sprocket Synergy

Tempting as it may be to save money by keeping old sprockets when installing a new chain, resist the urge. A new chain on old, worn sprockets can wear out even faster – sometimes in as little as half the time! Investing in new sprockets alongside your new chain is a wise choice for long-term efficiency.

The Power of Lubrication


Chain lubrication is your chain's best friend. The right type, amount, and application frequency all play a vital role in chain longevity, corrosion protection, and cleanliness. Improper lubrication can significantly shorten the lifespan of even the most robust chain.

By considering these factors, you'll be well-equipped to choose and install the perfect chain for your production needs. Remember, a holistic approach is key. A high-quality chain paired with proper maintenance and compatible components is the recipe for smooth operation and cost savings in the long run.
