Free professional chain servicing tool giveaway 12 April 2011

To mark its 25th anniversary, FB Chain has a number of limited edition 'gold' professional chain wear gauges to give away to readers of Plant Engineer.

"Companies are looking to get the most from their equipment and avoid the costly downtime that comes with unplanned maintenance. If a chain – be it roller or leaf-type – is shown to have worn excessively it must be replaced," comments Peter Church, managing director of FB Chain.

FB Chain's gauge is claimed to be the most accurate, reliable and simple to use tool of its kind.

"As roller chain elongates the individual rollers start to impact against the flanks of the sprocket teeth, rather than fitting perfectly into the seating radius," explains Church.

"This process then leads to several unwanted roller chain problems – such as hooked sprocket teeth that will eventually result in total failure of the sprocket teeth. Drives become increasingly noisy and inefficient, while vibration increases and leads to other problems," he adds.

While most chain wear gauges only indicate if a chain is worn, the FB chain wear gauge makes it easy to decide if a chain could be dangerously worn out.

"Checking a conveyor or lift truck's chain for wear is essential, because excessively worn chains can cause serious problems," comments Church.

"There is no better precision tool on the market for monitoring chain wear, which is why, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our company, we are delighted to be able to give readers the chance to win a limited edition 'gold' gauge."

To win a 'gold' FB Chain Wear Gauge simply log on to and follow the simple instructions.
