FB ChainConveyor Chain Elongation and Wear Detector
Determine conveyor chain wear with gauge
A new gauge can measure elongation and wear on leaf chains with a 0.325- to 3-inch pitch.
The device’s V-jaws ensure correct positioning once a technician sets the nominal pitch of the chain, then measures over the number of pins displayed on the front of the tool.
This allows for an accurate comparison of the chain’s actual length to the nominal pitch length and calculation of percentage wear. Wear is shown in 0.25% increments, from 0% to 4% worn, with a red warning box appearing at 2%.
