Tsubaki chain wear indicators
1st Quarter 2019, Shaft power components


BMG has extended its range of Tsubaki chain wear indicators, with the addition of the recently launched large size gauges. Business unit manager, Carlo Beukes says: “We recommend that chain wear indictors are used as part of the regular maintenance schedule of a machine or production line. By regularly checking and replacing chains before they reach 1,5% elongation, shock loads are prevented and sprocket wear is significantly hindered.”

These large size indicators are available in sizes RS-20B to RS-48B and ANSI large size indicators cover sizes from RS-100 to RS-240. These complement the existing BS sets, which are used with sizes RF-06B to RS-16B and ANSI sets for sizes RS-35 to RS-80.The corrosion-resistant gauges, manufactured to stringent quality specifications, have one end shaped to mount over a roller, while the tip of the other end indicates the degree of wear by highlighting the total elongation over a number of links.

Correct chain care involves monitoring chain wear, which can cause a loss of tension, and thus reduced transmission efficiency. Chain wear also affects the alignment accuracy of the drive, which increases noise and vibration levels. If wear is allowed to increase to a critical point, the chain will begin riding and jumping on the sprockets, which causes shock loads, which in turn further accelerates wear. These problems are avoided with the regular use of BMG’s Tsubaki chain wear indicators, which play an important role in maintenance programmes, to ensure optimum efficiency of the overall drive system.
