The new RexPro engineered steel chain (ESC) from Regal Rexnord offers the strength and durability of engineered steel chain with its exclusive field connection link, which makes assembling and maintaining engineered steel chain safer, faster, easier and more cost effective than other chains, according to the manufacturer.
RexPro ESC is ideal for chain bucket elevator applications in cement and other bulk material-handling operations.
With RexPro ESC, a single worker can easily assemble the chain with the proper interference fit to ensure optimum performance and maximum wear life using tools available to every mechanic or maintenance worker eliminating the need for cumbersome methods or other homegrown solutions.
“Our customers have complained for years that using existing manufacturer-approved tools to achieve a factory fit at the field connections is too difficult,” said Fred Lueneburg, Regal Rexnord global chain product manager. “They complain that the tools are too heavy and bulky. We are proud to be the only company to offer this safer, more intuitive solution.”
By maximizing the life of the chain and reducing unscheduled outages, maintenance time, manpower and emergency costs, the RexPro ESC with its exclusive field connection link is a far more cost-effective engineered steel chain than other options, Regal Rexnord stated.
Over the life of the chain, the company said the RexPro ESC can save the user up to $65,000 annually by reducing annualized material cost; reducing the likelihood of accidents, injury, repair, insurance fees and fines that are associated with chain failures due to less-than-optimal assembly of engineered steel chain.
