The new round steel chain R160 for bucket elevators

Merciless? HARD? DIRTY? SHAKEN.
POKED. Desecrated. And still 30% more running time? CLEAR JOB FOR THE NEW RUD R160.

RUD offers its customers nothing less than double the service life in the use of bucket elevators and ash removal systems – the new round steel chain R160 has been optimised with regard to a longer service life.

Our special chain steel improves the wear behavior significantly without any loss of breaking force. Its breaking stress of up to 400 N/mm² provides especially for particulary rough and heavy duty operating conditions (e.g. in coal fired powerplants) a better performance in relation to other chain grades and therefore an increase of the revision time frame up to two times. The opreating time of the whole facility will be singificantly increased.

The R160 is currently available in the following sizes:
· 19 x 75 mm
· 22 x 86 mm
· 26 x 100 mm
· 30 x 120 mm
· 34 x 136 mm 
· 38 x 144 mm

The RUD R160 offers improved technical features that contribute to higher economic effi ciency and operational safety. In combination with other products in the portfolio, RUD offers its customers the most innovative tailor-made solutions.
