R160 - 30 % are not enough


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.

A specially alloged chain steel signifi cantly improves the wear behaviour with the same breaking force. With a breaking stress of 400 N/mm² designed for particularly rough and heavy duty scenarios (e.g. de-ashers with high abrasive fl y ash content in coal-fi red power plants), it now doubles the standard operating life compared with other chain types and thus signifi cantly increases the operating life cycle of the entire system.

The R160 is currently available in the following sizes:

  • 22 × 86 mm
  • 26 × 100 mm
  • 30 × 120 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.
