High Precision EXL Chain Hits UK
EXL Chain, a new high precision Roller Chain with superior quality and durability, is being launched in the UK by Donghua Limited.
forms part of the Donghua Chain Group’s Solution programme and is aimed specifically at the after-market as the chain’s precision delivers higher wear resistance and greater fatigue resistance.
EXL Chain is designed with a new hardened, shot-peened wide-waist plate for increased fatigue strength and a seamless cold forged solid bushes and roller to give full contact between the pin, bushing and roller for higher durability.
Optimised cylindrical parts improve sliding contacts which help increase service life and the Chain is pre-loaded with 40-50% of the breaking load and pre-lubricated with high performance synthetic lubricant to meet high workload requirements.
Bob Wellsbury, managing director of Donghua Limited, explains: “The new EXL Chain has been specifically developed by our R&D team to incorporate Donghua’s unique Easy Break Technology. This unique feature enables the EXL Chain can be cut in the field with Donghua’s Plate Extractor tools.”
He added: “I’m thrilled by the introduction of this new Solution chain to the UK market and hope our network of distributors will be keen to see a new design of chain which offers significant benefits over standard Roller Chain including bespoke lengths.”
Donghua’s EXL Chain is available in British standard 06B to 32B, American standard ANSI 35 to ANSI 160 in simplex and duplex ex-stock from their West Midlands warehouse and distribution centre.
