Finding a window of opportunity to repair or just maintain sprockets on industrial machinery is often a difficult & daunting task. Are split sprockets the answer?
Split sprockets come into their own when the engineering time taken to remove sprockets involves the dismantling of large parts of the drive or when multiple sprockets are fitted on the same shaft. When it comes to conveyor chain sprockets which are often large and heavy this may require the use of a crane to get the sprocket into place. All these issues can lead to increased downtime.
