Development of the FB Chain Wear Gauge

Through our work on British Industrial Truck Association (BITA) technical and ISO standards committees we’ve always been aware of leaf chain safety and the implications of leaf chain wear. For many years we stocked a plastic chain wear gauge which we gave away as a free product to customers. However, it quickly became clear that this flimsy plastic device wasn’t fit for purpose. We decided that if we were going to continue to supply a leaf chain wear measuring instrument, we wanted it to be a tool that every engineer would want to have in their toolbox. The gauge needed …

Chain Wear Gauge

Chain Wear Gauge The FB Chain Wear Gauge is a tool that accurately measures leaf chain and roller chain wear and indicates the percentage of elongation so you know when it’s time to replace your leaf chain safely. Leaf chain failure, unless it’s the result of a sudden breakage due to operator error, shock load or overload, is normally a gradual process in which the leaf chain or roller chain elongates as it wears. The accumulative effect of leaf chain wear is a significant increase in the actual pitch of the leaf chain. The FB Chain Wear Gauge has been primarily designed …
