Letchworth-based FB Chain Ltd has produced a short video that guides the viewer through the various stages involved in checking a forklift truck’s chain for wear using one of the company’s unique chainwear gauge tools.
Peter Church, FB Chain’s managing director, commented: “Our new video gives easy to follow guidance on how to get the best results from the chainwear gauge – and gives handy hints along the way – and highlights key points to consider when using the product to ensure that a lift truck’s chain is in safety working order.
“The introduction of the new video means there’s no excuse not to start using this accurate and easy-to-use tool straightaway!”
FB Chain’s chainwear gauge is widely recognised as the most accurate, reliable and simple to use tool of its kind on the market.
Unlike other makes of chainwear gauge on the market, the FB gauge allows chain elongation to be measured to within one quarter of one per cent. Chain elongation is the most common cause of chain failure and the ability to monitor it accurately allows an engineer to assess if a chain is likely to need to be replaced before his or her next review of the truck is due.
FB Chain Wear Gauges have been sold in over 40 countries throughout the world since they were first launched.
“Most chain wear gauges do not offer the accuracy that our gauges offer – they simply show if chain is worn to the point that it needs replacing or not whereas the FB chain wear gauge enables an engineer to judge if a chain is likely to become dangerously worn before the next service, leading to the equipment being operated hazardously.
“Checking a lift truck’s chain for wear is essential because excessively worn chains can be lethal. There is no better precision tool on the market for monitoring chain wear than our professional chain wear gauge.”
