Leading supplier BI has supplied a large order of Kobo chains to cement producers in the North West and the Western Cape. This consisted of bucket elevator, coal reclaimer, and hot pan conveyor chain.
In total, BI supplied 80m of coal reclaimer chain, 93m of bucket elevator chain, 90m of elevator chain, and 120m of hot pan conveyor chain. The bucket elevator chain was supplied to cement producers in both the Western Cape and the North West, while the pan conveyor chain and reclaimer chain was supplied exclusively to its Western Cape client.
These chains are ideal for the corrosive and abrasive environments of cement plants. They are available clad or standard, with larger link tolerances, depending on the application, Kobo Southern Africa Business Development GM Naigel Pera explains.
The bulk of Kobo engineered-class chains are manufactured to order, and are designed for fit-for-purpose applications. All chain comes standard with a 12-month warranty on materials and workmanship, while extended warranties can be arranged.
