Chain cements uptime

When a cement producer faced constant downtime due to frequent unforeseen failures of their elevator chain last year, the company turned to SKF South Africa for their expertise.

SKF provided an elevator chain solution that reduced operational and maintenance costs and delivered a vast improvement in reliability, subsequently improving uptime and productivity for the cement
producer. On the back of this success, SKF received a second order from the cement company for an elevator chain as a spare unit.

“Manufactured from superior-quality components, our elevator chain is more than up for the task, delivering optimum and reliable performance even in the toughest of environments, assisting the customer to reach their goal of maximising production,” says Frans Odendaal, SKF Product Manager for Power Transmissions.
