How often do you need to lubricate or replace the rollers on an energy chain system?

Marco Thull | 5. July 2019

You are here:

The service life of the rollers of an energy supply system generally depends on the roller material and the external environment. Free-running or unprotected rollers are exposed to external influences. In energy chain systems, rollers are integrated in the chain link and “lubricated for life” with a seawater-resistant lubricant. A replacement for such a system is not required over the entire service life.
