When it comes to providing highly engineered products that improve productivity and efficiency for industrial applications worldwide, Rexnord is committed to customer satisfaction and superior value extended to every area of their business.
RexPro® Engineered Steel Chain addresses longstanding industry concerns, such as safety and maximizing uptime. The new chain design allows users to assemble bucket elevator chain safer, faster, and easier by using only an impact driver while maintaining the industry-leading interference fit Rex® chain is known for. By reducing the need for heavy tools, it allows for faster and easier assembly – reducing the exposure to dangerous work environments by up to 50% or more.
MAXIMUM STRENGTH & EXTENDED LIFE
The use of heat-treating and shot peening increases the overall strength of the chain so that it that can stand up to harsh application environments. A longer fatigue life allows for more cycles under load, increasing uptime and reducing total cost of ownership. The combination of longer fatigue life and precise heat-treating of components creates more predictable chain wear, and therefore predictable chain life, for easier outage planning. RexPro field connection builds on these Rex chain features and makes it even easier to achieve a factory fit at connection points, which is a key factor in ensuring the entire chain performs optimally.
ONE SUPPLIER, MULTIPLE SOLUTIONS
Regal Rexnord has been a leader in power transmission component design and manufacturing for over a century. We are continuously working to meet the highest industry standards and satisfy our customers’ specific needs. Our full line of heavy-duty gear drives, couplings, bearings, industrial chain, backstops, and mechanical components are well-suited for the most rugged applications in aggregate and cement production.
Rexnord® engineered class industrial chains are designed and manufactured to be the longest wearing chains in the most demanding of applications. The end result are products which provide customers with increased productivity, reliable and continuous operation, reduced replacement costs, and less manufacturing downtime.
Choice, Raw Materials Increase Performance
Rexnord ensures the use of high-quality raw materials in their engineered chain, which is an essential component in maintaining uptime.
Superior Heat Treatment & Case Hardness Depth
Technically superior processes are used to achieve full heat treatment of components and increase uptime in the most demanding of applications. Rexnord uses advanced methods to achieve case hardness of intended long wearing components.
Superior Sidebar Hole Quality
Advanced and proprietary methods are used to achieve high-quality, smooth-finish pitch holes in the sidebar for increased performance and fatigue resistance.
Shot-peened Sidebars for Longer Wear
Components are shot-peened through an effective cold working process that consolidates the surface and increases load-bearing characteristics.
Improve Fatigue Strength with High Press Fits
Sidebar holes and pins are sized to achieve significantly high press fits during assembly. This procedure significantly improves fatigue strength for superior wear life and less downtime.
Regal Rexnord has launched a new engineered steel chain for bucket elevators under its trusted Rex™ brand: RexPro™ Engineered Steel Chain. The exclusive field connection is designed to be safer and requires a readily available tool—an impact driver.
RexPro Chain needs as few as two workers to assemble, uses a common tool, and can be connected in half the time or less compared to manufacturer approved methods.
The quicker and easier method can also, most importantly, reduce safety risks. The installation crew can spend less time in potentially hazardous conditions, including less time in-elevator with drop risks, dust, etc., and it eliminates the need for heavy tools or non-recommended installation methods.
Rexnord Engineered Chain is Great for the Aggregate Industry (Cement, Steel & Mining too):
