The KS type BIATHLON high performance chain has the highest corrosion resistance in its class. On the basis of the standard BIATHLON chain with its already excellent wear protection, environmentally-friendly corrosion protection material of the highest quality is additionally applied when manufacturing the KS type BIATHLON chain.
In salt spray tests the BIATHLON KS proved to be corrosion resistant for a period of more than 1000 hours. Under the same test conditions comparisons showed significant corrosion on competing chains after approx. 200 hours. This long-life cycle has been achieved by combining different surface technologies that do not interact negatively with each other.
Range of application
In a number of industrial sectors, e.g. in the food processing or in the packing industry, humid ambient conditions frequently impede relubrication of the chains. The annoying consequence is considerable chain wear resulting in too short change intervals and thus in unnecessarily high maintenance costs. In this case the combination of low maintenance requirements and high corrosion resistance with carbon steel chains makes double sense.
