MARATHON Maintenance-Free Roller Chain

  • High load-bearing joints
  • High breaking loads to Wippermann standards*
  • Electro-plated components for optimum corrosion protection
  • Sealed bearing surfaces
  • Also in Stainless Steel

*Higher than DIN

The long-distance chain that never needs to be lubricated.

Advantages of Marathon chain

  • Up to 35 x greater service life, compared with unlubricated standard roller chains
  • Up to 5 x greater service life, compared with other maintenance-free chains
  • No post installation lubrication required
  • Temperatures ranging from –20°C to +100°C
  • Clean applications, no soiling of machinery and transported goods
  • Bushes consist of a new type of sintered metal of high compression strength treated with special lubricant
  • Bushes are longer than the chain link width and have sliding contact with the outer plate. Foreign bodies are unable to penetrate the chain joint
  • Pins made of a specially coated, hardened Steel alloy giving a low-wear and pore-free surface, guaranteeing excellent bearing performance
  • The same breaking load as Wippermann standard chains
  • All Marathon chains fit standard sprockets

Application areas of Marathon chains

  • Food industry
  • Electronics and printed circuit board production (PCBs)
  • Television manufacturing
  • Packaging industry
  • Paper processing and bookbinding
  • Printing industry
  • Textile industry
  • Automobile industry
  • All systems where relubrication is either not wanted, problematic or not possible at all
