Why Purchase Roller Chains from Supply Services?

Make sure when you’re comparing two differing brands that you are comparing apples to apples. It’s the wild west out there.

Don’t be tempted to purchase the cheapest chain only to have it fail at a critical time in your production cycle.

Our chains offer the following features as standard. We don’t charge you extra for this bump in quality.

Quality and performance are built-in from the factory!

Solid Rollers. This allows for smooth rotation on the bushing, minimising the impact load as the chain engages the sprocket tooth.

Heat Treatment. This ensures consistent quality in all chain components resulting in optimum toughness and wear resistance.

Pre-Lubricated. Hot dipped in special lubricant ensuring all load bearing surfaces are protected increasing wear life of the chain.

Shot Peened Parts. ​All chain rollers and link plates are shot-peened for greater fatigue strength.

Waited Link Plates. Reduces bending stress of the link plate increasing fatigue strength.

Factory Preloading. Preloaded during assembly, minimising initial elongation of the chain.
