Chain is a double-edge sword. Every sawmill needs it, moving chain could be considered the lifeblood of the mill. But chain is abrasive and downtime is costly to replace worn chain or chain beds. One possible solution is Redco™ Chain Cap. This plastic cap has a low-coefficient of friction and is quite durable.
Because the chain cap is attached directly to the chain it prevents wear to both the chain and the chain bed. The slick plastic cap can reduce electricity costs as it takes less power to pull. There are some side benefits as well – chain cap makes more a quieter process. The cap is also non-marking, meaning it’s not going to mess up your landing or ending tables.
