Its simple style, with open barrel building, minimizes pin surface contact with chain gearing face, thus reducing the likelihood of seizure steel pintle chain because of corrosion and the occurrence of material build in the roots of the sprockets. The chain is quite suited, for that reason, in handling materials with a tendency to pack and corrode. Metal Pintle chain is appropriate a wide variety of agricultural and industrial applications. The chain utilises all high temperature treated components with riveted pin style.
