Its simple design, with open barrel building, minimizes pin surface contact with chain gearing encounter, thus reducing the possibility of seizure due to corrosion and the occurrence of materials build in the roots of the sprockets. The chain is very suited, consequently, in steel pintle chain handling materials with a tendency to pack and corrode. Metal Pintle chain is appropriate a wide variety of agricultural and commercial applications. The chain utilises all high temperature treated components with riveted pin design.
