Pewag Tyre Protection Chains
A tyre protection chain can best be described as a close mesh which is fitted over the face and the sidewalls of the tyre to form a barrier against damaging materials.
Heavy wheeled loaders working in quarries, steel mill operations, and other hostile environments must take steps to protect their tyres. Today's costs for their repair or replacement, added to the expense of downtime and lost production of the machine, makes the fitting of tyre protection chains a necessity in many industrial applications.
In addition to providing protection, the chain mesh can also improve traction, especially at the quarry face, where the working surface is covered with sharp-edged loose rock. In these conditions the performance of the loader can be considerably enhanced by the use of tyre protection chains.
Tyre protection chains are not necessary for every wheeled-loader application. A careful survey of the tyre life without chains can quickly establish the economics of the situation.
Pewag have over 60 years experience in the design and manufacture of reliable high quality tyre protection chains and produce an extensive range of chain sizes, link designs and mesh patterns to suit the majority of applications.
The supply of pewag tyre protection chains usually includes installation, and periodic free service inspections and adjustments.
