Hole Processing Webster Industries utilizes a wide variety of manufacturing processes in order to balance the level of quality to the application of the chain to the overall cost. This results in a minimum of five times the material to resist deformation of the hole under heavy loads.

First the punch pierces the sidebar material producing a heavy tapered slug.000 square feet of manufacturing space and includes a malleable iron foundry. Burnishing is a unique cold forming process used by Webster where a graduated mandrel (punch) is used to punch the sidebar pitch holes.

Webster’s sealed joint design comprises a resilient Buna N Quad Seal housed in a hardened steel insert pressed over both ends of the bushings. Webster’s standard Sealed Joint chains are rated up to 250°F. At the same time it also helps retain the factory installed grease between the pins and bushings thus enhancing chain performance and wear life. Webster also offers high temperature seals for applications 400°F and intermittent 500°F. Turbo Series Webster’s TS chains meet or exceed our competition in hardness and case depth measurements. This series is so reliable that we back up the chain with an exclusive FOUR YEAR performance guarantee specifically designed for the cement industry. acts as a barrier keeping conveyed material and foreign particles out of the pin/bushing interface.
