FB Chain Gauge a Huge Success for Maintenance Contractors in Australia
Posted on 18 Jan, 2013 by gbtrans
In April 2012 GB Power Transmission announced our exclusive agreement for the distribution FB Chain Gauge in Australia. The FB chain Gauge is used around the world by service technicians to measure worn and elongated chain. The gauge offers the technician a simple and accurate way to measure the ongoing serviceability of leaf and roller chain used in many applications including Drill Rig masts. The check then becomes part of routine services for the future ensuring that worn possible dangerous lifting components are identified before they fail in the field. Since our appointment as the Australian distributor GB Power has imported over 200 gauges for distribution to repair contractors and fleet owners in Australia and New Zealand. Both large and small repair contractors and machinery distributors are trying the FB Chain Gauge to experience how easy it is to make sure the chain out in service is in reliable condition.



GB Power has also recently loaded the instruction video on the FB Chain Gage onto our website which also shows how simple and effective the gauge is. Presented by the Managing Director of FB Chain in the UK it highlights what the gauge is able to do out in the field. For further information please follow the link below to our web site to view the video or contact us direct at any time.

The FB Chain Gauge can be used across many industries and applications where the measurement of chain serviceability is critical to the reduction of downtime and the expense of potential breakdowns due to chain failure. In mobile plant equipment that works in remote areas such as Drilling and Construction machinery the identification of worn chains before they are arrive on site is vital for the profitability of the machine and the safety of its operators. The FB Chain gauge can be used on chain from 3/8" inch (9.525mm) to 3" inch (76.2mm) pitch covering almost 90% of Transmission drive chains in operation. The unique, user friendly, professional chain wear gauge is supplied with a protective sleeve and full operating instructions and normally sells for $49.50 plus GST. Fleet and quantity discounts also apply so contact GB Powers' sales staff for more information or email chaingauge@gbtrans.com.au .
