Its simple design, with open barrel structure, minimizes pin surface contact with chain gearing encounter, thus reducing the probability of seizure due to corrosion and the occurrence of materials build in the roots of the sprockets. The chain is very suited, for that reason, in handling components with a tendency to pack and corrode. Metal steel pintle chain Pintle chain is suited a wide variety of agricultural and industrial applications. The chain utilises all warmth treated elements with riveted pin style.
