Product Data Sheet – Chain Inspection System

Mobile Crack Detection Unit

The total loading capacity of a chain is the result of the resistance power of each particular link. Therefore, to ensure safe usage and avoid accidents, it is important to periodically check the chain links for surface cracks using magnetic particle inspection. The compact design of our mobile chain inspection system is ideal for use on-site.
