Chain solution for roller coaster
Drawing on years of experience of supplying special conveyor chain to theme park rides, Renold has recently supplied an innovative chain solution to a roller-coaster at one of Europe’s largest theme parks.
Manufactured at the company’s UK service centre, the new chain was coated with Renold’s dual-process surface treatment that was specially developed for chain to be used on theme park rides and in particular, water rides. The treatment increases wear life, reduces friction and protects against corrosion. The chain was designed and manufactured to a non-standard width and fitted with wear blocks on every pitch to guide the chain and protect the pins.
Speaking about the order, Alec Annand, operations manager at Renold’s UK service centre, said: “We’re delighted to have been chosen to supply the chain required for this iconic roller-coaster, especially as we won the contract on the key issues of quality, cost, and delivery.” Renold was able to manufacture and dispatch the chain within eight weeks of receiving the initial order.
