Quad Staked Pins
The quad staking on the pins increases overall strength to allow the chain to withstand more shock repetitive shock loads compared to dual staked pins.
Prevents unwanted material from building up in the chain or between chain and root of the sprocket.
After assembly, all Nitro chains are pre-loaded to a minimum load required by the industry standard. Pre-loading seats the chain joint that eliminates any initial elongation in a new chain.
Advanced heat treatment is applied to achieve optimum hardness for strength and wear resistance.
To combat fatigue failure from repetitive loads & wear, a compressive stress layer is added through shot peening.
For proper installation, make sure the wide opening of the chain faces towards the direction of travel as shown in the image below.
