A US food giant producing cookies, pastries and snack products has described the wear performance of Renold’s long-life Synergy chain as ‘simply astonishing.’ The company has been testing Synergy on what it described as its ‘most arduous application,’ where every other chain that has been used has had to be replaced within eight weeks due to wear problems. So far Synergy has been running on the same application for over 11 months and currently shows no sign of wear whatsoever.
The company’s chief maintenance engineer wrote: “Synergy’s performance and wear life has been simply astonishing. The chain has delivered tremendous cost savings by virtually eliminating maintenance and downtime on this application. We are very pleased with the product and plan on changing the chain we use on all our other critical applications to Renold Synergy.”
