Increasing exploration activities within the oil & gas sector across the globe and recovering crude oil prices are boosting the growth of the overall petrochemical market, which, in turn, is augmenting market demand for oilfield roller chains. Oilfield roller chains are used for the transmission of objects or to pull objects from one place to another in tough operating conditions. Oilfield roller chains play a vital role in the oil & gas industry where various types of oilfield roller chains such as drive chains, conveyer chains, multi-strand chains, etc. are used for exploration activities. Owing to their significant operating advantages such as reliability and durability, oilfield roller chains are used extensively in the oil and field sector. They have crucial properties which include high dynamic load capacity, significant wear resistance, shock resistant rollers, etc. These properties provide several benefits such as high impact strength and maximising reliability in difficult work conditions. That apart, these unique properties and the use of oilfield roller chains provide protection against corrosion, which ultimately improves wear protection.
Oilfield roller chains are produced to high precision. They have uniform wall thickness and are completely free of any tapering. All the parts of oilfield roller chains are shot peened which improves their fatigue resistance. Various stages included in the manufacturing process of oilfield roller chains are ball drifting, shot peening, pre loading, lubrication and finally, ensuring that the chains have uniform quality. Different oilfield roller chains have different applications. Multi strand chains are used to transmit high energy to equipment. Drive chains easily slide over sprockets with the help of holes present in the roller chain. Conveyor chains, on the other hand, are used to move objects in and out of a hole through the drilling line.
