Heat treatment

According to the area of operation, KettenWulf chains and sprockets undergo different heat treatment processes such as case hardening, quenching and tempering or induction hardening. Heat treatment leads to a higher wear resistance of the chain joints and thus increases the service life of the chain.

Induction hardened tooth gaps significantly reduce the wear caused by the continuous interaction between chain and sprocket and hence ensure a trouble-free operation of the entire system over a long period of time. All these heat treatment processes are carried out in-house.
