Do you Value the Importance of Quality Tyre Protection Chains?

February 24, 2016

RUD’s Tyre Protection Chains help extend a tyres life by a factor of ten:

 

RUD have been producing and protecting tyres with their innovative Tyre Protection Chains for over 70 years, working alongside many heavy operators across industries such as quarrying, mining, and recycling.

Earthmovers working in harsh conditions in mines, quarries and other heavy industries constantly face damages to tyres, due to punctures and sidewall damage from haul road rock debris and accidental impact. Plant owners know the importance of investing in top quality Tyre Protection Chains to reserve and maintain their valuable assets.

RUD’s tyre protection chains use case hardened alloy chains linked in patented designs to provide a high level of tyre protection and traction qualities. The chains are typically used across fire and hot slag conditions, which can be very dangerous and lead to loss of equipment through burnt tyres.

RUD tyre protection chains offer three wear levels to provide a greater wear resistance on hot and burning surfaces. Sharp edges on the outer surface of the chain and multiple link designs help increase traction to suit a wide range of aggressive and low traction surfaces. The designs and benefits vary to each project and specific requirements

One of RUD’s latest innovation Sideflex: provides a cost effective solution to the problem of sidewall damage to expensive and valuable dumptruck tyres, for construction and mining equipment in particular earthmoving machines. Sideflex is an easy to fit, lightweight shield which simply deflects rock and debris from the tyre wall. The device fits firmly within the wheel hub and almost brushes the ground preventing rock and debris from penetrating the tyre wall. Protective arms radiate from a central retaining ring and form a shield covering the sidewall.
