Drive and Steering Chains for Sweepers and Scrubbers

 

A scrubber’s drive or steering chains are essentially called a chain drive that allows for a mechanical power to run the scrubbing equipment. It is an essential element in any type of scrubber or for any type of industrial, domestic or agricultural machinery to have these drive and steering chains for them to perform their designed tasks. As a consequence of that, no sweeper or runner operator should run the equipment without learning about the different parts, ideas, and guidelines relating to making sure that the steering chains and the drive of the scrubbers run for the longest time possible.

It should be noted that steering chains can be credited to its inventor, Hans Renold, who invented the concept of roller chain in 1880, with the help of the illustrations designed by Leonardo da Vinci himself. As a result, the modern design of these steering chains came to rise and had fully been the driving components of today’s modern scrubbers.

You should also know that the construction of these steering chains consists of alternating links that run through what is called a bush roller chain. There are inner links that are held together by two sleeves or what is commonly called as bushings, which then helps for rollers to rotate, and thus making the scrubber move to their desired path.

There may also be scrubbers that come with “bushingless” roller chains, which run the same mechanism but have a quite dissimilar design. Therefore, to pick the right steering chains and drive for your scrubbers, check first for compatibility by reading your equipment’s specs and features.
