5 foot sections of Redco™ UHMW Channel (U Channel)
Redco™ UHMW Channel reduces chain or belt wear by reducing friction. Unlike metal-to-metal contact, because of UHMW’s very low coefficient of friction and self-lubricating properties, metal chain glides along the plastic channel with extremely reduced abrasion.
Replacing steel channel with plastic channel also reduces power consumption and saves premature replacement costs of both the chain and equipment.
- Longer chain, belt and cable life
- Reduce energy consumption
- Increase production
- Reduces noise
- Excellent chemical and corrosion resistance
- Easy installation
Standard UHMW Channel is available in yellow (orange is some locations). Several high performance grades of UHMW plastic are also available including Titanium (longer wearing), and Synsteel (pulp-safe) as well as wear beds and wear strips.
Plug welding, standard fastening hardware, and tools are available.
