Welcome to Chain Wear Gauge.com
The chain wear gauge from FB is the most professional chain elongation measuring tool available for the measurement of chain wear on imperial pitch leaf chain, forklift chain and roller chain.
The FB chain gauge is the most accurate way to measure chain wear and is widely used for the thorough examination of lifting equipment in the LOLER and PUWER regulations. If you are inspecting lifting equipment, with leaf chain fitted, the FB chain gauge should be in your toolbox.
The FB chain wear gauge enables you to track chain wear at each service and take any necessary action.
The FB chain gauge also enables you to pre warn the customer that the chain may need changing at the next service.
