Leaf Chain for Ski Lifts and Gondolas

Introduction

Leaf chains are commonly used in the ski lift and gondola industry due to their strength, flexibility, and durability. Ski lifts and gondolas rely on leaf chains to safely transport passengers up and down the mountain. Using the right leaf chain is essential to ensure the safety of passengers and the reliability of the lift or gondola.

Common Problems

1. Wear and Tear

Leaf chains are exposed to harsh conditions such as extreme temperatures and heavy loads, which can cause wear and tear over time. This can result in the chain breaking, which can be dangerous for passengers and cause downtime for the ski lift or gondola.

2. Rust

Exposure to moisture and salt can cause leaf chains to rust. Rust weakens the chain and can cause it to break. Ski lifts and gondolas are often located in areas with high levels of moisture and salt, which makes rust prevention important.

3. Improper Lubrication

Leaf chains need to be lubricated regularly to prevent wear and tear, rust, and chain failure. Improper lubrication can cause the chain to break, which can be dangerous for passengers and cause downtime for the ski lift or gondola.
