Tsubaki has announced that a newly launched bench mounted chain breaker has been designed to disassemble single strand roller chains more efficiently.
The new solution is compatible with most European and ANSI sizes of Tsubaki chain, from RS05B to RS16B and RS35 to RS80, and can also be used to disassemble motorbike and heavy duty RS80 chains.
An aim of the design is to ensure for straightforward maintenance and durability.
Chains made with both standard rivets and Tsubaki Easy Break rivets can be dismantled using the breaker.
Easy Break rivets have a centre sink and do not need to be ground before the chain is cut. Double stake and quad stake riveted chains require grinding of the riveted pin heads with an angle grinder before the chain is broken.
Tsubaki supplies these chain breakers from stock and they come complete with tools including a chain breaker, RS35 chain guide and punch, an assembly set and an instruction manual.
