Bedding in (also known as run in)

Bedding in is where a chain experiences a high degree of wear at the start of its service life. After this initial phase, the chain wears at a steady rate.

 

BITA

BITA stands for British Industrial Truck Association and is an organisation that provides support and information for forklift truck and forklift truck component manufacturers and suppliers. BITA is also involved in setting technical standards for the industry.

 

BL series (also known as LH series)

BL series is a type of leaf chain manufactured according to ISO4347, DIN8152, ANSI B29.8 and NFE26107. BL (LH) series leaf chain is the only leaf chain that is constructed from specific leaf chain components. It is a heavy duty chain used for forklift trucks, lifting and materials handling equipment.

 

Bottom diameter (also known as root diameter)

The bottom diameter of a sprocket is the lowest point of a tooth. It is equal to the pitch circle diameter minus the chain roller diameter.

 

Breaking load (also known as tensile strength, ultimate tensile strength or UTS)

The breaking load is the load at which a chain will break. It is not intended to be a working load and is used merely as comparison of the relative strength of different chains.

 

BS

BS stands for British Standards Institute which exists to set and promote international manufacturing standards.

 

Bush

A bush is a tubular metal sleeve or lining fitted to the inner link of a chain to serve as a bearing or guide.
