Exceptional resistance to corrosion and heat that enables use in nearly all over the place
You will find two sorts of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS variety has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. However, it is manufactured entirely of austenite stainless steel and therefore its tensile strength is slightly decrease than 70% of the conventional roller chain, and greatest allowable load drops to a little above 10%.
By utilizing precipitation hardened stainless steel for that pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK sort has one.five instances increased maximum allowable load in contrast towards the SS variety. Choose SSK whenever you have to have extra strength than SS, or need longer products life.
Both forms have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Recommended makes use of
?Problems exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. Various chemical plats and water treatment plants.
?Situations of high temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Choice of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has decrease common tensile power and optimum allowable load in contrast to the conventional roller chain.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset back links
R connecting hyperlinks are used for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller and C connecting hyperlinks for #80 or bigger. 2POJ offset backlinks are made use of for sizes #25, and OJ links for all other sizes.
Sprockets
Regular sprockets for Stainless Steel chains may be employed because the dimensions will be the identical as normal roller chains.
Caution
As a general house of stainless steel, strain corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion might be caused by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on right shows the data of tests to the amount of corrosion resistance for each medium and will not promise the effectiveness from the chains. Please take into consideration the conditions, temperature, degree along with other total predicament when employing.
