Fantastic resistance to corrosion and heat that allows use in almost all over the place
There are two kinds of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS type has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. Having said that, it can be produced entirely of austenite stainless steel and hence its tensile power is somewhat reduced than 70% of the common roller chain, and highest allowable load drops to a bit over 10%.
Through the use of precipitation hardened stainless steel for that pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK kind has 1.five instances greater highest allowable load in contrast on the SS form. Select SSK once you need to have additional power than SS, or need longer solution existence.
Both varieties have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Encouraged makes use of
?Situations exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. Various chemical plats and water treatment plants.
?Circumstances of high temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Choice of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has lower normal tensile strength and highest allowable load in contrast to your standard roller chain.
Connecting links and offset hyperlinks
R connecting links are utilised for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller sized and C connecting back links for #80 or bigger. 2POJ offset links are used for sizes #25, and OJ backlinks for all other sizes.
Sprockets
Standard sprockets for Stainless Steel chains may be employed because the dimensions are the exact same as standard roller chains.
Caution
Being a common residence of stainless steel, strain corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion may be brought about by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on correct demonstrates the data of exams on the level of corrosion resistance for each medium and will not assure the effectiveness from the chains. Please think about the problems, temperature, degree together with other overall circumstance when working with.
