Superb resistance to corrosion and heat that enables use in nearly all over the place
You will discover two kinds of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS sort has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. On the other hand, it’s created entirely of austenite stainless steel and as a result its tensile strength is somewhat lower than 70% of a standard roller chain, and optimum allowable load drops to a little above 10%.
By using precipitation hardened stainless steel for your pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK variety has one.five times greater optimum allowable load in contrast on the SS type. Select SSK if you need to have much more strength than SS, or need longer products existence.
Each kinds have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Suggested uses
?Circumstances exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. Various chemical plats and water treatment plants.
?Circumstances of large temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Selection of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has lower common tensile strength and optimum allowable load compared on the standard roller chain.
Connecting back links and offset backlinks
R connecting hyperlinks are used for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller sized and C connecting hyperlinks for #80 or larger. 2POJ offset hyperlinks are utilised for sizes #25, and OJ hyperlinks for all other sizes.
Sprockets
Regular sprockets for Stainless Steel chains can be used because the dimensions will be the similar as common roller chains.
Caution
Being a basic residence of stainless steel, tension corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion might be brought on by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on correct shows the information of tests over the degree of corrosion resistance for every medium and won’t promise the performance in the chains. Please consider the ailments, temperature, degree and other general situation when working with.
