Great resistance to corrosion and heat that enables use in pretty much all over the place
There are two forms of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS variety has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. On the other hand, it’s created totally of austenite stainless steel and so its tensile power is slightly decrease than 70% of a common roller chain, and optimum allowable load drops to a little in excess of 10%.
Through the use of precipitation hardened stainless steel for your pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK form has one.5 occasions increased maximum allowable load in contrast for the SS type. Choose SSK once you have to have far more power than SS, or wish longer product or service lifestyle.
The two styles have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Proposed uses
?Circumstances exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. A variety of chemical plats and water treatment plants.
?Situations of higher temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Choice of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has reduce normal tensile strength and highest allowable load compared for the conventional roller chain.
Connecting back links and offset hyperlinks
R connecting hyperlinks are used for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller and C connecting backlinks for #80 or greater. 2POJ offset hyperlinks are used for sizes #25, and OJ hyperlinks for all other sizes.
Sprockets
Regular sprockets for Stainless Steel chains may be employed because the dimensions will be the same as common roller chains.
Caution
Being a standard property of stainless steel, tension corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion may be caused by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on appropriate demonstrates the information of tests on the level of corrosion resistance for every medium and does not guarantee the efficiency in the chains. Please take into consideration the situations, temperature, degree together with other general predicament when working with.
