Stainless Steel Chain (SS/SSK)

by | Dec 24, 2020 | Product Catalog

Exceptional resistance to corrosion and heat that allows use in nearly all over the place
You will find two varieties of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS variety has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. Nevertheless, it is actually made entirely of austenite stainless steel and thus its tensile strength is somewhat decrease than 70% of the normal roller chain, and highest allowable load drops to slightly over 10%.
By using precipitation hardened stainless steel for the pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK style has 1.five occasions greater greatest allowable load compared for the SS style. Select SSK whenever you require extra strength than SS, or wish longer merchandise life.
Each sorts have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Recommended makes use of
?Conditions exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. A variety of chemical plats and water treatment method plants.
?Situations of substantial temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Selection of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has lower typical tensile strength and optimum allowable load compared towards the normal roller chain.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset backlinks
R connecting back links are utilized for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller and C connecting hyperlinks for #80 or greater. 2POJ offset links are made use of for sizes #25, and OJ backlinks for all other sizes.
Common sprockets for Stainless Steel chains may be utilized because the dimensions will be the very same as regular roller chains.
As a general property of stainless steel, tension corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion is usually caused by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on correct displays the data of tests within the level of corrosion resistance for each medium and does not ensure the performance with the chains. Please consider the circumstances, temperature, level along with other general situation when making use of.
