We offer one of several most in depth lines of specialty Maintenance Cost-free roller chain solutions accessible to fi t a wide array of special application wants. Designers can select the series that very best fi ts the unique demands in the application. These chains needs to be specifi ed only when conditions prohibit using lubricating oil since, normally, a well lubricated standard chain will off er longer life compared having a upkeep free chain. In some applications however lubrication isn?¡¥t feasible and so the usage of a self lubricated or sealed roller chain is necessary.
Standard Properties of Maintenance Cost-free Roller Chain Solutions
Sintered Bushed (SL-Series) Chains
Oil impregnated powdered metal sintered bushings release oil towards the chain joint due to the friction formulated amongst the pin and bushing since the chain articulates in excess of the sprocket teeth. These chains are rollerless and consequently use thick sectioned powdered metal bushings which could hold a large volume of oil.
PT Sort Roller Chains
Oil impregnated powdered metal sintered bushings release oil for the chain joint due to the friction produced among the pin and bushing since the chain articulates in excess of the sprocket teeth. These chains possess rollers to smooth the action in excess of sprocket teeth. Roller hyperlink plates are one size thicker to increase power. Side plates and pins have specific coatings to avoid rust.
C-Type Roller Chains
Same as over except the side plates are all conventional thickness. The strength on the CS Style chains is lower than the PT Sort but better than the SL kind. Attachments with typical dimen-sions can be utilized for this series and consequently they can be typically used on modest materials managing conveyors.
Specifi ed on smaller pitch roller chains O-Ring chains employ a rubber seal to help keep lubricating grease in though preventing the penetration of dirt and other contaminants into the pin/bush-ing bearing spot.
Seal Guard Roller Chains
Specifi ed on more substantial pitch roller chains Seal Guard chains make use of a stainless steel seal to keep lubricating grease in whilst avoiding the penetration of grime as well as other contaminants into the pin/bushing bearing place.
