We offer one of several most comprehensive lines of specialty Servicing Cost-free roller chain solutions out there to fi t a broad array of special application wants. Designers can pick the series that most effective fi ts the individual needs on the application. These chains should be specifi ed only when conditions prohibit the use of lubricating oil considering that, on the whole, a well lubricated regular chain will off er longer life in contrast by using a upkeep cost-free chain. In some applications on the other hand lubrication isn?¡¥t achievable and so the use of a self lubricated or sealed roller chain is critical.
Standard Properties of Upkeep Totally free Roller Chain Items
Sintered Bushed (SL-Series) Chains
Oil impregnated powdered metal sintered bushings release oil on the chain joint because of the friction produced concerning the pin and bushing because the chain articulates over the sprocket teeth. These chains are rollerless and consequently use thick sectioned powdered metal bushings which might hold a large volume of oil.
PT Style Roller Chains
Oil impregnated powdered metal sintered bushings release oil on the chain joint because of the friction formulated between the pin and bushing since the chain articulates above the sprocket teeth. These chains possess rollers to smooth the action more than sprocket teeth. Roller link plates are a single size thicker to boost power. Side plates and pins have unique coatings to stop rust.
C-Type Roller Chains
Exact same as above except the side plates are all typical thickness. The power on the CS Style chains is under the PT Kind but better than the SL kind. Attachments with regular dimen-sions can be utilized for this series and hence these are frequently utilized on tiny materials dealing with conveyors.
Specifi ed on smaller pitch roller chains O-Ring chains make use of a rubber seal to maintain lubricating grease in while stopping the penetration of grime and other contaminants to the pin/bush-ing bearing place.
Seal Guard Roller Chains
Specifi ed on more substantial pitch roller chains Seal Guard chains employ a stainless steel seal to keep lubricating grease in when stopping the penetration of filth as well as other contaminants in to the pin/bushing bearing location.
