Stainless Steel Chain (SS/SSK)

Great resistance to corrosion and heat that enables use in practically everywhere
You can find two kinds of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS style has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. Having said that, it truly is made fully of austenite stainless steel and consequently its tensile power is slightly decrease than 70% of the common roller chain, and optimum allowable load drops to slightly more than 10%.
By utilizing precipitation hardened stainless steel for that pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK sort has one.5 occasions higher greatest allowable load in contrast on the SS type. Decide on SSK once you will need much more strength than SS, or want longer merchandise existence.
The two kinds have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Suggested makes use of
?Ailments exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. A variety of chemical plats and water treatment plants.
?Situations of substantial temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Selection of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has reduced common tensile strength and greatest allowable load compared to the standard roller chain.
Connecting links and offset back links
R connecting backlinks are made use of for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller and C connecting backlinks for #80 or greater. 2POJ offset back links are used for sizes #25, and OJ links for all other sizes.
Conventional sprockets for Stainless Steel chains could be applied because the dimensions are the similar as conventional roller chains.
As being a standard residence of stainless steel, tension corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion could be brought about by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on right demonstrates the information of tests about the degree of corrosion resistance for each medium and isn’t going to guarantee the functionality of your chains. Please consider the disorders, temperature, level and various general scenario when working with.
