Stainless Steel Chain (SS/SSK)

Fantastic resistance to corrosion and heat that permits use in just about everywhere
You will discover two styles of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS form has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. However, it is created fully of austenite stainless steel and hence its tensile strength is slightly reduce than 70% of the standard roller chain, and optimum allowable load drops to a bit more than 10%.
Through the use of precipitation hardened stainless steel to the pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK kind has 1.five occasions greater highest allowable load compared to the SS kind. Select SSK when you require additional power than SS, or need longer merchandise daily life.
The two types have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Suggested uses
?Conditions exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. A variety of chemical plats and water treatment method plants.
?Ailments of higher temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Selection of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has lower common tensile strength and maximum allowable load compared towards the conventional roller chain.
Connecting links and offset backlinks
R connecting backlinks are utilized for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller and C connecting backlinks for #80 or larger. 2POJ offset backlinks are utilized for sizes #25, and OJ backlinks for all other sizes.
Conventional sprockets for Stainless Steel chains could be used since the dimensions are the identical as standard roller chains.
Like a common home of stainless steel, pressure corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion could be induced by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on right exhibits the data of exams to the level of corrosion resistance for each medium and isn't going to ensure the overall performance in the chains. Please think about the disorders, temperature, degree as well as other overall scenario when utilizing.
