Stainless Steel Roller Chain - Common Details

Form 304 Stainless
All components are produced from AISI Form 304 (18-8) austenitic stainless steel. This materials off ers very good chemical and temperature resistance within a broad array of various applications. Simply because Type 304 stainless steel can not be heat taken care of the mechanical strength and put on performance is inferior to normal carbon steel chains.
Kind 316 Stainless
All parts are created from AISI Variety 316 Molybdenum-bearing stainless steel. The molybdenum provides the alloy far better all round corrosion resistance in contrast with Type 304 stainless steel specifically higher resistance to pitting and stress corrosion cracking in the presence of chlorides. Mechanical strength and wear functionality are similar to Type 304 stainless steel chain.
600 Series Stainless
Pins, bushings and rollers are made from 17-4PH stainless steels which may be age hardened for improved resistance to dress in elongation. The corrosion resistance of this series is similar (even though somewhat inferior) to Kind 304 stainless steel. The operating temperature range of this materials on the other hand can be not as broad as Style 304 stainless steel.
Mega Chain:
All components are produced from AISI Variety 304 (18-8) austenitic stainless steel. Available in two versions (Mega Chain and Mega Chain II) which use diff erent physical confi gurations to get more power that is definitely related to that of carbon steel chains. The working loads of these chains are superior to that of regular 304 stainless steel chains as a consequence of a higher pin/bushing bearing regions. In addition each versions possess a exceptional labyrinth style seal design that assists reduce the penetration of abrasive foreign resources towards the inner wearing components.
