Stainless Steel Chain (SS/SSK)

Superb resistance to corrosion and heat that allows use in pretty much everywhere
You’ll find two types of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS type has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. On the other hand, it can be produced completely of austenite stainless steel and consequently its tensile strength is somewhat lower than 70% of the standard roller chain, and optimum allowable load drops to a little over 10%.
Through the use of precipitation hardened stainless steel for the pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK kind has one.5 occasions larger highest allowable load in contrast to the SS type. Pick SSK if you will need much more power than SS, or want longer product or service lifestyle.
Each forms have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Proposed employs
?Situations exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. Numerous chemical plats and water therapy plants.
?Circumstances of higher temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Selection of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has decrease average tensile power and maximum allowable load in contrast towards the regular roller chain.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset links
R connecting backlinks are utilized for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller sized and C connecting hyperlinks for #80 or bigger. 2POJ offset links are utilised for sizes #25, and OJ hyperlinks for all other sizes.
Regular sprockets for Stainless Steel chains could be applied since the dimensions would be the same as conventional roller chains.
As being a standard property of stainless steel, tension corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion is usually brought on by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on right shows the information of tests around the level of corrosion resistance for every medium and will not promise the overall performance with the chains. Please think about the disorders, temperature, level and other general problem when applying.
