Common Information and facts
We offer one of the most considerable lines of specialty Maintenance Free roller chain items available to fi t a wide array of particular application wants. Designers can decide on the series that most effective fi ts the specific wants in the application. These chains must be specifi ed only when circumstances prohibit using lubricating oil given that, normally, a well lubricated regular chain will off er longer existence in contrast by using a maintenance free chain. In some applications however lubrication isn?¡¥t possible and so the use of a self lubricated or sealed roller chain is important.
General Properties of Maintenance Free of charge Roller Chain Solutions
Sintered Bushed (SL-Series) Chains
Oil impregnated powdered metal sintered bushings release oil to your chain joint due to the friction developed between the pin and bushing since the chain articulates more than the sprocket teeth. These chains are rollerless and thus use thick sectioned powdered metal bushings which might hold a large volume of oil.
PT Kind Roller Chains
Oil impregnated powdered metal sintered bushings release oil to the chain joint because of the friction created between the pin and bushing as the chain articulates above the sprocket teeth. These chains possess rollers to smooth the action over sprocket teeth. Roller link plates are one particular dimension thicker to boost power. Side plates and pins have distinctive coatings to stop rust.
C-Type Roller Chains
Very same as above except the side plates are all regular thickness. The strength from the CS Type chains is less than the PT Sort but greater compared to the SL sort. Attachments with common dimen-sions may be used for this series and consequently they are really frequently utilized on smaller materials managing conveyors.
P-Ring Chains
Specifi ed on smaller pitch roller chains O-Ring chains employ a rubber seal to help keep lubricating grease in though stopping the penetration of grime and various contaminants into the pin/bush-ing bearing place.
Seal Guard Roller Chains
Specifi ed on greater pitch roller chains Seal Guard chains make use of a stainless steel seal to help keep lubricating grease in although stopping the penetration of dirt and other contaminants into the pin/bushing bearing spot.
