Stainless Steel Roller Chain – General Info

Type 304 Stainless
All elements are produced from AISI Type 304 (18-8) austenitic stainless steel. This material off ers very good chemical and temperature resistance in the broad choice of varied applications. Mainly because Kind 304 stainless steel are not able to be heat taken care of the mechanical power and wear performance is inferior to common carbon steel chains.
Type 316 Stainless
All components are produced from AISI Kind 316 Molybdenum-bearing stainless steel. The molybdenum provides the alloy superior overall corrosion resistance in contrast with Kind 304 stainless steel especially increased resistance to pitting and strain corrosion cracking inside the presence of chlorides. Mechanical strength and wear efficiency are equivalent to Form 304 stainless steel chain.
600 Series Stainless
Pins, bushings and rollers are produced from 17-4PH stainless steels which can be age hardened for improved resistance to wear elongation. The corrosion resistance of this series is comparable (although somewhat inferior) to Style 304 stainless steel. The operating temperature variety of this materials having said that is also not as wide as Kind 304 stainless steel.
Mega Chain:
All parts are produced from AISI Style 304 (18-8) austenitic stainless steel. Readily available in two versions (Mega Chain and Mega Chain II) which use diff erent physical confi gurations to obtain extra power that is comparable to that of carbon steel chains. The operating loads of these chains are superior to that of standard 304 stainless steel chains as a result of a better pin/bushing bearing parts. Furthermore each versions possess a exceptional labyrinth kind seal layout that helps protect against the penetration of abrasive foreign materials for the internal wearing components.
