Stainless Steel Roller Chain – Common Details

Type 304 Stainless
All elements are made from AISI Style 304 (18-8) austenitic stainless steel. This material off ers very good chemical and temperature resistance in a wide variety of varied applications. Because Type 304 stainless steel can’t be heat taken care of the mechanical power and wear overall performance is inferior to conventional carbon steel chains.
Type 316 Stainless
All components are produced from AISI Sort 316 Molybdenum-bearing stainless steel. The molybdenum offers the alloy improved total corrosion resistance in contrast with Style 304 stainless steel specifically increased resistance to pitting and worry corrosion cracking within the presence of chlorides. Mechanical power and dress in performance are very similar to Style 304 stainless steel chain.
600 Series Stainless
Pins, bushings and rollers are created from 17-4PH stainless steels which can be age hardened for enhanced resistance to put on elongation. The corrosion resistance of this series is comparable (however somewhat inferior) to Type 304 stainless steel. The working temperature variety of this material nevertheless can be not as broad as Form 304 stainless steel.
Mega Chain:
All elements are made from AISI Sort 304 (18-8) austenitic stainless steel. Offered in two versions (Mega Chain and Mega Chain II) which use diff erent physical confi gurations to get additional power that may be similar to that of carbon steel chains. The doing work loads of those chains are superior to that of typical 304 stainless steel chains due to a greater pin/bushing bearing places. Additionally each versions possess a exclusive labyrinth sort seal layout that aids prevent the penetration of abrasive foreign components for the inner wearing parts.
