Stainless Steel Chain (SS/SSK)

Excellent resistance to corrosion and heat that allows use in practically all over the place
You will find two types of Stainless Steel Chain: SS and SSK. The SS kind has the highest resistance to corrosion and heat. Even so, it truly is made entirely of austenite stainless steel and consequently its tensile strength is slightly reduce than 70% of a typical roller chain, and maximum allowable load drops to a little in excess of 10%.
By using precipitation hardened stainless steel to the pins, bushes and rollers, the SSK variety has one.5 occasions larger greatest allowable load in contrast to the SS style. Choose SSK if you need to have much more power than SS, or need longer item daily life.
The two kinds have equivalent corrosion resistance.
Recommended employs
?Conditions exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic
chemical agents, sea water and wastewater. A variety of chemical plats and water remedy plants.
?Conditions of high temperature
Heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, incinerators
Choice of chains
Stainless Steel Chain has lower common tensile strength and optimum allowable load in contrast towards the typical roller chain.
Connecting links and offset back links
R connecting hyperlinks are made use of for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller and C connecting links for #80 or bigger. 2POJ offset hyperlinks are utilized for sizes #25, and OJ backlinks for all other sizes.
Sprockets
Conventional sprockets for Stainless Steel chains can be utilized since the dimensions would be the similar as conventional roller chains.
Caution
As being a common property of stainless steel, tension corrosion
cracking and pitting corrosion might be induced by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
The chart on appropriate shows the data of tests on the level of corrosion resistance for every medium and won’t guarantee the efficiency of your chains. Please think about the circumstances, temperature, level and other total circumstance when applying.
