Highest wear resistance readily available by sealing grease concerning pins and bushings
The sturdiness of chain is significantly improved given that grease is sealed in between the pins and bushings by O-rings. The O-ring chain could be the most dependable model of your Greatest Life Chain Series with its superb put on resistance even within the circumstances or environments in which chain upkeep is difficult.
Advised employs.
?Conditions in which regular chain substitute is required resulting from put on stretch
?Conditions where lubrication throughout the service is not possible
?In an atmosphere with considerably soil, sand, dust, etc.
?Applications that demand strength larger than that of the sintered bushing roller chain
Other capabilities
?Cutting down noise. (The noise level is three dB reduced in contrast to conventional roller chains.)
?Decreasing vibration with the friction designed by O-Ring. (The electrical power loss because of the friction is nearly negligible, since the frictional force concerning the pins and bushings is for typically inside the applications.)
Choice of chains
The strength of an O-ring chain is almost the same as that of a normal roller chain. (Because the pins are longer than these of regular roller chain, the typical rupture strength is slightly reduce.)
For deciding on a suitable chain, refer to “Selection of Chains” .
Once the support ambient temperature is larger than 80° C, unique heat resistant O-rings need to be utilised. In this case, speak to us for additional details.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset links
Two kinds of connecting backlinks can be found: clearance fit and interference match. When high power or durability is required, use interference-fit connecting website link. Only 2POJ is accessible because the offset link for all sizes.
Sprockets
O-ring chain makes use of longer pins than a common roller chain. When using multiplex O-ring chain, the typical sprocket for multiplex chains can’t be used.
Caution
O-ring chain is not really suggested in applications in which solvents or other substances may possibly assault “Nitric Rubber”. Distinctive material O-rings can also be accessible for these ailments: Please consult us for information. Usually, “Nitric Rubber” is damaged by make contact with with the following chemical elements.
