Understanding the Versatility and Functionality of Stainless Steel Chains

Stainless Steel Chains are renowned for their excellent resistance to corrosion and heat, thereby making them a versatile choice for various applications. These chains come in two distinct styles: SS and SSK, each with unique properties to cater to different needs.

Exploring the Two Styles of Stainless Steel Chains

The SS type of Stainless Steel is known for its superior resistance to corrosion and heat. It is crafted completely from austenite stainless steel, which makes it slightly less tensile than the standard . This results in a maximum allowable load that is just over 10% less than its counterpart.

SSK Type of Stainless Steel Chain

On the other hand, the SSK style of is designed with precipitation hardened stainless steel for its pins, bushes, and rollers. This gives it 1.5 times more maximum allowable load compared to the SS style. The SSK style is the ideal choice if you require more strength than the SS style or desire a longer product lifespan. Both styles possess similar corrosion resistance.

Recommended Uses of Stainless Steel Chains

These chains are perfect for conditions exposed to mild alkaline and mild acidic chemicals, sea water, and wastewater. They are also used in various chemical plants and water treatment plants. Their high-temperature resistance makes them suitable for heat-treating furnaces, dry furnaces, and incinerators.

Selection of Chains

When choosing a chain, it's important to note that Stainless Steel Chains have lower normal tensile strength and maximum allowable load compared to the standard roller chain.

Connecting Links and Offset Links

R connecting links are used for Stainless Steel Chains #60 or smaller, and C connecting links for #80 or larger. 2POJ offset links are used for sizes #25, and OJ links for all other sizes.

Sprockets

Standard sprockets for Stainless Steel chains can be used as the dimensions are the same as normal roller chains.

Precautions When Using Stainless Steel Chains

As a general property of stainless steel, stress corrosion cracking and pitting corrosion can be caused by chlorine and chlorine ion (CR-).
