power transmission chain / stainless steel / roller
Required in corrosive environments (presence of chemical agents as
alkalis or acids), temperature below freezing point and hightemperature
AISI 302-304 austenitic nonmagnetic steels are used for the standard Regina SS series. These chromium-nickel steel alloys (18/8 or 18/10 % composition) are worked hardened in order to improve mechanical resistance. When worked hardened, these steels become slightly magnetic.
These steels can withstand operating temperatures up to 400 °C (752 °F) without problems. For higher temperatures please consult our Technical Service.
AISI 410 martensitic, thru hardened stainless steels are used in
particular on rounded parts (pins and bushings) to increase wear
resistance. Their mechanical strength is higher than AISI 300 steels but
their resistance to corrosive environments is lower. These are magnetic
steels. Production on request.
AISI 600 hardened by precipitation (PH) stainless steels are used in
particular for rounded parts (pins, bushings and rollers) when a better
mechanical resistance coupled with a very good corrosion resistance
is required. Production on request. Magnetic steels.
SS chains are available in European and ANSI standard series.
Stainless steel chains in general have lower mechanical
characteristics than carbon steel chains and their cost is much higher.
For mildly corrosive environments, Chroma Extra or Chemically Nickel
plated chains might be a more adequate solution.
