power transmission chain / steel / roller / lube-free
Tsubaki Lambda Chain provides lube-free operation for long life with less environmental impact. Tsubaki's Lambda Chains were the first lube-free roller chain in the industry to use special oil-impregnated sintered bushes. Since their launch in 1988, our wide line-up of Lambda Chains has been adopted in diverse industries and applications to help customers reduce overall long-term costs. Lambda Chain is available in BS and ANSI standards in single or double strand formations, and in various specifications to handle diverse environmental needs. The oil in the sintered bushes is NSF-H1 food grade oil for use on food manufacturing equipment.
Tsubaki Lambda Chain is available up to RS160 size. Also available in the lube-free Lambda Series are RS Double Strand Compatible Lambda Chain, which features the same transverse pitch as standard double strand chain to allow users to go lube-free without changing their sprockets and a higher multi-strand factor (1.7) for 20% higher kW ratings, and Lambda Rollers, which are outboard rollers and top rollers with oil-impregnated sintered bearings incorporated into steel rollers for lube-free operation. (Outboard rollers and top rollers would normally require additional lubrication, even if the base chain was Lambda Chain.)
Tsubaki also offers RS Double Strand Compatible Lambda Chain, Lambda outboard and top rollers, and RS160 size Lambda Chain.
