O-Ring Chain (LD)/X-Ring Chain (LX)

Highest wear resistance readily available by sealing grease involving pins and bushings
The durability of chain is substantially enhanced because grease is sealed involving the pins and bushings by O-rings. The O-ring chain will be the most reliable model of the Ultimate Life Chain Series with its excellent dress in resistance even within the circumstances or environments the place chain maintenance is hard.
Advisable makes use of.
?Conditions where frequent chain substitute is needed resulting from wear stretch
?Conditions in which lubrication through the services is not possible
?In an natural environment with much soil, sand, dust, and so forth.
?Applications that need strength greater than that of a sintered bushing roller chain
Other functions
?Reducing noise. (The noise degree is 3 dB reduced compared to conventional roller chains.)
?Decreasing vibration using the friction produced by O-Ring. (The power reduction due to the friction is nearly negligible, because the frictional force among the pins and bushings is for generally while in the applications.)
Choice of chains
The strength of an O-ring chain is nearly precisely the same as that of a normal roller chain. (Since the pins are longer than people of normal roller chain, the common rupture strength is slightly decrease.)
For choosing a suitable chain, refer to “Selection of Chains” .
When the services ambient temperature is greater than 80° C, particular heat resistant O-rings should be utilised. In this instance, get hold of us for a lot more information and facts.
Connecting back links and offset back links
Two types of connecting links are available: clearance match and interference match. When high strength or durability is needed, use interference-fit connecting link. Only 2POJ is accessible since the offset link for all sizes.
O-ring chain uses longer pins than a conventional roller chain. When making use of multiplex O-ring chain, the common sprocket for multiplex chains can’t be utilised.
O-ring chain will not be advised in applications exactly where solvents or other substances could attack “Nitric Rubber”. Unique material O-rings can also be offered for these ailments: Please seek advice from us for facts. Generally, “Nitric Rubber” is damaged by get hold of using the following chemical resources.
