What are the common chains and what occasions are they suitable for?

2019-09-12 15:55:39

The following is the compilation of relevant information about the chain:


Stainless steel chain: The material of the parts is stainless steel, which is suitable for use in food industry, chemical and pharmaceutical erosion situations, as well as in high and low temperature situations.


Nickel-plated, galvanized and chromium-plated chains: All chains made of carbon steel can be surface treated. The surface of parts can be treated by nickel, zinc or chromium plating, which is suitable for outdoor rain erosion and other occasions, but can not prevent the corrosion of concentrated chemical liquids.


Self-lubricating chains: The parts are made of a sintered metal soaked with lubricating oil. The chains have excellent wear resistance, corrosion resistance, no maintenance (maintenance-free), and long service life. It is widely used in occasions with high stress, wear-resistant requirements and can not be maintained frequently, such as automatic production line of food industry, high-grade bicycle racing car, less maintenance of high-precision transmission machinery.


O-ring chain: The inner and outer chain plates of the roller chain are equipped with O-ring for sealing, so as to prevent dust from entering and grease from flowing out of the hinge. Chains are strictly pre-lubricated. Because the chain has super strong parts and reliable lubrication, it can be used in motorcycle open drive.


Rubber chain: This kind of chain is based on A, B series of chains on the outside of the chain with U-shaped appendages, adhered to the appendage board rubber (such as natural rubber NR, silicone rubber SI, etc.) can increase wear resistance, reduce noise, increase shock resistance. Used for conveying.


Spike chain: widely used in wood industry, such as wood feeding and output, cutting, conveyor conveyor, etc.


Agricultural machinery chain: suitable for field operation machinery such as walking tractor, thresher, combine harvester, etc. This kind of chain requires low cost but can withstand impact and wear resistance. In addition, the chain should be greased or lubricated automatically.


High Strength Chain: It is a kind of special roller chain. By improving the shape of chain plate, thickening the hole of chain plate, fine punching chain plate and heat treatment strengthening of pin shaft, the tensile strength can be increased by 15-30%, and it has good impact and fatigue properties.



Side Bending Chain: This kind of chain has larger hinge clearance and chain plate clearance, so it has greater flexibility and can be used for bending transmission and conveying.


Escalator chain: used for escalators and automatic pedestrian passages. The escalator works long hours, requires high safety and runs smoothly. Therefore, it is required that the cascade chain must reach the specified minimum tensile load, the total length deviation and the step distance deviation of the two paired chains.


Motorcycle Chain: Defined by the use of chain, from the structure of chain, there are two types of roller chain and sleeve chain, from the part used on motorcycle, it has two kinds of internal and external use of engine, the chain used in engine is mostly sleeve chain structure, the chain used outside engine is used for. Roller chains are mostly used to drive rear wheels.


Agricultural clamping conveyor chain: It is suitable for walking wheat, rice harvester, fixed motor rice and wheat thresher, and semi-feeding combine harvester.


Hollow Pin Shaft Chain: For conveying, single pitch, double pitch and long pitch can be used. Attachments or crossbars can be inserted into any link of the chain without dismantling the chain.


Time gauge chain: used for transmission between engine crankshaft and camshaft. Because the engine piston stroke and exhaust time are strictly regulated, the chain for this purpose is called time gauge chain. Roller chain and tooth chain can be used as time gauge chain. The timing chain is mainly used for the transmission of engines (diesel engines or gasoline engines) of automobiles, motorcycles and ships. In order to reduce the weight of the engine, the installation gap between the chain and the engine is very small, and some even have no tensioning device. Therefore, besides the requirement of high precision, the requirement of wear resistance of the timing chain is quite high.


Limitations of the chain: As a common transmission force device, the chain reduces friction through the hyperbolic arc "chain" design. It is used in places where the power is relatively large and the running speed is relatively slow. It has obvious advantages over belt transmission, such as tanks, pneumatic compressors, etc., but the transmission speed can not be too fast. Because the flexibility of the chain is not as good as that of the belt conveyor.
