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

Highest wear resistance obtainable by sealing grease amongst pins and bushings
The sturdiness of chain is drastically enhanced because grease is sealed between the pins and bushings by O-rings. The O-ring chain could be the most dependable model in the Greatest Lifestyle Chain Series with its outstanding dress in resistance even from the situations or environments the place chain maintenance is difficult.
Advisable employs.
?Circumstances in which regular chain substitute is required as a result of dress in stretch
?Situations in which lubrication throughout the support is not possible
?In an natural environment with considerably soil, sand, dust, and so forth.
?Applications that call for power higher than that of a sintered bushing roller chain
Other capabilities
?Cutting down noise. (The noise degree is 3 dB reduce compared to conventional roller chains.)
?Reducing vibration with all the friction designed by O-Ring. (The power loss due to the friction is nearly negligible, because the frictional force amongst the pins and bushings is for normally while in the applications.)
Choice of chains
The power of an O-ring chain is nearly the exact same as that of a normal roller chain. (Because the pins are longer than individuals of common roller chain, the typical rupture power is somewhat lower.)
For selecting an appropriate chain, refer to “Selection of Chains” .
When the support ambient temperature is larger than 80° C, specific heat resistant O-rings need to be made use of. In this instance, speak to us for a lot more details.
Connecting back links and offset links
Two kinds of connecting back links are available: clearance match and interference fit. When large power or sturdiness is needed, use interference-fit connecting hyperlink. Only 2POJ is obtainable since the offset link for all sizes.
Sprockets
O-ring chain employs longer pins than a standard roller chain. When utilizing multiplex O-ring chain, the regular sprocket for multiplex chains cannot be applied.
Caution
O-ring chain will not be recommended in applications where solvents or other substances could assault “Nitric Rubber”. Particular material O-rings are also out there for these conditions: Please seek advice from us for specifics. Generally, “Nitric Rubber” is broken by get hold of together with the following chemical products.
