This is a chain selection strategy taking deterioration of power in relation to temperature into consideration. Please use proper lubricant to the temperature at which the chain is always to be applied. Check with us for details.
1. Effects of temperature within the chains Results of higher temperature
one) Increased dress in brought on by lower in hardness
two) Increased elongation triggered by softening
3) Lubricant degradation, defective flexion brought on by carbonization
4) Increase in wear and defective flexion brought on by development of scales
two. Kilowatt ratings according to temperature
one.two Results of low temperature
1) Decrease in resistance to shock brought on by low temperature brittleness.
two) Defective flexion brought about by lubrication oil coagulation.
three) Defective flexion triggered by adhesion of frost and ice.
4) Rusting caused by water-drops.
three. Chain Selection according to Temperature
(Chain speed=50m/min or much less)
four. Use of Stainless Steel Chains (SS, SSK) at high temperatures
Stainless steel chains (SS, SSK) may be used as much as 400??C, but be aware the ambient temperature plus the chain temperature might vary. The strength of your chain decreases as the temperature rises. Specially at high temperatures, the higher the temperature rises, the chain will rupture by a lower load (creep rupture).
Furthermore, defective flexion or defective chain revolution happens as a consequence of heat expansion. So as to avert this kind of challenges, adjust the clearance among chains. Check with us when employing chains at 400??C or larger.
Chains cannot be used at 700??C or larger.
