Challenging automation and motion applications need tough chain — such as Super Stainless roller chain.
In the past, design engineers had to choose between the corrosion resistance of stainless steel and the strength of carbon steel. Now U.S. Tsubaki offers a single chain that offers both corrosion resistance and strength.
With its Super Stainless chain, Tsubaki has engineered a stainless-steel chain setup that combines the strength of ANSI carbon-steel chain with the corrosion resistance of 600 (AS) series chains. It can be paired with Super Stainless attachments and sprockets to create a reliable stainless-steel system that withstands extreme operating conditions while providing superior wear life. No longer will a complete system redesign be needed to accommodate multi-strand or larger-pitch chains.
Designed to deliver top strength in high-temperature, corrosive, and food-grade environments, Super Stainless chain can also replace carbon steel chain one for one. This helps reduce cost while operating with the same loads as standard carbon-steel chain.
Super Stainless chain also exhibits high side-bar waist and greater fatigue strength than alternatives — and hardened bushings and pins. That makes for roller chain 100% compliant with ASME B29.1.
Stainless-steel power-transmission components excel
Specialty stainless-steel products from U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission outlast traditional variations — ultimately making stainless components a cost-effective choice over the long term. Only stainless can withstand the extreme temperatures, harsh chemicals, and moisture of food-safe and cleanroom environments.
More specifically, Super Stainless chain from U.S. Tsubaki complements the benefits of stainless steel by integrating hardened components and engineered side plates into the chain to boost strength and extend wear life. The chain excels in freezers, underwater applications, high-temperature ovens, food packaging and processing, high-speed conveyors, and where there’s exposure to harsh cleaners.
Tsubaki has served the motion industry since 1917. For more information on Super Stainless roller chain, download a PDF on U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission, Super Stainless at this link on the ustsubaki.com website.
