Advantages and disadvantages of stainless steel chain drive
Advantages of stainless steel chain drive: 1. Compared with belt drive, there is no elastic sliding, can maintain accurate average transmission ratio, high transmission efficiency, the chain does not need tension, so the load on the shaft and bearing is small, Will not skid, reliable transmission, strong overload capacity, can work better at low speed and heavy load. 2. Compared with Gear transmission, it can have a larger center distance, can work in high temperature environment and dusty environment, and the cost is lower. Disadvantages of stainless steel chain transmission: 1. The instantaneous chain speed and instantaneous transmission ratio are both changed, and the transmission stability is poor. 2. There are impacts and noises during work, not suitable for high-speed occasions, and not suitable for frequent changes in the direction of rotation.
A chain is a common transmission device. The working principle of a chain is to reduce the friction between the chain and the sprocket through a hyperbolic arc chain, reduce the energy loss during power transmission, and obtain higher transmission efficiency. The application of chain drive is mainly concentrated on some situations with higher power but slower running speed, so that the chain drive can obtain more obvious advantages.
Chain transmission uses a wide variety of products and complete products, including toothed chains for transmission, continuously variable Transmission Chains, long pitch Conveyor Chains, short pitch roller chains, double pitch roller conveyor chains, double speed conveyor chains, transmission Sleeve chains, curved plate roller chains for heavy-duty transmission, double-pitch roller chains for transmission, short-pitch roller conveyor chains, plate chains, etc.
1.Stainless steel chain
Stainless steel chains, as the name suggests, are stainless steel chains that are used as the main casting material. This chain has good corrosion resistance and can adapt to higher or lower temperature working environments. The main application fields of stainless steel chains are food manufacturing and processing industry, chemical industry and pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.
The necessary manufacturing material of a self-lubricating chain is a special sintered metal impregnated with lubricating oil. The chain made from this metal has wear resistance and corrosion resistance, and can complete self-lubrication without maintenance. The working life is also longer. Self-lubricating chains are mostly suitable for occasions that require high wear resistance and are not easy to maintain, such as food automation production lines.
3, rubber chain
The manufacturing method of the rubber chain is formed by adding a U-shaped attachment plate to the outer chain link of the ordinary chain, and pasting various rubbers outside the attachment plate. The rubber used in rubber chains is mostly natural rubber NR or silicone rubber SI, etc. In this way, the chain can obtain better abrasion resistance, and can reduce noise and increase vibration resistance during operation.
High-strength chain is a special roller chain, which is made by modifying the shape of the chain plate on the basis of the original chain, and special processing the chain plate, the hole and the pin of the chain. High-strength chains have good tensile strength, which is 15% to 30% higher than that of ordinary chains, and has good impact resistance and fatigue resistance.
