Product Information
Rotary chains were developed primarily for chain drive applications involving extremely heavy loads or particularly adverse operating conditions. Chains of the type are particularly resistant to violent shocks, wear and severe operating conditions, and also have as a result enjoyed increasing success in an array of applications in recent years.
For the most part, rotary chain dimensions are standardized under ISO 3512, ANSI B 29.10 and DIN 8182. One significant benefit of rotary chains is usually that their links are all constructed to the same design, making it simpler to lengthen or shorten the chains when required. They have another advantage over regular roller chains – all links are at the mercy of the same degree of wear.
ELITE rotary chains with cranked links are fitted with cotter pins. The chain plates can be found in naturally hardened steel or special tempered metal, according to the anticipated mechanical load. Chains put through incredibly high loads are fitted with induction-hardened pins, making them not only quite challenging, but also providing them with the highest possible level of heavy duty cranked link chains surface hardness.
