Roller Chain'S Wear Treatment Process

  •  

    The wear of the Roller Chain is one of the main reasons for chain damage. The chain will stretch elastically when the chain is running, and it will return to its original length when there is no load. The wear between the links will increase the chain pitch of the chain, and the outer dimensions of the links will remain the same.

    Under normal circumstances, a 2.5% increase in chain pitch is acceptable. If it exceeds 2.5%, it is necessary to evaluate whether to replace the chain. If the working face is nearly finished, the wear of the chain should not cause problems. If the working face is longer, a new chain needs to be assembled to reduce the risk of chain failure. When overloaded, the chain stretches plastically.
    When the load is removed, the chain link remains stretched. These links will increase the chain pitch by about a few millimeters, and the outer dimensions of the links will also increase in length. If the increased chain pitch occurs on one of the chains, it will result in chain mismatch.
