Chain offers outstanding corrosion resistance
22 May 2014
Tsubaki's NEP (New Environmental Plating) chain retains the same strength as carbon steel chain, but, in addition, has undergone a special surface treatment process.
The link plates, bushes and bearing pins of the chain have a special three-stage coating applied in order to provide the maximum protection from operating or environmental conditions. In addition, the chain rollers have a special coating designed to resist corrosion and the severe dynamic contact between roller and sprocket.
NEP chain is suitable for use in environments exposed to seawater, acid rain and other adverse operating conditions. The product is also RoHS compliant.
Kilowatt ratings for NEP chain are the same as those for corresponding sizes of Tsubaki standard BS chain, but with a higher working temperature range: -10°C to +150°C. For operations above 60°C a special high temperature lubricant is required, which is available from Tsubaki Europe.
