Corrosion Resistant Chain Technical Paper
Conveyor Chain and Sprocket Technical Paper 2022-01
When making chain selections for corrosive environments several factors should be considered. The first factor is to determine if the application is a power transmission application or conveying application. Coated or plated carbon steel chains (zinc or nickel coatings) and stainless-steel chains are used in corrosive environments. This technical paper presents the standard options available.
