When is it time to replace a stainless steel roller chain on an application?
Update Time:2018-07-13

Eventually as the stainless steel chain’s pin and bushing continue to wear, the chain’s fatigue life will be reduced. Generally when a roller chain is stretched 3% it is time to replace the chain. Careful inspection of the chain periodically is required to check for cracked parts or sprocket teeth for improved function of the chain on the application. Chains are to be free of debris and dust to run to their useful life.
