1.A connecting link of an O-ring Chain for common application is pre-coated with grease on the pins. In advance of connection, confirm the grease on the surfaces of pins, and when the level of grease is modest, apply grease with bare hands. (If gloves are utilized, the grease will probably be absorbed through the gloves.)
Example: When the connecting hyperlink (I) of an O-ring chain for common application is
shipped, O-rings are fitted with the roots of the pins. If the O-rings come loose due to vibration during transport, refit the O-rings in on the roots with the pins.
In this instance, make sure you return the grease collected on the roots with the pins to the central surfaces of the pins, more at portion A than at portions B proven inside the over illustration. (Portions A is worn on account of sliding using the bushings.)
two.The chain is usually most very easily linked on the teeth of a sprocket. Engage the links at the two ends of the chain with all the sprocket teeth and match connecting pins. When the sprocket could be moved, the chain may also be connected within the loosened side.
3. Connecting process
one.Confirm that O-rings are connected to the roots of the pins.
2.If the quantity of grease applied within the connecting pins is tiny, coat the pins with grease in the central portions.
three.Insert the connecting pins to the bushings from the inner hyperlinks at each ends.
four.Confirm the grease is utilized for the entire face with the O-ring, and match the O-ring onto the connecting pins.
five.Insert the connecting pins into the connecting plate and while pressing the connecting plate, install the spring clip. Confirm whether or not the head (the finish without a split) from the spring clip is turned while in the feeding direction of the chain. (See the following illustration.)
6.Make sure to confirm the spring clip is securely fitted in the clip grooves on the connecting pins.
This completes jointing on the connecting link. Note that grease on the surfaces of connecting pins and O-rings could be removed during installation operate. In this case, re-grease utilizing the grease over the surface of your base chain or the grease while in the polyethylene bag through which the connecting hyperlink was contained.
