Features of Nitro® 81X Roller Chain:
- Quality Raw Materials: Nitro Chains are manufactured using high-quality raw materials, ensuring overall strength and robustness. This choice of materials forms the foundation of the chain's reliability and longevity.
- Shot Peened & Heat Treated: To further enhance its strength and durability, the 81X chain undergoes shot peening and heat treatment processes. Shot peening helps in increasing the chain's resistance to fatigue and stress, while heat treatment improves its hardness, toughness, and overall longevity.
- Solid Rollers: The use of solid rollers in the chain design prevents roller distortion. This feature is crucial because roller distortion can lead to uneven wear and stretch over time, affecting the chain's performance and lifespan.
- Solid Bushings: Like solid rollers, solid bushings also play a vital role in preventing distortion. They contribute to the chain's longevity by maintaining the integrity of the chain components.
- Quad Staked Pins: The use of quad staked pins ensures solid construction, enhancing the overall strength and stability of the chain.
