Connecting Links Are Used For Permanently "Seating" Various Chain Components.
Connecting Links are prestressed to minimize chain stretch during iinitial running period, providing long lasting durability and reduced need for take-up adjustment. It also minimizes tolerance variations by ensuring balanced loading among all parts and avoiding premature fatigue failure. Shot peening increases resistance to fatigue. case hardening of pins and bushings means longer life for Browning chain. Pins are centerless ground to finish diameter. Single or double stands. Available types are Spring Clip and Cotter Pin for Standard Roller Chain and Heavy Roller Chain.
