Drives® 81X chain is manufactured with premium quality alloy steels, heat-treated and tempered for extended service life. Solid rollers, bushings and case-hardened pins work together with linkplates to create a high-quality, long-lasting product.
- Solid Rollers: Solid rollers allow for smoother engagement with sprockets and rotate freely to reduce pulsation in conveyors.
- Case-Hardened Pins: This chain comes with case-hardened pins unless upgraded. We offer a CHP (chrome-hardened pin) upgrade that decreases wear between the pin and bushing, reducing elongation and increasing wear life.
Looking for a Heavy Series 81X chain for your application? We offer 81XH and 81XHH, complete with heavier sidebars and through-hardened pins. Our Kiln Dryer Series chains (81XKD, 81XHKD, and 3000KD) are also available for specific use on dryer or wallboard systems.
