With an open barrel design, Drives® Pintle chain self-cleans, handles adverse conditions and offers improved wear life. Some of its key features:
- Precision punched holes increase load-bearing surface area and maximize working loads.
- Optimum press-fits introduce residual compressive stresses, oppose tensile stresses from loading and provide greater pin retention.
- Through-hardened, quad-staked pins promote additional press-fit and allowable working strength while resisting pin pullout due to side loading.
- Low backing distance to the barrel enhances the contact area between the pin and the barrel.
