Diamond® XLO O-Ring chain is constructed with o-rings that seal a specially formulated lubricant into every joint – sealing out dirt, contaminants and moisture. This chain is optimal for applications that introduce contaminants which can damage standard chain. Dirt, mud, dust, paper fines, food particles and moisture can cause buildup and damage the surface of pins and bushings.
Reduced maintenance roller chains are intended for applications where regular lubrication is not possible or practical. The life of these chains is significantly greater than a traditional chain that only has its initial lubrication. In all cases, life of reduced maintenance chain can be extended even further if regular lubrication is possible.
