Chain Grinding To achieve an ultra-smooth surface Ramsey can grind the top, bottom, or both sides of a chain to the customer’s desired dimensions. To order, simply specify the chain type and assembly number and include your grinding requirements. It is important to specify the amount of material to be ground off each surface and the desired finished dimensions of the chain. Ramsey customer service can provide assistance with grinding specifications.
Note: The minimum amount of grinding required to “clean up” a surface is 0.10mm to 0.015mm. The standard tolerance on grinding is 0.025mm.
Stainless Steel Many of our conveying chains are available in stainless steel. Typically, links are made from 316 stainless steel and pins are made from a wear resistant, hardenable grade of stainless. With compatible stainless steel sprockets these chains can operate at temperatures up to 650 C. Common applications include food processing, parts washing, chemical processing, and pharmaceutical production. Upon request, some chains can be constructed entirely of 316 stainless steel.
