O Ring Sealed

Recommended Posts

What  is the difference between O ring sealed chain and normal chain. We see o ring chain in Discover135,P200& P220.

Why can't we keep normal chain exposed .Do companies expose chain to give upmarket feeling or to reduce cost (Chain Cover).Whats the gurantee that O ring sealed chain cannot be stolen.smiley5.gif

The o-ring Chain is named for the O - shaped rubber rings built into the metal rollers of every link in this particular type of metal chain.

 

Chain manufacturers began to include this feature in the 1980s as a way to improve lubrication to the links of power transmission chains, a service that is vitally important to extending the working life of chain.

 

The o-rings fit into the gap between the rollers and the links that surround each roller and hold the entire chain together. These rubber fixtures form a barrier that holds factory applied lubricating grease inside of the rollers while still applying sufficient lubrication to the chain body.

 

Further, the rubber o-rings prevent dirt and other contaminants from entering the inside of the chain linkages, where such particles would otherwise cause significant wear.

Since Lubrication of O- Ring Chain is taken care of sealed rubber rings, these chains can perform without the need of a Chain Cover. To put it the other way, Ordinary chains need protection from dirt in the form of a chain cover.

 

 

I have personally never heard of any theft of any motorcycle chain..smiley36.gif
