KCM Roller Chain Self Lubricating

The KCM lubrication-free chain uses special oil-impregnated bushing for self-lubrication, achieving maintenance-free.
Use this chain when no lubrication is required or difficult lubrication in the process is expected.

  • The chain is made of thick sintered bushings that impregnate plenty of oil
  • Recommended chain speed is 150m/min or slower
  • Ordinary operating temperature range of -10°C to +150°
  • Available in different chain numbers: 40SL, 50SL, 60SL

Operating Notes to Self Lubricating Chains

  • In a dusty environment, there is a possibility that premature wear can occur.
  • If the chain is exposed to water, oil impregnated in bushing will come out, thus promoting wear.
  • If oil comes out completely from bushing, rapid wear is caused, shortening service life.
