Tsubaki "V" class roller chain for oil well machinery

"V" Class ChainTsubaki "V" Class roller chains are designed and manufactured for oil well rig drives where high speeds and heavy shock loads are expected. These chains are manufactured according to ANSI specifications.


  •  Superior impact resistance 

heat treatment

The pin surface is carburized and hardened with Tsubaki heat-treating techniques for superior impact resistance. This results in greater breaking strength and increased chain impact strength as compared to ANSI standard chains.

  •  Greater fatigue resistance 

ball driftingPin holes in link plates are ball drifted after heat-treatment for greater fatigue strength. A 30% increase in chain life compared with ANSI standard chains is the net result of this procedure.

  •  High speed durability 

shot peeningRollers, precisely manufactured, are shot-peened after heat-treatment to give them superior fatigue life and high speed durability.
