New SKF High Quality Roller Chains-Now Available in U.S.

SKF SKF now offers high-quality roller chain for power transmission and conveyor systems in warehouses and manufacturing facilities.  IBT has been selected as a preferred supplier of the new SKF chain offering in the U.S.

“For years, IBT’s customers have trusted SKF for their bearings and seals,” said Tim Zerger, Bearings and Power Transmission Business Group Director at IBT.  “Now, the SKF chain line gives our customers another quality SKF product—at a very affordable price.”

Types of Chains Available

IBT offers every size of the standard riveted SKF roller chain, from #40-#160. SKF chain is in stock at IBT’s Central Distribution Center in Kansas City, as well as at most local IBT Customer Service Centers.

The carbon chain is pre-lubricated, and performs well in temps of -4°F to 300°F. The stainless steel chain is corrosion-resistant for food applications, and can handle temps of up to 750°F. Nickel or zinc coatings can add protection to carbon steel variants, and a wide variety of attachment chains are available.  All come with a connecting link.

High-Performance Chain

All SKF roller chains are pre-stressed and designed for long life and heavy shock loads. They comply with ANSI and ISO standards, and can be used for power transmission and conveyor systems in:

  • Food and beverage manufacturing
  • Mining
  • Cement
  • Steel industry
  • Warehouses
  • Sewage treatment plants

“These chains are a very economical way to transmit power from a gear box to a conveyor belt,” said Zerger.  “There’s no slippage, so you get a very efficient power transfer.”
