Press Release Summary:
Low Noise Drive Chain offers spring roller construction, which absorbs impact of sprocket-chain interaction, reducing equipment noise by up to 10 decibels. It is available in sizes 40 through 80, and can directly replace ANSI standard chain for compliance with environmental management standards such as ISO 14000. Chain exceeds ANSI minimum tensile strength requirements and operates with standard sprockets in temperatures from 14Â°F to 140Â°F.

U.S. Tsubaki Introduces Low Noise Drive Chain
High-performance Roller Chain Reduces Workplace Noise
Wheeling, IL, January, 2002 - New Low Noise Drive Chain from U.S. Tsubaki delivers the strength and reliability of ANSI standard chain while reducing noise levels by nearly 50 percent. This innovative chain helps industry meet new global standards for environmental management without the need for expensive system reconfigurations.
Low Noise Drive Chain from U.S. Tsubaki provides greater strength and longer wear life than belts and eliminates the need for costly, cumbersome soundproof enclosures. The unique spring roller construction absorbs the impact of the sprocket-chain
interaction, offering the same maximum allowable loads as standard roller chain while reducing equipment noise by up to 10 decibels. Because the decibel scale is logarithmic, this translates into an application noise reduction of nearly 50 percent!
Available in sizes 40 through 80, Low Noise Drive Chain can directly replace ANSI standard chain for seamless compliance with new environmental management standards such as ISO 14000. The chain actually exceeds ANSI minimum tensile strength requirements and operates with standard sprockets in temperatures from 14°F to 140°F.
U.S. Tsubaki is one of the country's only manufacturers of a complete line of drive chains, attachment chains, engineering class chains, sprockets, and power transmission components. The company is a subsidiary of Tsubakimoto Chain Co. of Japan, the
world's leading chain and power transmission component manufacturer.
