Original Press Release:

Low Maintenance Chain Can Provide Up To 10 Times the Wear Life of Standard Roller Chain

Indianapolis, June 6, 2003 -Diamond Chain Company introduces Dust Stopper(tm) Chain, a pre-lubricated roller chain that seals out dust and debris. This new specialty chain combines the advantages of two proven Diamond Chain products - Ring Leader® O-Ring and Duralube® Self-lubricating chains.

Dust Stopper is ideal in dusty and dirty applications or environments where regular lubrication is not possible or practical. The chain employs a one-piece powdered metal bushing/roller impregnated with oil and is specifically designed for applications where re-lubrication is difficult, expensive or impossible. Because the lubricant is sealed into the joints of the chain, the need for additional lubrication and maintenance is decreased, and life-cycle costs are lowered.

Debris such as dirt, mud, food particles, paper fines, and dust can clog a roller chain, getting into the joints and accelerating the wear on the surface of the pins and bushings. The Diamond Chain technology behind Dust Stopper helps to seal out debris, protecting the chain from contamination all while sealing in specially formulated lubricant into every joint to minimize the wear on the internal surfaces of the pins and brushings.

Dust Stopper chain will be most useful in agriculture, food processing, packaging, printing, textile, and fiberglass industries. With a wear-life of up to 10 times longer than standard chain, Dust Stopper offers customers a low total cost of ownership chain alternative, reducing downtime and maintenance.

The chain is available in sizes 40, 50, 60 and 80XDLO. The product specifications include speeds from 650 to 1,300 feet/minute at pitches ranging from ½ to 1 inch. For more information call 800-872-4246 or log onto
