Gates carries limited lines of stainless steel Poly Chain GT2® sprockets and Taper Lock™ bushings. 8mm pitch Poly Chain GT2 sprockets are available in 12mm and 21mm widths with groove counts ranging from 28 to 60. Corresponding stainless steel Taper Lock bushings are available in sizes ranging from 1108 to 2012 in both English and metric bore sizes.
Specific types of stainless steel materials used in sprockets and bushings can vary depending on cost and availability. Typical stainless steel material types 301, 302, 303 and 304.
Stainless steel sprockets and bushings provide a corrosion resistant combination that performs very well in applications that are wet or sustain regular wash downs. Standard sprocket and bushing materials are not appropriate for use in these adverse environments.
And Poly Chain GT Carbon belts are highly resistant to moisture and most wash down chemicals. Conventional rubber synchronous belts can absorb moisture and swell, as well as lose significant tensile strength in continuously wet environments.
