  • Lambda® RS Attachment Chain

Surface Treated Lambda® RS Attachment Chain

A Lambda RS Attachment Chain that has been surface treated to provide greater corrosion resistance.

We offer NP and NEP Series to meet your corrosion resistance needs.

We reviewed the material and processing that go into our special oil-impregnated bushes, and improved the lubricant.

Surface Treated Lambda RS Attachment Chain

1. Series

NP Series
Plates and rollers are nickel plated for light corrosion resistance.
NEP Series
Features a special triple surface coating on the plates and a special coating on the rollers for increased corrosion resistance.
*NEP Series chain is made to order. Contact a Tsubaki representative for details.
Improved the lubricant used in the special oil impregnated bushes.
Used the compliant lubrication to NSF H1 as special contained bush. It also can be used on food machinery. *

Safety Precautions for Lambda Chain

  • Do not use Lambda Chain if the chain will come in direct contact with food or where coating flakes or wear dust can contaminate food. Also, in non-food applications, appropriately cover the chain or contact a Tsubaki representative about chain selection if using in environments where coating flakes or wear dust present problems. Though nickel is not subject to the japan Food Sanitation Law or the Industry Safety and Health Law, plating on sliding parts can peel.
  • Do not use Lambda Chain where there is the possibility of exposure to chemicals, water, or cleaning/degreasing vapors.
  • Oil might spatter depending on the usage conditions.
  • Please be aware that NSF H1 non-compliant rust prevention oil and assembly oil may be present on the chain.
