Roller chain
Roller chain or bush roller chain is the type of chain drive most commonly used for transmission of mechanical power on many kinds of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, including conveyors, wire- and tube-drawing machines, printing presses, cars, motorcycles, and bicycles. It consists of a series of short cylindrical rollers held together by side links. It is driven by a toothed wheel called a sprocket. It is a simple, reliable, and efficient[1] means of power transmission.

Though CHINAMFG Renold is credited with inventing the roller chain in 1880, sketches by Leonardo da Vinci in the 16th century show a chain with a roller bearing.

Construction of the chain
Two different sizes of roller chain, showing construction.
There are 2 types of links alternating in the bush roller chain. The first type is inner links, having 2 inner plates held together by 2 sleeves or bushings CHINAMFG which rotate 2 rollers. Inner links alternate with the second type, the outer links, consisting of 2 outer plates held together by pins passing through the bushings of the inner links. The “bushingless” roller chain is similar in operation though not in construction; instead of separate bushings or sleeves holding the inner plates together, the plate has a tube stamped into it protruding from the hole which serves the same purpose. This has the advantage of removing 1 step in assembly of the chain.

The roller chain design reduces friction compared to simpler designs, resulting in higher efficiency and less wear. The original power transmission chain varieties lacked rollers and bushings, with both the inner and outer plates held by pins which directly contacted the sprocket teeth; however this configuration exhibited extremely rapid wear of both the sprocket teeth, and the plates where they pivoted on the pins. This problem was partially solved by the development of bushed chains, with the pins holding the outer plates passing through bushings or sleeves connecting the inner plates. This distributed the wear over a greater area; however the teeth of the sprockets still wore more rapidly than is desirable, from the sliding friction against the bushings. The addition of rollers surrounding the bushing sleeves of the chain and provided rolling contact with the teeth of the sprockets resulting in excellent resistance to wear of both sprockets and chain as well. There is even very low friction, as long as the chain is sufficiently lubricated. Continuous, clean, lubrication of roller chains is of primary importance for efficient operation as well as correct tensioning.

Lubrication
Many driving chains (for example, in factory equipment, or driving a camshaft inside an internal combustion engine) operate in clean environments, and thus the wearing surfaces (that is, the pins and bushings) are safe from precipitation and airborne grit, many even in a sealed environment such as an oil bath. Some roller chains are designed to have o-rings built into the space between the outside link plate and the inside roller link plates. Chain manufacturers began to include this feature in 1971 after the application was invented by Joseph Montano while working for Whitney Chain of Hartford, Connecticut. O-rings were included as a way to improve lubrication to the links of power transmission chains, a service that is vitally important to extending their working life. These rubber fixtures form a barrier that holds factory applied lubricating grease inside the pin and bushing wear areas. Further, the rubber o-rings prevent dirt and other contaminants from entering inside the chain linkages, where such particles would otherwise cause significant wear.[citation needed]

There are also many chains that have to operate in dirty conditions, and for size or operational reasons cannot be sealed. Examples include chains on farm equipment, bicycles, and chain saws. These chains will necessarily have relatively high rates of wear, particularly when the operators are prepared to accept more friction, less efficiency, more noise and more frequent replacement as they neglect lubrication and adjustment.

Many oil-based lubricants attract dirt and other particles, eventually forming an CHINAMFG paste that will compound wear on chains. This problem can be circumvented by use of a “dry” PTFE spray, which forms a solid film after application and repels both particles and moisture.

Variants in design

Layout of a roller chain: 1. Outer plate, 2. Inner plate, 3. Pin, 4. Bushing, 5. Roller
If the chain is not being used for a high wear application (for instance if it is just transmitting motion from a hand-operated lever to a control shaft on a machine, or a sliding door on an oven), then 1 of the simpler types of chain may still be used. Conversely, where extra strength but the smooth drive of a smaller pitch is required, the chain may be “siamesed”; instead of just 2 rows of plates on the outer sides of the chain, there may be 3 (“duplex”), 4 (“triplex”), or more rows of plates running parallel, with bushings and rollers between each adjacent pair, and the same number of rows of teeth running in parallel on the sprockets to match. Timing chains on automotive engines, for example, typically have multiple rows of plates called strands.

Roller chain is made in several sizes, the most common American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards being 40, 50, 60, and 80. The first digit(s) indicate the pitch of the chain in eighths of an inch, with the last digit being 0 for standard chain, 1 for lightweight chain, and 5 for bushed chain with no rollers. Thus, a chain with half-inch pitch would be a #40 while a #160 sprocket would have teeth spaced 2 inches apart, etc. Metric pitches are expressed in sixteenths of an inch; thus a metric #8 chain (08B-1) would be equivalent to an ANSI #40. Most roller chain is made from plain carbon or alloy steel, but stainless steel is used in food processing machinery or other places where lubrication is a problem, and nylon or brass are occasionally seen for the same reason.

Roller chain is ordinarily hooked up using a master link (also known as a connecting link), which typically has 1 pin held by a horseshoe clip rather than friction fit, allowing it to be inserted or removed with simple tools. Chain with a removable link or pin is also known as cottered chain, which allows the length of the chain to be adjusted. Half links (also known as offsets) are available and are used to increase the length of the chain by a single roller. Riveted roller chain has the master link (also known as a connecting link) “riveted” or mashed on the ends. These pins are made to be durable and are not removable.

Use

Roller chains are used in low- to mid-speed drives at around 600 to 800 feet per minute; however, at higher speeds, around 2,000 to 3,000 feet per minute, V-belts are normally used due to wear and noise issues.
A bicycle chain is a form of roller chain. Bicycle chains may have a master link, or may require a chain tool for removal and installation. A similar but larger and thus stronger chain is used on most motorcycles although it is sometimes replaced by either a toothed belt or a shaft drive, which offer lower noise level and fewer maintenance requirements.
The great majority of automobile engines use roller chains to drive the camshaft(s). Very high performance engines often use gear drive, and starting in the early 1960s toothed belts were used by some manufacturers.
Chains are also used in forklifts using hydraulic rams as a pulley to raise and lower the carriage; however, these chains are not considered roller chains, but are classified as lift or leaf chains.
Chainsaw cutting chains superficially resemble roller chains but are more closely related to leaf chains. They are driven by projecting drive links which also serve to locate the chain CHINAMFG the bar.

A perhaps unusual use of a pair of motorcycle chains is in the Harrier Jump Jet, where a chain drive from an air motor is used to rotate the movable engine nozzles, allowing them to be pointed downwards for hovering flight, or to the rear for normal CHINAMFG flight, a system known as Thrust vectoring.
 

Wear

The effect of wear on a roller chain is to increase the pitch (spacing of the links), causing the chain to grow longer. Note that this is due to wear at the pivoting pins and bushes, not from actual stretching of the metal (as does happen to some flexible steel components such as the hand-brake cable of a motor vehicle).

With modern chains it is unusual for a chain (other than that of a bicycle) to wear until it breaks, since a worn chain leads to the rapid onset of wear on the teeth of the sprockets, with ultimate failure being the loss of all the teeth on the sprocket. The sprockets (in particular the smaller of the two) suffer a grinding motion that puts a characteristic hook shape into the driven face of the teeth. (This effect is made worse by a chain improperly tensioned, but is unavoidable no matter what care is taken). The worn teeth (and chain) no longer provides smooth transmission of power and this may become evident from the noise, the vibration or (in car engines using a timing chain) the variation in ignition timing seen with a timing light. Both sprockets and chain should be replaced in these cases, since a new chain on worn sprockets will not last long. However, in less severe cases it may be possible to save the larger of the 2 sprockets, since it is always the smaller 1 that suffers the most wear. Only in very light-weight applications such as a bicycle, or in extreme cases of improper tension, will the chain normally jump off the sprockets.

The lengthening due to wear of a chain is calculated by the following formula:

{\displaystyle \%=((M-(S*P))/(S*P))*100}

 

M = the length of a number of links measured

S = the number of links measured

P = Pitch

In industry, it is usual to monitor the movement of the chain tensioner (whether manual or automatic) or the exact length of a drive chain (one rule of thumb is to replace a roller chain which has elongated 3% on an adjustable drive or 1.5% on a fixed-center drive). A simpler method, particularly suitable for the cycle or motorcycle user, is to attempt to pull the chain away from the larger of the 2 sprockets, whilst ensuring the chain is taut. Any significant movement (e.g. making it possible to see through a gap) probably indicates a chain worn up to and beyond the limit. Sprocket damage will result if the problem is ignored. Sprocket wear cancels this effect, and may mask chain wear.

Chain strength

The most common measure of roller chain’s strength is tensile strength. Tensile strength represents how much load a chain can withstand under a one-time load before breaking. Just as important as tensile strength is a chain’s fatigue strength. The critical factors in a chain’s fatigue strength is the quality of steel used to manufacture the chain, the heat treatment of the chain components, the quality of the pitch hole fabrication of the linkplates, and the type of shot plus the intensity of shot peen coverage on the linkplates. Other factors can include the thickness of the linkplates and the design (contour) of the linkplates. The rule of thumb for roller chain operating on a continuous drive is for the chain load to not exceed a mere 1/6 or 1/9 of the chain’s tensile strength, depending on the type of master links used (press-fit vs. slip-fit)[citation needed]. Roller chains operating on a continuous drive beyond these thresholds can and typically do fail prematurely via linkplate fatigue failure.

The standard minimum ultimate strength of the ANSI 29.1 steel chain is 12,500 x (pitch, in inches)2. X-ring and O-Ring chains greatly decrease wear by means of internal lubricants, increasing chain life. The internal lubrication is inserted by means of a vacuum when riveting the chain together.

Chain standards

Standards organizations (such as ANSI and ISO) maintain standards for design, dimensions, and interchangeability of transmission chains. For example, the following Table shows data from ANSI standard B29.1-2011 (Precision Power Transmission Roller Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets) developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). See the references[8][9][10] for additional information.

ASME/ANSI B29.1-2011 Roller Chain Standard SizesSizePitchMaximum Roller DiameterMinimum Ultimate Tensile StrengthMeasuring Load25.

For mnemonic purposes, below is another presentation of key dimensions from the same standard, expressed in fractions of an inch (which was part of the thinking behind the choice of preferred numbers in the ANSI standard):

Notes:
1. The pitch is the distance between roller centers. The width is the distance between the link plates (i.e. slightly more than the roller width to allow for clearance).
2. The right-hand digit of the standard denotes 0 = normal chain, 1 = lightweight chain, 5 = rollerless bushing chain.
3. The left-hand digit denotes the number of eighths of an inch that make up the pitch.
4. An “H” following the standard number denotes heavyweight chain. A hyphenated number following the standard number denotes double-strand (2), triple-strand (3), and so on. Thus 60H-3 denotes number 60 heavyweight triple-strand chain.
 A typical bicycle chain (for derailleur gears) uses narrow 1⁄2-inch-pitch chain. The width of the chain is variable, and does not affect the load capacity. The more sprockets at the rear wheel (historically 3-6, nowadays 7-12 sprockets), the narrower the chain. Chains are sold according to the number of speeds they are designed to work with, for example, “10 speed chain”. Hub gear or single speed bicycles use 1/2″ x 1/8″ chains, where 1/8″ refers to the maximum thickness of a sprocket that can be used with the chain.

Typically chains with parallel shaped links have an even number of links, with each narrow link followed by a broad one. Chains built up with a uniform type of link, narrow at 1 and broad at the other end, can be made with an odd number of links, which can be an advantage to adapt to a special chainwheel-distance; on the other side such a chain tends to be not so strong.

Roller chains made using ISO standard are sometimes called as isochains.

How do engineering chains handle misalignment between sprockets?

Engineering chains are designed to handle some degree of misalignment between sprockets. Misalignment can occur due to various factors such as improper installation, wear and elongation of the chain, or inaccuracies in the machinery. While some misalignment is inevitable in many industrial applications, excessive misalignment should be avoided to ensure optimal chain performance and longevity.

Here’s how engineering chains handle misalignment:

  1. Flexible Construction: Engineering chains are constructed with flexible components such as pins, rollers, and bushings. This design allows the chain to adapt to minor misalignments without putting excessive stress on the chain or sprockets.
  2. Articulating Joints: The articulating joints in the chain allow it to articulate smoothly around the sprockets, accommodating minor misalignment during the rotation. This helps reduce wear on the chain and sprockets.
  3. Tolerance for Misalignment: Manufacturers provide specifications for the allowable misalignment between sprockets. Engineering chains are designed to handle a certain level of misalignment within these tolerances without significantly affecting their performance.
  4. Proper Installation: Correct installation of the engineering chain is crucial to minimizing misalignment issues. Ensuring proper tension, alignment, and center-to-center distance between sprockets can help reduce misalignment and prolong chain life.
  5. Regular Maintenance: Regular maintenance, including chain inspection and lubrication, can help identify and address misalignment issues early on. Promptly correcting misalignment can prevent further damage and ensure efficient chain operation.
  6. Alignment Devices: In some cases, alignment devices or tools may be used during installation to ensure accurate alignment between the sprockets. These devices can help improve chain performance and reduce wear caused by misalignment.

It is essential to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for chain installation, maintenance, and alignment to optimize the performance and service life of engineering chains. Addressing misalignment issues promptly and keeping the chain in proper working condition will contribute to the overall reliability and efficiency of the machinery or equipment in which the chain is used.

Can engineering chains be used for power transmission in conveyor systems?

Yes, engineering chains are commonly used for power transmission in conveyor systems. Conveyor systems are widely employed in various industries for material handling, and they require reliable and efficient power transmission methods to move heavy loads over long distances. Engineering chains are well-suited for these applications due to their robust construction, high load-carrying capacity, and versatility.

Conveyor systems often consist of a series of sprockets and a continuous loop of engineering chain that runs over these sprockets. The chain is driven by a motorized sprocket, and as it moves, it carries the conveyed material along the conveyor’s length. The design of engineering chains ensures smooth engagement with the sprockets, enabling efficient power transmission and precise material handling.

Depending on the specific requirements of the conveyor system, various types of engineering chains can be used. For instance, for applications where cleanliness is crucial, stainless steel chains with self-lubricating properties may be employed. In environments with high corrosion potential, corrosion-resistant coatings on chain components can extend the chain’s lifespan.

Furthermore, engineering chains can be customized to fit different conveyor configurations, allowing for the design of complex conveyor systems that suit specific production processes or spatial limitations.

In summary, engineering chains are an excellent choice for power transmission in conveyor systems due to their durability, load capacity, and adaptability. They ensure smooth and reliable operation, making them indispensable in material handling and conveyor applications across various industries.

Can engineering chains be used in corrosive or harsh environments?

Yes, engineering chains can be designed and manufactured to withstand corrosive or harsh environments. When operating in such conditions, it is crucial to select the appropriate materials and coatings for the chain to ensure its durability and performance. Here are some considerations for using engineering chains in corrosive or harsh environments:

1. Material Selection: Choose materials that have high corrosion resistance, such as stainless steel or nickel-plated chains. These materials can withstand exposure to moisture, chemicals, and other corrosive agents.

2. Coatings and Surface Treatments: Applying specialized coatings or surface treatments to the chain can further enhance its corrosion resistance. Common coatings include zinc plating, chromate conversion coating, and polymer coatings.

3. Sealed Joints: Opt for engineering chains with sealed joints or special seals to protect the internal components from contaminants and moisture, reducing the risk of corrosion.

4. Environmental Ratings: Some engineering chains may come with specific environmental ratings that indicate their suitability for certain conditions. Check these ratings to ensure the chain is appropriate for the intended environment.

5. Regular Maintenance: Even with corrosion-resistant materials and coatings, regular maintenance is essential. Keep the chain clean, lubricated, and free from debris to prevent corrosion and premature wear.

6. Compatibility with Other Components: Ensure that all components in the chain system, such as sprockets and bearings, are also suitable for use in corrosive environments.

7. Temperature Considerations: Take into account the operating temperature range of the environment. Some materials may perform differently at extreme temperatures, affecting the chain’s overall performance.

8. Chemical Exposure: If the chain will be exposed to specific chemicals or substances, verify that the chosen materials and coatings are resistant to those chemicals.

By carefully selecting the right materials, coatings, and design features, engineering chains can effectively handle corrosive or harsh environments, maintaining their functionality and longevity in challenging industrial applications.

The most common measure of roller chain’s strength is tensile strength. Tensile strength represents how much load a chain can withstand under a one-time load before breaking. Just as important as tensile strength is a chain’s fatigue strength. The critical factors in a chain’s fatigue strength is the quality of steel used to manufacture the chain, the heat treatment of the chain components, the quality of the pitch hole fabrication of the linkplates, and the type of shot plus the intensity of shot peen coverage on the linkplates. Other factors can include the thickness of the linkplates and the design (contour) of the linkplates. The rule of thumb for roller chain operating on a continuous drive is for the chain load to not exceed a mere 1/6 or 1/9 of the chain’s tensile strength, depending on the type of master links used (press-fit vs. slip-fit)[citation needed]. Roller chains operating on a continuous drive beyond these thresholds can and typically do fail prematurely via linkplate fatigue failure.

The standard minimum ultimate strength of the ANSI 29.1 steel chain is 12,500 x (pitch, in inches)2. X-ring and O-Ring chains greatly decrease wear by means of internal lubricants, increasing chain life. The internal lubrication is inserted by means of a vacuum when riveting the chain together.

CHAIN STHangZhouRDS

Standards organizations (such as ANSI and ISO) maintain standards for design, dimensions, and interchangeability of transmission chains. For example, the following Table shows data from ANSI standard B29.1-2011 (Precision Power Transmission Roller Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets) developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). See the references[8][9][10] for additional information.

12 48 40 516
58 58 50 38
34 68 60 12
1 88 80 58

Notes:
1. The pitch is the distance between roller centers. The width is the distance between the link plates (i.e. slightly more than the roller width to allow for clearance).
2. The right-hand digit of the standard denotes 0 = normal chain, 1 = lightweight chain, 5 = rollerless bushing chain.
3. The left-hand digit denotes the number of eighths of an inch that make up the pitch.
4. An “H” following the standard number denotes heavyweight chain. A hyphenated number following the standard number denotes double-strand (2), triple-strand (3), and so on. Thus 60H-3 denotes number 60 heavyweight triple-strand chain.
 A typical bicycle chain (for derailleur gears) uses narrow 1⁄2-inch-pitch chain. The width of the chain is variable, and does not affect the load capacity. The more sprockets at the rear wheel (historically 3-6, nowadays 7-12 sprockets), the narrower the chain. Chains are sold according to the number of speeds they are designed to work with, for example, “10 speed chain”. Hub gear or single speed bicycles use 1/2″ x 1/8″ chains, where 1/8″ refers to the maximum thickness of a sprocket that can be used with the chain.

Typically chains with parallel shaped links have an even number of links, with each narrow link followed by a broad one. Chains built up with a uniform type of link, narrow at 1 and broad at the other end, can be made with an odd number of links, which can be an advantage to adapt to a special chainwheel-distance; on the other side such a chain tends to be not so strong.

Roller chains made using ISO standard are sometimes called as isochains.

Types of Roller Chains

There are several types of roller chains available. These chains have different properties and serve different purposes. Here you will learn about diamond roller chains, X-ring and O-ring chains, inverted tooth chains, and self-lubricating chains. You can choose the type that best suits your needs by reading this article. It will also help you make an informed decision. Buying the right roller chain for your needs is easy. Hope this article is helpful to you!

Self-lubricating chain

Self-lubricating roller chains are designed to increase performance while maintaining a high level of cleanliness. These chains are made of sintered alloy bushings impregnated with lubricant and pins specially treated to release oil when necessary. These chains have a long service life and are suitable for environments where regular lubrication is difficult. Below are the benefits of self-lubricating roller chains.
Maintenance-free self-lubricating roller chains are the perfect replacement for standard roller chains. They are suitable for packaging, printing, textile, and sawmill applications. These chains reduce downtime and increase productivity. Furthermore, they reduce the risk of contamination. Another advantage is that there are many types of self-lubricating roller chains to choose from, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs. To learn more about these benefits, read the Maintenance Free Roller Chains Market Report published by Dataintelo.
CAN-AM self-lubricating roller chains ensure stick-free operation. These chains are available in ANSI/BS standard and double pitch variants. They feature oil-impregnated bushings and preloaded sintered steel bushings for long life. These self-lubricating roller chains are drop-in replacements for standard roller chains and run on standard roller chain sprockets.<br/

X-Ring and O-Ring Chains

Both O-ring and X-ring roller chains are sealed and unsealed. You’ll find them on vintage bikes and small economy cars. Other applications include bulldozer treads and conveyor belts. Standard chains are made of simple plain bearings that require lubrication every few hundred miles. While the former is the most affordable type of roller chain, they do require more maintenance than O-rings.
The main difference between the two types of chains is the friction and cost they generate. X-rings are slightly less expensive, but they create less friction than O-rings. X-rings are a more affordable option for road riders, while O-ring chains are more expensive for off-road racers. In some cases, X-ring and O-ring roller chains can be distinguished by the price tag alone.
Both X-ring and O-ring roller sprockets are available in a variety of styles. The two styles offer comparable performance, but there are some key differences to consider. X-rings are generally better for longer travel as they offer greater durability and performance. O-rings are usually more expensive than X-ring chains, but if you’re thinking about long trips, they’re a great option.

Reverse chain

Inverted roller chains are often referred to as silent chains. They have two protrusions on each board. The outer surface is ground to include an angle of sixty or seventy degrees. These protrusions about the working surfaces of the sprocket teeth. The inner surface or shape of the sprocket can clear the sprocket. This produces a silent but still valid chain. This type of chain is used in transmissions to move heavy objects.
There are three basic types of inverted toothed roller chains. Simple chains are single chains, while double and triple chains have two or three strands. In these types of chains, the pins pass through-hardened steel bushings at the ends of the links. The main difference between these types is their size. If you are not sure what size you need, first calculate the capacity of the chain. You might be surprised to learn that the smaller the diameter the better.
The number of links in a reverse roller chain determines the frequency of vibration. The frequency depends on the size of the chain and the length of the chain between the sprockets. The shorter the chain, the bigger the “pull” – the up-and-down jitter caused by the sprocket. This causes additional peak loads on the drive and shortens its life.

PEER Chain’s Heavy Duty Series Double-Stranded Roller Chains

Heavy-duty double-strand roller chains are ideal for industrial and agricultural use as they provide extra stability and strength. PEER Chains manufactures chains in various lengths and pitches and offers different accessories including sprockets and pre tensioned chains.

It also provides detailed company profiles and analyses of each vendor, including recent product launches, partnerships, and mergers and acquisitions. It also provides the competitive landscape, including company profiles, product mix, and production scale. Once you know what to expect from the market, you can make a buying decision.

Maintenance of Mechanical Flexible Couplings

Proper maintenance of mechanical flexible couplings on roller chains is critical to ensuring the proper operation and reliability of the system. Maintenance of these couplings includes periodic inspection of the components. Check for signs of fatigue and wear. Regular inspections will help determine when to replace the coupling. It also helps determine the remaining life of the coupling.
Couplings should be replaced periodically for optimum performance. When replacing, be sure to use the correct parts. Make sure the coupling type matches the coupling type and chain size. Identical coupling parts may not fit, so a cross-reference guide or manufacturer’s spec number may be helpful. Make sure that the coupling is fitted with a suitable roller chain.
Mechanical elastic couplings on the roller chain can be easily lubricated to avoid premature failure. Elastomeric couplings can accommodate minor shaft misalignments and are suitable for high rotational speeds. Also, it absorbs shocks. Its flexibility is due to loose components. Additionally, lubrication is essential to reduce wear on coupling components.
chain

Roller chain size

Knowing the basic dimensions of the rollers is essential if you need to find the right roller chain for your needs. The three key dimensions of a roller chain are pitch, width, and pin diameter. These dimensions are important because they are used to identify the type of chain. These dimensions do not normally appear in chain manufacturer catalogs. They are usually designed for people designing new equipment. They are not important to maintenance technicians, but they are important to know if you are looking for a specific type of roller chain.
Once you know the exact size of the chain, you can move on to choosing the correct type. You can use the printable template to measure your chain, which makes it easy to compare with the size chart. Don’t forget to check the rest of the roller chain’s specs to make sure it fits your machine. Using the Roller Chain Size Chart is an easy way to determine the proper length, width, and height for your application.
When buying a roller chain, be sure to check the number of teeth and the ratio of the two. A common ratio is 2:1. The drive sprocket must have at least twice as many teeth as the roller sprocket. If the chain is used for high precision, check the type of sprocket as this will determine the correct size of the chain. You can also choose between slip-fit ​​and press-fit mid plates.

Types of roller chains and their applications

There are many factors that can cause premature wear of the roller chain. They include friction, external shocks, and lack of lubrication or adjustment. Here are some tips to help you prevent premature chain wear. Read on to learn more about the different types of roller chains and their applications. You’ll be surprised how quickly the roller chain wears out! Below we have listed some of the most common causes of premature roller chain wear.

Double strand heavy-duty roller chain

If your application requires a heavy-duty chain, a double-strand steel roller chain is an excellent choice. Double-strand steel roller chains are manufactured to reduce stress fatigue and stretch, making them ideal for industrial and logging equipment. This type of chain is also heat-treated and shot-peened for excellent fatigue resistance and strength. Listed below are some of the advantages of double-strand heavy-duty roller chains.
When comparing single-strand and double-strand heavy-duty roller chains, double-strand steel roller chains are generally better. They have twice as many side plates and a working load close to that of a twin-strand steel roller chain. Unlike single-strand steel roller chains, double-strand roller chains are not interchangeable with standard double-sprockets. They use sprockets specially made for double chains.
Double strand chains are particularly strong, resistant to rust and corrosion, and ideal for high-stress applications. They are commonly used in conveyor systems, paper mill equipment, ditches, lifts, seed drills, and various hoisting machinery. They are also used in the wastewater and food processing industries. Chains of this type are used on conveyor lines, so they are an excellent choice for heavy machinery.

Nickel-plated chain

Nickel-plated roller chains are ideal for outdoor work, mildly corrosive environments, and applications requiring a good chain appearance. Nickel plating increases component hardness and improves wear resistance while ensuring that all surfaces are protected. The benefits of nickel-plated roller chains include increased durability, corrosion resistance, and a bright shine. Here are a few reasons to use such a chain. All chains are manufactured to the highest quality and safety standards.
Although slightly corrosive, nickel-plated roller chains are ideal for applications in high salt and high humidity environments. However, nickel plating can peel and chip, so nickel roller chains are not recommended for use in food processing or other environments exposed to corrosive substances. ANSI B29.1 standard chain can be nickel-plated and is ideal for a variety of applications including industrial garage doors and boat lifts.
CZPT USA Corp. is committed to being the premier agricultural and industrial chain supplier in the United States. By focusing on quality, they ensure their chains provide long life and unmatched wear resistance. If you’re looking for a quality plated roller chain, consider choosing a chain from a leading manufacturer. If you need the durability and strength of a nickel roller chain, choose CZPT USA Corp. We manufacture the highest quality chains in the USA.
In addition to high strength, nickel-plated roller chains are also available in elastomer profiles. These types of chains can handle 1/2 to 3/4″ loads, depending on their pitch. They are also ideal for gentle traction on sensitive surfaces. The strength of these chains depends on the type of the main link used in the chain. Nickel-plated roller chains are available in a variety of sizes and are priced to suit a variety of applications.

Stainless steel chain

Stainless steel roller chains are ideal for industrial applications in two harsh environments. They have excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, as well as high strength. Chains are available in three grades to meet various operational needs. 304SS is suitable for food contact applications, while 316SS and 606SS offer excellent corrosion resistance. 600 series stainless steel provides excellent corrosion and wears resistance with precipitation hardened components.
In food processing, stainless steel chains are often exposed to extremely high temperatures and high concentrations of acids, alkalis, and water. They are also resistant to high concentrations of acid and chlorine. And their low magnetic permeability allows them to function properly in hygienic conditions. But stainless steel roller chains also have some disadvantages. Despite their excellent corrosion resistance, these chains are not recommended for use in food processing environments.
Compared to carbon steel, stainless steel roller chains are softer and hold longer. This means it may wear out faster. Since stainless steel is not heat-treated, its surface hardness is different from carbon steel. It retains heat for longer, reducing its tensile strength and extending its lifespan. Nonetheless, stainless steel roller chains are ideal for a variety of industrial applications.
The stainless steel roller chain is made of high-quality material. For example, the Premier series stainless steel roller chains are manufactured in Japan using a special type of stainless steel shot peening process. They also feature a solid roller design that reduces side flex. The Premier range also features highly polished side panels and is available in 10′ boxes, 50′ reels, and 100′ reels. They can also be cut to length if necessary.

Accumulation conveyor

Roller chain accumulation conveyors are designed to transport loads up to 440 lbs or 200 kg. The accumulator chain is located on large idler rollers to ensure quiet operation and the minimum force required to hold the pallet. They are suitable for various applications and can be integrated into the entire processing system. These conveyor belts have T-slots on three sides of the profile frame for connecting brackets and sensors.
Sensors installed in the accumulation area detect objects on the conveyor line and send signals to the motors that power the accumulation area. The motor can be external or built into the drum itself. Other types of sensors use light, such as photosensors. Photoelectric sensors detect objects by emitting and receiving specific wavelengths of light. This option is cost-effective because the sensor rollers are located slightly above the surface of the conveyor line.
Roller chain accumulation conveyors can be constructed of steel or plastic rollers. It can be equipped with staggered or coaxial rollers. Safety cover prevents accidental insertion of fingers into the chain, improving operator safety. The safety cover is compatible with the chain type and required bend radius. These caps are made of plastic clips that fit permanently on the inner links of the chain. They do not interfere with conveyed goods or workpiece carriers.
There are two basic types of accumulation conveyors: free flow and accumulation. Free-flowing chains allow conveyed objects to slide directly onto the chain while stacking chains allow goods to slide under the chain. Accumulation chains are commonly used in the food and packaging industries and have rollers that support conveyed objects. The free-flowing conveyor system eliminates the risk of damaging objects, as the rollers in the accumulation conveyor are in direct contact with the bottom of the cargo.

Custom attachment

Standard accessories for roller chains are available in a variety of styles. Typically, they can be assembled on pin or roller links. When referring to connecting chains, it is important to know how to refer to pitch and center-to-center spacing. The pitch of the roller chain should include inner and outer roller links and must alternate every three pitches. Additionally, you can order custom accessories for pin or roller linkages. Below are some examples of custom accessories for roller chains.
Stainless steel roller chains are one of the most well-known chains for this application. It has a stainless steel 304 finish to create curved and straight lugs. For even more flexibility, you can also request custom accessories such as chain plate holes and pins. For added safety, various accessories can be attached to the single-pitch roller chain. It can also be made with multiple pins or curved lugs.
HKK Chains is stocked with much stainless steel and carbon steel standard connecting chains. Most of the time, they can assemble a custom accessory chain in no time. For example, a single-pitch chain with two connecting holes is called a wide profile. Additionally, chains can be manufactured in a variety of materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, Lambda, plastic, and Ultra WP. In addition, a wide range of unique accessories is available for special industries.

What to look for in a roller chain

There are many different factors to consider when purchasing a roller chain. One of the most important factors is tensile strength, which represents the force required to break the chain. Roller chains are available in three different tensile strengths: minimum, average and ultimate. Each strength reflects a different limit to the load the chain can handle. However, these limits are not always equal and you should be aware of the differences between roller chains.

Canonical chain

Most roller chains have standard sizes printed on the side panels. This is usually “40” or “C2080H”, but can also be the letter “B”. If the chain is old, it will need to be cleaned to see its size. You can find the size on the standard roller chain size chart, but not everyone is marked. To determine the size, measure the diameter and pitch of the chain, then compare the results to the chart to see what size you need.
Heavy-duty roller chains are available with heat-treated pins, side plates, and rollers. In addition to being heat treated, they are also factory pre-stretched, which reduces wear on these parts. If properly maintained, they can last for years, reducing the risk of failure or corrosion. Depending on the application, standard roller chains are available in different sizes. It can be purchased separately. There are several options to choose from, depending on the size and strength of the application.
PEER roller chains contain solid rollers to reduce shock loads on the sprocket teeth. Heat treating and preloading all components of the PEER chain helps minimize initial elongation. Hot-dip lubrication ensures complete lubrication of all chain components, extending their life and reducing maintenance costs. For heavy-duty applications, ASME/ANSI-B29.1 chain is a good choice.
Standard roller chains are made of steel or alloy steel. However, it can be made of other materials such as stainless steel. In addition to steel, stainless steel is often used in food processing machinery where chain lubrication is an issue. Brass and nylon are also sometimes used. However, they are not that popular. Therefore, you should always check with your supplier before purchasing. By comparing the tensile strength of two different chains and making an informed decision, you can get the best price and service.

Chain without bushing

Bushless roller chains have advantages over conventional roller chains. Unlike conventional chains, bushless chains have extensive lateral flexibility, which increases the chain’s lubrication flow. The inner plates of bushless chains have protruding shoulders so the oil can flow through them more easily and efficiently. This is an important characteristic of a smooth-running chain. Additionally, bushless chains may have improved shifting performance.
The strength of a bushingless roller chain is measured in terms of tensile strength and fatigue strength. The former measures the load a chain can withstand before breaking. Fatigue strength is equally important, and factors that affect fatigue strength include the steel used to make the chain components, the pitch hole fabrication, the type of shot peening on the chain, and the design and thickness of the chain. For example, if the chain is too thin, it may not be enough for heavy-duty applications.
Like traditional roller chains, bushingless roller chains have two different types of links. The inner link has two inner plates connected by pins, while the outer chain has two outer plates held together by bushings. A bushingless roller chain is similar to a traditional chain, except it eliminates a step in the assembly process by stamping the tube into the inner plate. So if you want a smoother ride, a bushingless roller chain is a better choice.
There are two different sizes of bushingless roller chains. One size is designed for use with standard single-strand chains, while the other size is designed for use with double-strand or triple-strand chains. Bushless chains are generally shorter than conventional chains, so they can fit in tighter spaces. Bushless chains are made of the highest quality materials. These chain attachments are case hardened for optimum strength and durability.

Mute chain

The silent roller chain has a smooth, low-noise drive. They are made of stacked rows of flat chainplates with a gear-like profile that meshes with the sprocket teeth. Each chainplate is attached to a corresponding sprocket, which also allows the chain to bend. While these basic components are the same for every silent roller chain, there are many variations that allow them to be used in a variety of applications.
The most popular high-speed transmission, silent chains feature gear-like sprockets. They can be made from single or multiple strands of material. Single-strand chains are less expensive than multi-strand chains, but they tend to wear out faster if not lubricated. Single-strand roller chains can be used for years without lubrication, but for your application, wide silent chains are still worth considering.
The design and construction of silent chains make them ideal for conveying a wide variety of products. They have flat, heat-resistant surfaces. They are also durable and non-slip. They are available in a variety of pitch sizes, widths, and mounting styles. Whether you need chains for general purpose conveyors or glass bottle transport applications, we have you covered. Ask about the benefits of silent roller chain conveyors.
Inverted tooth chains are another option for quieter chains. These chains are designed to reduce noise from engine-related friction. Silent chains are more common, and manufacturers have fallen in love with them. A silent chain consists of several links connected to the sprocket teeth. Teeth rotate to reduce noise, vibration, and chord action. These are the main reasons why silent chains are so popular.
chain

ANSI chain pitch

To measure your bike’s chain pitch, you can use a caliper. This measurement is taken from the center of the rolling pin to the center of the next rolling pin. Chains come in many sizes, but ANSI is the most common chain standard in the United States. A caliper is handy if you’re not sure which size to buy, as it allows you to check for worn sprockets.
Chains that meet ANSI standards will be characterized by a certain pitch. This measurement is based on the width and spacing of the roll. The spacing is usually greater than the width. The standard number will be the right number for the width of the chain or the left number for the rollers. The number on the left indicates whether the chain is lightweight or heavyweight. Heavyweight chains are designated by the suffix “H”.
Common chain sizes are based on ANSI chain pitch. Pitch is the minimum distance between bushing and sprocket. The smaller the chain pitch, the greater the total distance between the two points. This means the chain will last longer. However, if you are buying a chain for a specific application, you should check the pitch carefully as it can affect the performance of the chain.

Roller chain wear measurement

The purpose of roller chain wear measurement is to prevent breakage by monitoring the strain on the chain. There are several ways to measure roller chain wear. The first is to remove the chain from its working position and measure the distance from the sprocket to its measuring end. Another way is to measure the pitch of the chain or the distance between two pins. This method is superior to other methods because it is convenient and accurate.
When measuring the wear of a roller chain, it is important to note that the elements of the chain will gradually deform. About 3.75% of the total wear will be on the pins and the rest will be on the internal links. These wear measurements will vary based on the nominal pitch of the chain and the amount of friction the chain is experiencing. Proper lubrication between pins and bushings, load and frequency of articulation all affect wear rates.
It is important to measure the amount of wear on the roller chain to avoid excessive machine failures. The longer the chain runs, the more wear it will wear. Although the length of the chain should be less than the center distance, the excessive load will cause premature wear. Therefore, lubrication is essential. Additionally, the sag of the chain should not exceed 2% to 4% of its center-to-center distance. Finally, check for unusual noise or visible defects. A common cause of excessive roller chain wear is the size of the load. Every chain manufacturer sets a maximum workload for its product.
There are several ways to measure roller chain wear. If using a high-speed drive, it should have at least 11 teeth, and a medium-speed drive should have at least 25 teeth. Also, be sure to check the length of the chain, even if you should. The same goes for the pin diameter, which should be the same or different pitch as the roller chain.

What is a drive chain?

A drive chain is a wheeled device that transmits power from one gear to another. The drive chain is usually an oval ring around a corner or worm gear. On the other hand, idler pulleys do not transmit power and are not used to move the chain. In some cases, drive chains can be used with idler pulleys to transport objects. This allows the drive chain to recover some power from the second gear.

conveyor chain

There are many types of conveyor chains to choose from. One type is a closed joint chain. It consists of the barrel and connecting rod, made from a single casting and heat-treated for high strength and durability. Conveyor chains typically have low running speeds and are typically made of malleable iron. Another type of chain is the power transmission chain, which is used to transmit mechanical power. They feature efficient lubrication and are stronger than conventional conveyor chains.
Roller chain pitches can range from half an inch to a third of an inch. They are available in steel and nickel-plated steel. They can be used with inline or staggered rollers and can be designed with different pitch levels. They can also have bushings between the chainplates or gaps between the teeth to increase their maximum spacing. When choosing a conveyor chain, remember to properly lubricate bearing surfaces to minimize power absorption, wear, and corrosion. Mineral oils of medium viscosity are suitable for normal operating temperatures. SAE 20W50 is suitable. Manufacturers also offer self-lubricating chains.
Conveyor chains are used in many industries. The automotive industry has traditionally used these chains for bulk transport. Their reliability and low cost make them an excellent choice for a variety of applications. CZPT Chains offers stainless steel and CZPT conveyor chains to meet your unique requirements. If you’re in the market for a new conveyor, don’t forget to shop around. CZPT Chain can help you find the perfect one.
The regular drive version consists of an ASME/ANSI roller chain wrapped around a driven sprocket. It can also be configured for variable rpm. The gear ratio between the two parts determines the reduction or increase in speed. In some cases, solution chains can be used. Roller chains are more efficient. Then, there are solutions for both cases. There are many types of conveyor chains to choose from.
Conveyor chain pitch also plays an important role in performance. The smaller the pitch of the chain, the faster it spins. On the other hand, a smaller pitch will require more teeth on the sprocket, which means more links will be engaged during the movement. This smaller articulation angle also produces smoother motion. It also reduces vibration. Therefore, CZPT Chains can be trusted for a long time.

roller chain

The performance of a drive chain depends on how well it is maintained and lubricated. Careful attention to detail is required when selecting a roller chain, which is one of the most important components in a drive chain. Its proper lubrication and assembly will significantly affect its wear life. Here are some important tips to follow when buying a roller chain:
The size of the drive chain should be selected according to the sprockets used. The large sprocket should have at least 25 teeth, and the small sprocket should have fewer teeth. The pitch of a drive chain is the contact angle between the chain and the sprocket. The smaller the sprocket, the smaller the contact angle of the two parts. Larger sprockets are better, but smaller sprockets must never have fewer teeth.
When purchasing a roller chain, be sure to consider the maximum speed of the small sprocket. This will determine how much lubrication you need. Different lubrication systems have different requirements. Manual lubrication limits how many feet per minute the drive chain can run, while oil bath lubrication can get you up to 1100 ft/min. The only way to maximize drive chain speed is to purchase a pump lubrication system.
Once you have the right length, you can determine if you need a new one. To do this you have to move the axis to measure the length. Once the length is determined, the drive chain should be removed from the sprocket and measured using the ANSI specified measuring load. You should also follow safety guidelines when measuring your chain. If you want to maximize the life of your drive chain, be sure to follow these tips.
Another important consideration is the type of environment you operate in. For applications that need to avoid rubbing steel rails, it is best to use a roller chain that can withstand a clean indoor environment. Although roller chains are generally more durable, they must be stored properly to avoid corrosion. If you care about the environment, consider opting for double chain. Its durability and low maintenance costs will make it a valuable investment in your business.

closed pivot

Closed-end pivot drive chains are used in a variety of applications. They are known for their durability, high strength, and long life. They are available in a variety of grades, including grade 400, grade 600, and grade 800 pivots, which can withstand the high forces required for certain applications. Enclosed pivot chains can be used to lift, pull, convey and transfer heavy loads.
Class 400 closed-end pivot chain features one-piece cast offset link construction. Steel pins connect each link and are prevented from rotating by head stops. This design allows the pin to connect inside the barrel without breaking. This type of chain is the most commonly used and has the highest durability. In addition to being extremely durable, it offers long-lasting performance and smooth operation.
Another closed-end pivot conveyor chain drive is called a power drive chain. These chains consist of barrels and links used to transmit rotation from one shaft to another. The barrels of the closed-end pivot chains are made of steel, which allows them to run easily on the sprockets. Block drive chains are used for low-speed applications, but they can be noisy when the chain is in contact with the sprockets.
The enclosed pivot drive chain has rollers on both ends to minimize wear. These chains are usually made of steel and can be used in areas where high-speed power transmission is required. They are also available in heavy-duty versions. Unlike other types of chains, steel pivot chains are designed for a variety of applications. They are suitable for heavy-duty applications and their open barrel design allows for minimal contact with the pins in the barrel and the root of the sprocket.
chain

Linear chain

CZPT is an important part of linear drive technology. This type of chain is capable of delivering real power in tight spaces. Typically, loads are moved by pulling or pushing. CZPT can perform both types of movements. They can push and pull additional loads. This type of chain can also be wound and stored in the magazine. It is a popular choice for small machine tools and many other uses.
Unlike traditional mechanical chains, CZPT uses a push-pull strategy to move heavy objects. It is a rigid locking design that prevents kinking and allows the chain to transmit force without bending. The CZPT is an excellent choice for moving large loads and is particularly versatile in power transmission. However, CZPT is more expensive than traditional drive chain options.
The service life of a linear chain depends on its design, material type and size. You may want to buy a good quality chain, but it’s not necessary in all cases. While superior quality can extend the life of the chain, it may not be necessary for low-speed drives or very light shock loads. If you’re not dealing with high-velocity shock loads, you probably don’t need features like oil reservoirs or bushing grooves.
The size of the drive sprocket can have a major impact on the overall life of the linear chain. It determines how fast the chain can go and how much horsepower it can produce. An 11-tooth chain will hit about half its rated speed, but only about 30 percent of its rated horsepower. You can extend the life of your linear chain by choosing a drive sprocket with a higher number of teeth. It is best to choose a drive sprocket with a high number of teeth, but make sure the number of teeth is even. This will ensure that your chain wear is evenly distributed.

Choosing a drive chain for a belt conveyor

The drive chain is used to move heavy objects on the conveyor chain. Chains are magnetic, antistatic, high temperature, or chemical resistant, depending on the application. These types of drive chains are used in many different industries. A common machine that uses this type of drive is a chain hoist. Chain hoists are designed to lift heavy loads with minimal effort. Chains are often used to transport heavy loads.

roller chain

Whether using a roller chain as a drive chain or a belt conveyor can be tricky. Whether it’s a small low-speed drive with manual lubrication or a high-speed pump-lubricated drive with multiple sprockets, there are several factors to consider when choosing a roller chain. First, you need to consider motor horsepower and rpm. The speed of the motor determines how much chain you need. For example, if you are using a low-speed drive, you will need to choose a low-pitch, high-pitch chain. Another thing to consider is chain length – ideally, you can go for an even number of sprockets and chains, but never go smaller.
The lubrication system is also important because the lubrication system must be able to deliver enough oil. The type of oil used to lubricate a chain depends on its operating environment, temperature and speed. Wear is caused by pressure on the bearing, angular sliding of the pins, and rotation of the rollers. There are five different types of lubrication methods available, depending on the system used. A high-quality carbon steel chain is a major advantage when operating at high temperatures, as it can withstand higher temperatures.
The materials of construction for roller chains vary by application. Typically, the most common materials are steel and stainless steel, but sometimes alloy steels are used in food processing machinery that may have lubrication problems. Nylon and brass are also sometimes used. Some industries require heavy-duty chains. If you need an extremely heavy chain, you may want to consider a heavy-duty roller chain. If you are not sure which type of chain is best for your application, consult an industry expert.
Unlike other chains, roller chains are more efficient from a size and weight perspective. While solution chains are useful in some situations, drive chains are more effective for dirty work and slipping on tracks. They are commonly used in construction and manufacturing. There are other advantages to using a drive chain. They are generally stronger than belts, which is a huge benefit. So, if you’re wondering which is better, here are them:

Multi-strand roller chain

The multi-strand roller chains for drive chains market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 20% during the forecast period. Market reports cover product demand, supply, and cost. The report covers the global market including company profiles, product details, and contact information of key players. It also takes into account the revenue generated by different application areas. The report contains 159 pages of useful information and data. It is an essential tool for anyone involved in drive chain manufacturing.
The essential characteristics of multi-strand chains are their power ratings and allowable bearing area pressures. Power rating is an important characteristic that determines the chain’s ability to transmit a specific load. Typically, multi-strand chains are rated in the range of 12,000 watts per strand. However, their capabilities are limited by link plate fatigue, roller impact fatigue, and wear between pins and bushings.
Energy Series chains are ideal for high-speed and high shock load applications. The chain is designed to provide reliable power and withstand the rigors of the oil and gas industry. It uses high-strength steel and double-coated rolls. These chains come in different lengths and come in two types: single-strand and multi-strand. It is best to consult a professional to find out which chain best suits your needs.
The global multi-strand roller chains market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period. From 2011 to 2019, the industry is expected to grow by nearly 6%. However, the outlook for this market is not optimistic, with some companies experiencing negative growth over the past year. Nonetheless, slowing global economic growth and tightening COVID-19 regulations are likely to hinder the market growth.
Although requirements vary by application, it must be remembered that the load on a multi-strand roller chain must not be greater than 1/9 or 1/6 of the tensile strength of the chain. If the load exceeds this threshold, the chainplates will fatigue. This is the main reason why roller chains are expensive. However, this is not always the case. Multi-strand roller chains are a great idea if you are looking for an affordable and reliable drive chain.

double chain

If you’re looking for an industrial-grade drive chain, you’ve probably considered a double chain. The chain meshes with the sprockets on either side of the gears. It comes in different styles, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The CZPT duplex series has twice the power capacity of standard SC duplex chains. This type of chain is usually best for new applications. On the other hand, SC double chain chains are the cheapest but have less weight and power capacity.
Another option is a triple drive chain. This type of drive chain has an additional row of plates and contains three sprockets. Its unique design reduces the weight and impact velocity of the timing chain. It is usually used in automotive applications. It is ideal for low to medium-load timing applications. It is also available in acoustically optimized versions. Three-quarter inch pitch double chain chains are widely used in gasoline engine aids and timing drives.
chain

flat top chain

High friction rubber is usually installed on the top or bottom of a flat top drive chain to improve its high friction surface and prevent interference during side bend conveying. The chain plate can be customized with thin rubber layer or thick elastic polyurethane rubber according to customer requirements. In addition to providing high friction, the flat top chain also provides excellent anti-slip properties for glass bottles.
Premium steel flat top chain with high quality surface finish and excellent wear resistance. They have a high level of noise reduction and can be used in heavy duty conveying applications. These chains are available in a variety of alloys such as stainless steel or aluminum. Some models are designed to be very rugged and last longer. Aluminum and galvanized steel chains are popular choices for these chains.
Flat Top Drive Chain Conveyors are versatile and come in an endless combination of configurations. Drives can be connected end-to-end to form long conveyor lines, while side-curved flat-top chains are versatile enough to handle tandem, serpentine or carousel configurations. Standard and heavy duty models are also available. Flat top chains can be used in many different applications including food, beverages and other commodities.
Standard flat top chains are usually rectangular or L-shaped and designed for use on straight conveyors. In some cases, space constraints may require a U-shaped or rectangular conveyor line. For smoother conveying, side-curved flat-top chains can be used. These chains are paired with regular rectangular chain plates and tall pins for high load capacity. They come in different widths, including multi-strand chains.
