ANSI Standard Quadruple-Strand Roller Chain

The quadruple-strand roller chain, also called the quad roller chain, comprises four rows of single-strand roller chains manufactured together. Our high tensile strength quadruple-strand roller chain is manufactured from the highest quality chain materials available to match all ANSI B29.1 industry standards for roller chains.

However, we don’t stop there. Our quadruple-strand roller chain receives precision heat treatment to improve its maximum strength and wear resistance considerably. In addition, all parts of the chain undergo hot-dip lubrication to ensure maximum smoothness during operation and consequently extend the wear life and reduce maintenance costs of the chain.

All PEER quadruple-strand roller chains are pre-loaded during manufacturing to minimize initial stretch. Our quadruple-strand roller chain also incorporates solid rollers that improve rotation on the bushing and help to reduce impact loads during operation. As a result, you can be sure you are getting only the best quality chain for all your light-, moderate- and heavy-duty applications.

We also offer you unmatched versatility with our supply of matching sprockets and attachments, like the DD-1 attachment, the WSK-2 wide contour attachment, the agricultural chain K attachment, amongst others. These attachments will considerably improve the use cases for your quadruple-strand roller chain. Attachment variety is not the only versatility you get, though. Our ANSI standard quadruple-strand roller chain can also be used in various industries, including but not limited to:

  • Air conditioning;
  • Civil and military aircraft;
  • Bakery machines;
  • Battery manufacturing;
  • Canning;
  • Chocolate manufacturing;
  • Concrete molding equipment;
  • Extrusion machine;
  • Road making;
  • Steelmaking;
  • Robotic systems;
  • Ship engines.


Would you like your quad roller chain in riveted or cottered style construction? The riveted style roller chain has riveted pins on either side throughout its length. This chain is used for many industrial applications, mainly because it is less likely to fail in the circumstance of a sheer shock. A sheer shock occurs when a load is moved perpendicular to the axis of the shaft. Though it is not a common occurrence, it is great knowing that a riveted style roller chain will likely hold up if it did happen. The two most common riveted roller chains in the industry are the standard rivet and the quad-stake rivet. The quad-stake rivet just about offers better shock load resistance and increases the holding power of the side plates, compared to the standard double-stacked rivet.

On the other hand, the cottered-style roller chain is manufactured with ease of repairability as the goal. It incorporates a cotter pin on one side of the chain, while the opposite side of the chain may be dual-staked, as seen in a riveted chain. While it may seem like the cottered style offers way less durability, that isn’t necessarily the case. It might interest you to know that the cottered roller chain also uses press-fit side plates, which is where most of the side plate holding power comes from. The riveted style only shines slightly better in extreme but rare cases of sheer shock. The cottered roller chain also comes in two different styles; a J-Hook cotter and a standard cotter. The J-Hook cotter is specifically manufactured for use in API-certified oil field roller chains. In contrast, the standard cotter configuration is made for use on ANSI and ISO standard roller chains.
