Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some questions we frequently receive about roller chains:
What is the purpose of roller chain attachments?
The purpose of using roller chain attachments is to offer a wider range of capabilities for your roller chains. We offer a lot of attachments that can be used with roller chains that are specific to certain special functions. When you couple attachments with roller chains, you’ll find that your roller chains are even more capable of moving heavy equipment while remaining cost-effective, reliable and sturdy.
What are the types of chain drives?
A chain drive is essentially a method of transferring power from one mechanical piece to another place. There are three types of chain drives, and they include the following:
- Conveyor chain drives: A type of chain that has been developed specifically for conveyor systems
- Hauling and hoisting chain drives: A drive that raises and lowers loads using a wheel or drum (think elevators as an example for this type of mechanism)
- Power-transmitting drive: these are used for mechanical power transmission and come in handy when the distance from the centers of shafts is shorter than usual (there are three types of these chains: bush rollers, silent chains and bush- or blockchains)
How do you attach a roller chain?
For starters, you’re going to need an angle grinder, either a chain or punch screw, chain vise and either a level, straight edge or laser alignment piece of equipment. For the first step, you’ll take the riveted part of the two pins and grind them with the grinder, removing any cotter pins if you have to. Then, make sure the chain is secure in the vise. Use the secondary and primary punches and remove one of the pin sets. For step three, check both the parallel shaft and sprocket axial alignments using either the level, straight edge or laser tool. A misaligned chain will hold uneven loads across its width, resulting in uneven wear on roller link plates and sprockets. Sprockets should be placed as close as possible to bearings. Then you’ll install both chain ends to the sprocket and link them together and fasten them with cotters or a spring clip (you might need some help to support the chain).
What is chain pitch?
The size of a chain is determined by three measurements: pitch, gauge and drive link count. Pitch is the distance between three rivets divided by two. Gauge is the thickness of the drive links where they connect to form a loop. Drive link count refers to how many drive links are in a chain loop. The drive sprocket must be the same pitch as the chain, and if applicable, the bar nose sprocket must also match.
