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 means of power transmission.

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 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

An example of 2 ‘ghost’ sprockets tensioning a triplex roller chain system
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:

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 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.

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):

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.

Are there any special considerations for installing roller chains?

Proper installation of roller chains is crucial to ensure their optimal performance and longevity. Here are some key considerations for installing roller chains:

1. Alignment: Ensure proper alignment of the sprockets to prevent side loading and premature wear. The sprockets should be aligned parallel to each other and positioned at the correct distance according to the chain’s pitch.

2. Tension: Proper chain tension is essential for smooth operation and to prevent excessive wear. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the appropriate tension based on the specific chain type and application. It’s important to achieve the correct tension without over-tightening, as excessive tension can lead to increased stress and accelerated wear.

3. Lubrication: Apply the appropriate lubricant to the roller chain during installation. Lubrication helps reduce friction, wear, and heat generation. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the type and frequency of lubrication based on the operating conditions and chain design. Ensure even distribution of lubricant along the chain’s length.

4. Sprocket Teeth Engagement: Check that the chain properly engages with the teeth of the sprockets. The chain should fit snugly into the sprocket teeth without excessive clearance or interference. Incorrect engagement can cause slippage, uneven wear, and premature failure.

5. Chain Length: Ensure that the chain length is appropriate for the application. Avoid excessive slack or excessive tension by adjusting the chain length accordingly. An incorrectly sized chain can lead to poor performance, increased wear, and potential damage to the chain and sprockets.

6. Protection: Consider using chain guards or covers to protect the roller chain from external contaminants such as dust, dirt, or debris. This helps minimize wear and extends the chain’s lifespan, particularly in harsh or dirty environments.

7. Regular Inspection: Regularly inspect the roller chain and sprockets for signs of wear, damage, or misalignment. Monitor the chain’s performance and address any issues promptly to avoid further damage and prevent unexpected downtime.

8. Proper Tools and Techniques: Use appropriate tools and techniques during installation to ensure accuracy and prevent damage to the chain or components. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines or consult with experts for specific installation instructions.

By following these considerations and best practices, you can ensure proper installation of roller chains and maximize their performance and durability in your application.

What are some common causes of roller chain failure?

Roller chain failure can occur due to various factors. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Insufficient Lubrication: One of the primary causes of roller chain failure is inadequate lubrication. Insufficient lubrication leads to increased friction, heat generation, and wear between the chain’s components, such as pins, bushings, and rollers. Over time, this can cause the chain to seize up, deform, or break.

2. Contamination: Contamination of the roller chain with dirt, dust, debris, or foreign particles can accelerate wear and increase the risk of failure. These contaminants can penetrate the chain’s joints, causing abrasive action and reducing the effectiveness of lubrication. Contamination can also cause corrosion, leading to weakened chain links.

3. Misalignment: Improper alignment of the sprockets and other drivetrain components can cause excessive side loading, uneven wear, and accelerated fatigue on the roller chain. Misalignment can result from improper installation, worn sprockets, or misaligned shafts, and it can lead to premature chain failure.

4. Overloading: Subjecting the roller chain to loads beyond its rated capacity can cause stress and fatigue, leading to chain failure. Overloading can occur due to improper application design, sudden shock loads, or continuous operation near or beyond the chain’s maximum load limit.

5. Wear and Fatigue: Over time, roller chains experience wear and fatigue due to normal usage. As the chain articulates around the sprockets, the pins, bushings, and rollers undergo cyclic stress, which can lead to wear, elongation, and eventually chain failure if not addressed through regular maintenance and replacement.

6. Corrosion: Exposure to corrosive environments, such as high humidity, chemicals, or saltwater, can cause corrosion on the roller chain. Corrosion weakens the chain’s structural integrity, leading to reduced load-carrying capacity and increased susceptibility to failure.

Proper maintenance, including regular lubrication, cleaning, inspection for wear and alignment, and avoiding overloading or exposure to harsh environments, is crucial to prevent roller chain failure. Timely replacement of worn or damaged chains and addressing any underlying issues that contribute to chain failure is essential for ensuring the reliable and safe operation of machinery or equipment.

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 means of power transmission.

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 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.

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.

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:

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.

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).

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):

Pitch (inches) Pitch expressed

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.

Can roller chains be used for power transmission in automotive applications?

Yes, roller chains can be used for power transmission in automotive applications. However, it’s important to note that roller chains are not commonly used as the primary method of power transmission in modern automotive systems. The automotive industry has largely transitioned to other technologies such as timing belts and gears for power transmission. Nevertheless, roller chains can still be found in some automotive components and systems. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Engine Timing: Roller chains are commonly used in internal combustion engines to drive the camshafts and synchronize the opening and closing of the engine’s valves. The timing chain ensures precise timing between the crankshaft and camshaft, allowing for efficient engine operation.

2. Transfer Cases: In certain four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles, roller chains are used in the transfer case to transmit power from the transmission to the front and rear axles. The roller chain in this application allows for smooth and efficient power transfer between the different drivetrain components.

3. Other Applications: While roller chains are not as prevalent in other automotive systems, they can be found in some secondary applications such as power steering systems, engine oil pumps, and accessory drives.

It’s important to consider the specific requirements of the automotive application when determining the suitability of a roller chain. Factors such as load capacity, speed, temperature, and environmental conditions need to be carefully evaluated. Additionally, regular maintenance and lubrication are crucial to ensure the longevity and reliable performance of the roller chain in automotive applications.

How do roller chains handle abrasive environments?

Roller chains are designed to handle various operating conditions, including abrasive environments. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Material Selection: Roller chains are typically constructed using high-quality materials that offer good resistance to abrasion. Common materials used for roller chains include alloy steel, stainless steel, or specialized coatings that enhance wear resistance.

2. Surface Hardness: The components of a roller chain, such as the pins, bushings, and rollers, are heat-treated to achieve a high surface hardness. This hardness helps to resist wear caused by abrasive particles present in the environment.

3. Lubrication: Proper lubrication plays a crucial role in protecting roller chains from abrasive wear. Lubricants act as a barrier between the chain components and abrasive contaminants, reducing friction and minimizing wear. The lubricant also helps to flush away any abrasive particles that may come in contact with the chain.

4. Sealing and Protection: Roller chains can be equipped with seals or protective covers to provide an additional layer of defense against abrasive particles. These seals help to prevent contaminants from entering the chain and causing premature wear. Seals also help to retain lubrication within the chain, further enhancing its performance in abrasive environments.

5. Regular Maintenance: Regular inspection and maintenance are essential to ensure the longevity of roller chains in abrasive environments. This includes periodic cleaning to remove accumulated debris and checking for signs of wear or damage. Prompt replacement of worn components is necessary to prevent further deterioration and ensure reliable operation.

While roller chains are generally robust in abrasive environments, it’s important to consider the severity of the abrasion, as extremely abrasive conditions may require specialized chain materials or additional protective measures. Consulting with experts and selecting the appropriate chain design and materials based on the specific application requirements can help maximize the performance and lifespan of roller chains in abrasive environments.

Are there any alternatives to roller chains for power transmission?

Yes, there are several alternatives to roller chains for power transmission, depending on the specific application requirements. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Belt Drives: Belt drives are a common alternative to roller chains for power transmission. They use a flexible belt made of materials such as rubber, polyurethane, or neoprene. Belt drives offer smooth and quiet operation, high-speed capabilities, and can transmit power over long distances. They are often used in applications where precise synchronization is not required.

2. Gear Drives: Gear drives use meshing gears to transmit power. They offer high torque capabilities, precise motion control, and can handle heavy loads. Gear drives are commonly used in applications that require high efficiency and precise speed control, such as industrial machinery, automotive transmissions, and robotics.

3. Timing Belts: Timing belts, also known as synchronous belts, are toothed belts that provide positive power transmission. They are used in applications that require precise synchronization between two or more shafts. Timing belts offer low noise, high efficiency, and resistance to slippage. They are commonly used in automotive engines, industrial automation, and precision machinery.

4. Chain Drives: Chain drives, similar to roller chains, use interconnected links to transmit power. However, chain drives often have larger pitch sizes and heavier-duty construction compared to roller chains. Chain drives offer high load-carrying capacity, durability, and can operate in demanding conditions. They are commonly used in heavy machinery, agricultural equipment, and motorcycles.

5. Direct Drives: Direct drives eliminate the need for mechanical power transmission components like chains or belts. They directly connect the motor or power source to the driven equipment, providing a more efficient and compact solution. Direct drives are commonly used in applications that require high precision, such as CNC machines, robotics, and linear motion systems.

When considering alternatives to roller chains, factors such as load requirements, speed, precision, environmental conditions, and cost must be taken into account. Each alternative has its own advantages and limitations, and the choice depends on the specific needs of the application.

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 means of power transmission.

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 CZPT 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 CZPT 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 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.

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):

Pitch (inches) Pitch expressed
in eighths
ANSI standard
chain number
Width (inches)
14 28 25 18
38 38 35 316
12 48 41 14
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.

roller chain

What are the factors to consider when selecting a roller chain for an application?

Choosing the right roller chain for an application involves considering several important factors. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Load Capacity: The load capacity of the roller chain should match or exceed the maximum anticipated load in the application. Consider the weight and type of the load, as well as any shock loads or dynamic forces that may be present.

2. Speed and RPM: Determine the required speed and RPM (revolutions per minute) of the roller chain. High-speed applications may require special high-speed chains with improved heat dissipation and reduced centrifugal forces.

3. Environment: Assess the operating environment of the application. Consider factors such as temperature, humidity, dust, dirt, chemicals, and exposure to corrosive substances. Choose a roller chain with appropriate corrosion resistance, sealing, lubrication, or protective coatings based on the specific environmental conditions.

4. Length and Pitch: Determine the required length and pitch of the roller chain based on the distance between the sprockets and the desired positioning of the driven and driving components.

5. Maintenance Requirements: Consider the desired maintenance level for the application. Some roller chains may require regular lubrication, while others offer maintenance-free or self-lubricating options. Assess the availability of maintenance resources and the impact of downtime on the overall operation.

6. Compatibility: Ensure compatibility between the roller chain and the sprockets used in the application. The roller chain and sprockets should have matching pitch, tooth profile, and number of teeth to ensure proper engagement and smooth operation.

7. Certification and Standards: In certain industries, compliance with specific certifications or standards may be required. Consider whether the roller chain meets industry-specific requirements such as ISO, ANSI, or industry-specific regulations.

8. Cost and Availability: Evaluate the cost and availability of the roller chain, including factors such as initial purchase price, long-term maintenance costs, and the availability of spare parts or replacement chains.

By carefully considering these factors and consulting with experts or manufacturers, you can select the most suitable roller chain for your specific application, ensuring reliable and efficient power transmission.

Can roller chains be used for power transmission in pumps and compressors?

Yes, roller chains can be used for power transmission in pumps and compressors. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Power Transmission: Roller chains are widely used in various industries for transmitting power between rotating components. In pumps and compressors, roller chains can efficiently transfer power from the motor to the impeller or compressor wheel, enabling the pumping or compression action.

2. Versatility: Roller chains are available in different sizes, pitches, and configurations, making them suitable for various power transmission requirements. They can accommodate a wide range of power levels and speeds, allowing pumps and compressors to operate effectively in different applications and conditions.

3. Load Handling: Pumps and compressors typically involve dynamic loads due to the movement of fluids and gases. Roller chains are designed to handle these dynamic loads effectively. The multiple rollers and pins in the chain distribute the load evenly, minimizing stress concentrations and ensuring smooth power transmission.

4. Durability: Roller chains are known for their durability and resistance to wear. They are designed to withstand demanding operating conditions, including high speeds, fluctuating loads, and exposure to contaminants. Proper lubrication and maintenance further enhance their longevity and reliability in pump and compressor applications.

5. Easy Installation and Maintenance: Roller chains offer ease of installation and maintenance. They can be easily installed, adjusted, and tensioned to ensure proper alignment and operation. Routine maintenance tasks such as lubrication and inspection can help optimize chain performance and identify any potential issues.

It’s important to select the appropriate roller chain based on the specific requirements of the pump or compressor, considering factors such as power transmission capacity, speed, load characteristics, and environmental conditions. Regular inspection and maintenance are crucial to ensure optimal performance and to detect any signs of wear or damage that may require replacement or repair.

How do roller chains handle misalignment between sprockets?

Roller chains are designed to accommodate a certain degree of misalignment between sprockets. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Side-Bending Capability: One of the key features of roller chains is their side-bending capability. The chain links have some flexibility, allowing them to articulate and adapt to slight misalignments between the sprockets. This flexibility helps maintain proper engagement between the chain and the sprockets, even if they are not perfectly aligned.

2. Articulating Pins and Bushings: Roller chains consist of pins and bushings that connect the chain links. These pins and bushings allow for rotational movement and articulation, enabling the chain to adjust to the misalignment between the sprockets. This ensures that the chain remains engaged with the sprockets and continues to transmit power effectively.

3. Chain Tension Adjustment: Misalignment between sprockets can cause variations in chain tension along the length of the chain. Roller chains typically have provisions for adjusting the chain tension, allowing for compensation of any slack or tight spots caused by misalignment. Proper tension adjustment helps maintain the chain’s engagement with the sprockets and ensures smooth power transmission.

4. Chain Guides and Tensioners: In cases where misalignment is more pronounced or persistent, chain guides and tensioners can be used to help guide the chain and maintain proper alignment. These components provide additional support and control the lateral movement of the chain, minimizing the effects of misalignment.

While roller chains can handle a certain amount of misalignment, it is important to note that excessive or prolonged misalignment can lead to increased wear, premature fatigue, and reduced chain life. Therefore, it is recommended to minimize misalignment as much as possible and regularly inspect and maintain the alignment of the sprockets to ensure optimal performance and longevity of the roller chain.

How to choose a roller chain for a conveyor

When choosing a roller chain for your conveyor, the easiest way is to refer to the horsepower and RPM charts. The horsepower and rpm of the small drive sprocket will determine the size and number of teeth of the chain. Conveyor chains are available in a variety of options, including moving products horizontally, vertically, or around a bend radius. When choosing a conveyor chain, consider the purpose of the chain. For example, if you’re delivering products to customers’ doorsteps, you might choose chains that can move products up and down a hallway or warehouse.

Double pitch

Double pitch roller chains are a popular way to drive agricultural equipment. It has twice the pitch of a standard roller chain and is ideal for light-duty drives. Extended pitch increases performance at lower speeds, but requires fewer components per foot than standard single-pitch chains. Compared to single-pitch roller chains, double-pitch chainplates are longer and are suitable for lighter loads. Read on to learn more about double pitch chains and how they can improve your operation.
The most common type of conveyor chain is double pitch. It is used in the auto parts industry, as well as in the precision machinery industry. It is made from the same components as the standard drive roller chain, except it has longer side plates. Double pitch chains are often used on slow-moving conveyors to reduce the stress placed on them. Industries that commonly use double pitch conveyor chains include airport equipment manufacturers, lumber mills, and fruit packing plants.
RS series roller chains are manufactured from high-quality stainless steel. It has excellent chemical and abrasion resistance and is available in a variety of cord lengths. RS sprockets have over 30 teeth. They contain all the necessary connection links for easy installation. PEER Chain offers double pitch roller chain attachments including pre-stretched chains, sprockets, and other attachments.
Double pitch roller chains have several advantages over standard chains. Double pitch chains have double the pitch, making them ideal for conveying applications such as conveyors. In addition to that, it also provides ANSI-compliant styles. These chains also have free connection links. When shopping for a double pitch roller chain, be sure to choose the one that fits your requirements and budget. They will last longer and save you money in the long run.
Double pitch roller chains to ANSI standards feature oversized rollers. These chains are best suited for applications where the product is mounted on top of the chain. They are ideal for agricultural applications where cotton is on top of the drum. Also, this type of chain is used in light-duty conveyors and agricultural applications. You can find double pitch roller chains in a variety of sizes and styles. And, as long as you know what you want, you’ll be happy with the results.

Self-lubricating

Self-lubricating roller chains eliminate the need for manual relubrication, providing long-lasting operation and reducing maintenance costs. These chains are particularly popular in industries such as the food and beverage industry, textiles, printing, and sawmills. They can also replace standard roller chain drives and conveyor chains. Manufactured to the specific standard ISO R606, these chains are ideal replacements for conventional chains. PC chains are particularly beneficial for food and beverage production and packaging applications due to their anti-corrosion properties.
Self-lubricating roller chains meet ISO, ASME/ANSI, and DIN standards. They are interchangeable with standard chains of the same size and shape and can be used in a variety of industrial applications. Self-lubricating chains have special oil-impregnated sleeves to reduce maintenance time. These chains are also suitable for applications where cleanliness is an issue.
Self-lubricating roller chains are manufactured with unique RS attachments. Rather than a traditional roller chain with an external lubricating ring, this type of chain retains the lubricant within its bushings. During operation, the application generates heat, heating the lubricant, which flows out of the pin and bushing area. Therefore, CZPT roller chains are ideal for certain food conveying applications.
In addition to self-lubricating roller chains, carbon steel, stainless steel or nickel-plated steel are also available. Self-lubricating roller chains are available in different sizes depending on the application, including 0.375″ wide profile straight-chain, extended pin chain, and four-link. In addition, these chains are also available in ANSI and BS chain specifications.

Accumulation

Whether you need to move large or small loads, accumulating roller chains are a viable solution. This chain conveyor is designed with low back pressure to transport large and bulky items with minimal noise. Free-running rollers within the chain help create a smooth build-up surface. These chains are available in a variety of options, including accumulating rollers of different pitches.
The accumulation and release roller chain 14 includes an upper part 15 and a lower part 16. The upper part 15 rests in the upper subspace 28, while the lower part 16 rests on the top side 20 of the profile. As the upper belt 15 rolls around the accumulation roller chain 14, it aligns with the lower chain 16 to form a continuous receiving space. This arrangement allows the accumulation roller chain 14 to rest on the top surface of the support profile 11.
A cumulative roller chain consists of many individual parts. Each section of the chain has an elongated cylindrical shape and is connected to each other by hinged joints. Each chain section also has an accumulation and release roller associated therewith. Each roller protrudes from the upper side 20 and the lower side 21 of the chain portion. The accumulation rollers are movable about an axis 22 extending transversely to the longitudinal axis of the chain.
A feature of the stacking and releasing roller chain is its simplicity. The conveyor has a profiled section that is permanently divided into two cross-sectional spaces. The bottom space is closed from all sides. The upper space accommodates the conveyor line. The contoured portion includes an opening that guides the bottom strap. A shunt can also be inserted between the two sections. The accumulating roller chain system is a convenient and versatile way to move bulky items.
There are many different types of accumulating roller chains. Some chains have offset rollers for optimal load distribution. Others have protection to prevent machine wear. Some run without lubricant, which is a safety advantage. In addition to protection, cumulative chains can also provide protection. The side bow version of the accumulation and release roller chain with offset accumulation and release rollers is designed for conveyor systems with very small bend radii.

Without bushing

Bushless roller chains are the most common type of industrial chain. They are simple in design and require only regular maintenance. Regular maintenance includes lubricating, assessing wear, and replacing worn sprockets. For more information, please read the following information:
The outer chainplates and the inner chain plates are alternately arranged in pairs. The connecting pin extends through the hole in the inner link plate. The rollers thus positioned can be rotated on the connecting pins. Oil provided between the outer circumferential surfaces of each connecting pin serves to lubricate the chain. This system reduces noise and wears caused by collisions between inner chain plates and sprockets.
Compared to traditional roller chains, bushings roller chains have rollers around the bushing. These rollers are in rolling contact with the sprocket teeth, providing low friction and excellent wear resistance. To ensure smooth operation, bushings roller chains must be greased to prevent rust and keep the chain properly tensioned. Lubricated chains run smoother and last longer.
In a bushingless chain, the inner links are shaped like half bushings and ride on the rollers. The pins go through the outer plate and connect the inner links to the rollers. The outer plates overlap the inner links and open the pins. This system is also known as a heterochain. This type of chain is more common than traditional roller chains. If you are not sure which type of bushingless roller chain to choose, you may need to purchase an additional pair of inner chainplates.
Linerless roller chains may also include chain guides. In a bushingless roller chain, the outer and inner link plates conform to the surfaces of the guide rails. Thus, the large area of contact between the chain and the guide rail is eliminated, the friction loss is reduced, and the power transmission efficiency is improved. These properties make bushless roller chains more efficient and durable than traditional roller chains. It’s also less noisy. If you are looking for a chain with a lower noise level, a bushingless roller chain may be the right choice for you.
