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.

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 CZPT 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 CZPT 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):

Pitch (inches) Pitch expressed
in eighths

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.

What are the temperature limits for heavy-duty chains in extreme environments?

Heavy-duty chains are designed to perform well in a wide range of temperatures, but their temperature limits in extreme environments depend on the materials they are made from and the specific application.

Generally, heavy-duty chains can handle temperatures ranging from -20°C to 200°C (-4°F to 392°F) in standard operating conditions. However, in extreme environments, such as foundries, steel mills, or extremely cold regions, special high-temperature or low-temperature chains may be required.

For high-temperature applications, heavy-duty chains made from heat-resistant materials, such as alloy steels or stainless steels, can withstand temperatures above 200°C (392°F) without losing their structural integrity.

On the other hand, in extremely cold environments, heavy-duty chains made from low-temperature materials, like specific grades of carbon steel or nickel-plated chains, can maintain their strength and flexibility at temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F) and even lower.

When operating heavy-duty chains in extreme environments, it is essential to consider factors such as thermal expansion, contraction, and possible lubrication challenges. Adequate lubrication is crucial to ensure smooth operation and to protect the chains from wear and corrosion caused by temperature variations.

In critical applications with extreme temperature conditions, consulting with chain manufacturers or industry experts can help determine the most suitable heavy-duty chain materials and configurations for the specific environment to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

Diverse types of drive chains

There are a lot of different varieties of generate chains. You need to be ready to differentiate among roller chains, solid rivetless chains, double chains, flat-prime chains, and helical chains by the phrases employed. This write-up will provide details on the different varieties of chains. Then, you can pick the appropriate 1 according to your wants. If you haven’t bought a chain nevertheless, go through this write-up to get commenced. It will also supply information on the professionals and disadvantages of each kind.
chain

roller chain

There are a number of variances between push chains and roller chains, but in essence, the two are functionally equivalent. The selection of which type to use is dependent mostly on the variety of atmosphere it will be uncovered to. Whilst roller chains are ideal for cleanse indoor environments, they are not extremely forgiving when it comes to rubbing in opposition to the rails. Following are the main differences among a push chain and a roller chain. Using the appropriate push chain is essential for a sleek and efficient running machine.
Roller chain travel chains arrive in many different weights and tensile strengths. For light-weight-responsibility programs, use a more compact pitch chain. For large-duty apps, use larger pitch chains. The design simplicity of these chains helps make them excellent for a assortment of applications. Whilst they are fantastic for a selection of programs, the durability of these chains makes them excellent for a assortment of programs. Some of the primary makes use of of roller chain travel chains are listed underneath.
When changing the generate chain, be confident to follow the protection recommendations. The most critical thing to bear in mind is not to location the chain on a filthy ground as it might lead to extend or hurt. Soon after getting rid of the chain from the sprocket, apply the measured load specified by ANSI to it. If the load exceeds this benefit, the chain may bend. A appropriate load for measuring a generate chain must be at minimum six backlinks.
Whilst roller chains are typically created of carbon metal, some are manufactured of stainless metal and are utilized in foods processing equipment. In these environments, the chain might be created of stainless steel for lubrication. Brass and nylon are also at times utilised to meet up with these requirements. Regardless of the application, nevertheless, deciding on the proper push chain is critical to the success of a roller chain equipment. It is critical to sustain the appropriate equilibrium in between the roller chain and the machine.
To properly use a roller chain, 1st determine the size of the sprocket utilised for the push. The measurement of the chain need to be smaller than the smallest sprocket to stop tooth interference and provide adequate winding on the smaller sprocket. A great practice is to decide on a travel chain with a centre distance of thirty to fifty occasions the chain pitch. The longest attainable center-to-centre length is about 80 moments the chain pitch but is not advised for higher-pace programs.

Fall cast rivetless chain

Fall-forged rivetless travel chains are made of fall-forged steel components. Their proportions are suited for toughness and lightweight. Solid rivetless chains are generally divided into a few varieties. Each and every of these sorts has its possess set of important technical specs. Key subjects consist of minimum supreme tensile toughness, chain duration tolerances, and website link proportions. Read on to understand more about each and every kind and its employs.
One of the principal functions of forged rivetless chains is that, even with their fairly low value, they are designed to be quite sturdy. The quality of a solid chain relies upon on the construction and design of the chain. The manufacturer of this kind of push chain is CZPT, which has a big inventory of these chains. The chain is evidence tested following assembly and comes with a two-year components alternative warranty.
Cast rivetless chains are available in a range of pitch dimensions and toughness grades. They are produced of forged manganese or alloy metal and have an average toughness of 24,000 to 300,000 lbs .. These chains are appropriate for automotive, conveyor, and material handling as nicely as meat packaging, sugar processing, and metal mill programs. They are also commonly used in conveying systems. To make sure high quality and efficiency, makers supply a selection of solid chains.
CZPT delivers forged CZPT travel chains for tiredness-cost-free operation. The chain consists of a solid one particular-piece solid generate pawl for the best possible sturdiness. Chains are available in Determine 8 and in D-form designs. For far more data, make sure you speak to CZPT straight. Personalized Drop-Cast rivetless travel chains can be ordered. Producers also supply customized chains for distinct software needs.

double chain

Duplex drive chains have two sets of rollers rather of 1, making 2 times the energy. Double chain roller chains have pins and roller bearings, although triple chain chains have an additional row of plates to accommodate the a few sprockets. They are typically interchangeable with each other. They are available for US, United kingdom, and ISO standards. They are produced of carbon steel, stainless steel, and nickel or nickel-plated.
chain

flat top chain

Flat-top generate chains are perfect for curved or straight tracks and come in a lot of distinct sorts and thicknesses. These chains are hugely resistant to wear and are generally manufactured of steel, stainless metal, or plastic. CZPT manufactures particular brands of flat-best chains with high dress in resistance and excellent sounds reduction. In addition to currently being versatile, flat-best chains can be used in a variety of industrial purposes.
There are two major kinds of CZPT chains: solid top or raised rib. One particular piece is shaped from a single unit hyperlink and the other has roller foundation links for included strength. The two-piece chain brings together flat tabletop links and a roller base chain for additional energy. These chains are accessible in widths up to 20 feet and are available in a selection of widths. These chains are obtainable in stainless steel, solid iron, or plastic.
The hinge pin is an additional important element of the flat prime chain technique. Assistance chain plate to make sure sleek conveying. The hinges are obtainable in single hinge pin and double hinge pin variations. Standard hinge pins are designed for straight, slender-width chainplates double hinge pins are created for for a longer time, heavier goods. The hinge pins also appear in many diverse resources, which includes aluminum and galvanized metal. This allows for customization primarily based on device style, operating situations, and push method.
No matter whether your flat-top chain conveyor system is huge or modest, a large-quality flat-top chain will get the work completed. With their low maintenance and low upkeep layout, these chains are easy to clean and maintain. They can accommodate workpiece pallets of a variety of sizes, and their flexibility tends to make them ideal for a lot of various programs. They can also be extremely customized for various industries. So if you need to have an sector-particular conveyor, then a flat-leading push chain is the way to go.
