Roller chain may be the variety of chain most commonly utilized for transmis-sion of mechanical power on quite a few types of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, which include conveyors, printing presses, automobiles, motorcycles, and bicycles.
Roller chain sizes are determined by 4 main dimensions: pitch, within width of the roller hyperlink, roller diameter, and plate thickness. Pitch, the distance in inches between centers of adjacent ?exing joints, forms the proportional basis for the remaining dimensions. Chain size is designated from the pitch dimension, and chain length is expressed regarding pitch, or in feet and inches.
