This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Check the chain elongation at a portion that is most
commonly engaged with the sprockets (portion more than likely to be worn).

This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Check out the chain elongation at a portion which is most
usually engaged with the sprockets (portion more than likely to be worn).
When the center of the pin from the chain for being measured reaches the arrow level, it means that the chain has been critically elongated. In this case, substitute the chain.
Make use of the gage to verify the wear elongation of the chain.
Standard terms for sprockets
Nominal quantity of sprockets
The nominal variety of a sprocket will be the similar since the nominal amount of the corresponding chain. One example is, Chains this kind of as 50, 50HK, and 50LD might be engaged that has a sprocket 50. It is actually followed by symbols and characters indicating the number of chain strands, the quantity of sprocket teeth, hub form, tooth head hardening, etc.
Diameter of ready hole and shaft hole finishing
A conventional sprocket for any single strand or double strand chain has a shaft hole ready at a diameter stated inside the table of dimensions. Whenever you finish the shaft hole, machine it in reference to your outer diameter or root diameter.
Hardening of tooth heads
The teeth of the sprocket must be challenging and dress in resistant as they are impacted when engaged with the rollers of your chain and worn by sliding together with the rollers. When extreme put on and big shocks are anticipated, sprocket.
Varieties, building and materials
made from carbon steel or cast steel should be utilised and high-frequency hardening should really be conducted.
The conventional sprockets forty to 120 that has a hub on only one side for single and double strand chains are induction-hardened even if the amount of teeth is little. Regardless of whether the solution is induction hardened or not is shown while in the tables of dimensions of respective sprockets to your reference. On top of that, inside the following circumstances, induction-harden the teeth on the sprocket.?The small sprocket has twenty or less teeth and it is utilized at 1/6 or much more with the greatest pace stated within the table of maximum kilowatt ratings.
The small sprocket is used at a alter gear ratio of four:one or extra.
The modest sprocket is used for any low speed big load transmission as in cases of variety based on the “Low-speed selection”.
Sprockets are utilized in situations exactly where the teeth are heavily worn.
Sprockets are used below circumstances where you’ll find regular starts and stops or sudden normal or reverse rotations.
Standard cautions
For deciding on the number of teeth and pace ration of your sprocket, see “How to select right chain” . For cautions for installing a sprocket on the shaft and substitute timing, see “Installation adjustment maintenance” .
