This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Verify the chain elongation at a portion that’s most

This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Check out the chain elongation at a portion that’s most
regularly engaged together with the sprockets (portion more than likely to become worn).
Once the center from the pin from the chain to be measured reaches the arrow stage, it implies that the chain has become critically elongated. In this case, replace the chain.
Make use of the gage to check out the put on elongation of your chain.
Common terms for sprockets
Nominal variety of sprockets
The nominal number of a sprocket may be the exact same as the nominal amount of the corresponding chain. Such as, Chains this kind of as 50, 50HK, and 50LD is usually engaged with a sprocket 50. It can be followed by symbols and characters indicating the amount of chain strands, the quantity of sprocket teeth, hub sort, tooth head hardening, and so on.
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 within the table of dimensions. If you finish the shaft hole, machine it in reference for the outer diameter or root diameter.
Hardening of tooth heads
The teeth of a sprocket need to be challenging and wear resistant because they are impacted when engaged together with the rollers from the chain and worn by sliding using the rollers. When significant wear and substantial shocks are anticipated, sprocket.
Sorts, construction and components
made from carbon steel or cast steel should really be utilised and high-frequency hardening should really be carried out.
The typical sprockets 40 to 120 that has a hub on only one side for single and double strand chains are induction-hardened whether or not the number of teeth is little. No matter whether the product is induction hardened or not is proven inside the tables of dimensions of respective sprockets for your reference. In addition, during the following cases, induction-harden the teeth on the sprocket.?The little sprocket has 20 or significantly less teeth and it is employed at 1/6 or a lot more of the optimum pace stated from the table of highest kilowatt ratings.
The small sprocket is utilized at a alter gear ratio of 4:1 or additional.
The compact sprocket is used to get a very low velocity big load transmission as in instances of choice according to the “Low-speed selection”.
Sprockets are utilized in conditions the place the teeth are heavily worn.
Sprockets are employed under circumstances in which there are frequent begins and stops or sudden typical or reverse rotations.
General cautions
For choosing the quantity of teeth and velocity ration in the sprocket, see “How to pick right chain” . For cautions for installing a sprocket on the shaft and replacement timing, see “Installation adjustment maintenance” .
