Metric Sprockets Overview
TL Taper sprockets Bushed Metric Sprockets
TL Sprockets are stocked in a wide variety of sizes including ISO 06B, 08B, 10B, 12B, 16B and 20B chain sizes (3/8 to 1-1/4” pitch) for single, dual and triple chain. These install with standard TL tapered bushings from 1008 thru 5050 (we.e., thru a 5” or 125mm shaft diameter). TL Sprockets can be found in an array of diameters to accommodate various software speeds. The popular sizes are stocked with hardened tooth. The C45 materials, standard steel sprockets, allows for induction hardening of the teeth. So all could be high temperature treated Hardened Tooth on demand. The TL Taper Bushed Sprocket offers a accurate concentric fit to the shaft. As the TL bushing screws are tightened, the bushing compresses around the shaft securely. Standard hex wrenches will be the only tool necessary for set up or removal. Once the bushing installation screws are loosened and eliminated, the screw is re-used and threaded into the bushing removal hole. Tightening the removal screw will lightly loosen the sprocket. PTI stocks both metric and ” bore TL bushings, a standard global design, which is why the TL sprocket is so versatile. Simple installation, concentric shaft match, ideal for higher speeds and weighty loads plus a cost-effective cost, make this the favorite choice for new styles and replacement requirements. TL sprockets are usually less expensive than custom or completed bored sprockets. Hub Type Metric Sprockets Hub Type Metric Sprockets can be found with a minimum basic bore (pilot bore) plus some share completed bore sizes. Any shaft size is possible with our custom bore and keyway capacity. Sprockets with hubs are usually suited to the shaft as a clearance suit. They are held set up with two established screws and a keyway. Clearance fits are popular for light loads and slower speeds. A press suit (or shrink match to the shaft) is generally favored for higher speeds or heavier loads as they match to the shaft more safely than a clearance fit sprocket. With respect to the clearance of the shaft match, sprockets may work somewhat on the shaft leading to feasible fretting or shaft put on. All regular hub sprockets can be found with hardened the teeth from stock or on demand. Press fits usually require the sprocket to be heated for installation to increase the bore. As a heated sprocket cools, it shrinks, conforming to the shaft with a good grip. A established screw secures the key. The TL Taper Bushed Sprocket will function like the press match sprocket and generally simpler to install. Plate Type Metric Sprockets Plate Sprockets for solitary, double or triple strand chain are an economical choice allowing for immediate mounting to the customers’ hub or shaft. They are most frequently regarded as for sprockets above 40 teeth and are available in a wide range of diameters. Plate type sprockets could be welded or bolted right to the users’ hub keeping apparatus compact and light weight. They can be purchased in single, dual and triple tooth configurations aswell. Weld on Hubs A Weld-On-Hub is often used to simplify installation, especially huge diameter sprockets. PTI stocks regular TL Weld-OnHub sizes. The Weld-On-Hub uses the typical TL bushings as perform most of the other standard drive elements. TL Bushings are stocked in both metric and in . bores. TL Bushings for Weld-On-Hubs or TL Bushed Sprockets TL Taper Bushings for Weld-OnHubs and sprockets are stocked from 1008 thru 5050 sizes covering 5” or 125mm shaft sizes. TL Bushings are ideal for replacements and a contemporary alternative for upgrading clearance fit and press fit sprockets. TL Bushings are found in a wide variety of additional European and American standard drive products. Stainless Steel Metric Sprockets STAINLESS (AISI 304L) Metric Sprockets provide corrosion resistance and allow wash-down capability. These hub type sprockets can be given a completed bore and keyway. Stainless Sprockets can’t be hardened. PTI stocks sizes from ISO 06B thru 16B (3/8” -1” pitch) and from 12 to 25 & 30 the teeth. Larger sizes on demand. TL Bushed version also on request. Metric Idler and Double-One Sprockets Metric Idler Sprockets are plate sprockets with a ball bearing for installation. These sprockets generally provide tension for the chain drive and can be utilized within a tension arm assembly or individually mounted to put the drive. Share sizes are for sale to ISO 05B thru 20B metric chain sizes. Double-Single Sprockets, well-known on conveyors, allow 2 single chains on a single sprocket to regulate pairs of rolls or drive devices that must index. Customized Metric or ANSI Sprockets Custom made sprockets including huge diameter steel or cast iron products for single, duplex or triple strand chain can be made to purchase. PTI typically continues some stock in our European warehouse, so delivery could be rather quick. Other custom sprockets sizes for Metric conveyor chain or ANSI chain are also possible. Drawings are preferred to insure requirements are obvious. All are possible with customized finished bore.
