This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Check the chain elongation at a portion that’s most
frequently engaged with the sprockets (portion almost certainly to be worn).

This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Verify the chain elongation at a portion that’s most
regularly engaged together with the sprockets (portion more than likely to be worn).
Once the center of the pin of your chain to get measured reaches the arrow point, it implies that the chain is critically elongated. In this case, exchange the chain.
Use the gage to examine the put on elongation of your chain.
General terms for sprockets
Nominal variety of sprockets
The nominal number of a sprocket is the exact same as the nominal variety of the corresponding chain. Such as, Chains this kind of as 50, 50HK, and 50LD is usually engaged which has a sprocket 50. It really is followed by symbols and characters indicating the amount of chain strands, the quantity of sprocket teeth, hub kind, tooth head hardening, and so on.
Diameter of ready hole and shaft hole finishing
A typical sprocket for any single strand or double strand chain includes 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 of the chain and worn by sliding with the rollers. When extreme dress in and huge shocks are anticipated, sprocket.
Varieties, development and materials
made from carbon steel or cast steel should really be utilized and high-frequency hardening should really be performed.
The typical sprockets 40 to 120 that has a hub on just one side for single and double strand chains are induction-hardened whether or not the number of teeth is compact. Whether or not the products is induction hardened or not is shown within the tables of dimensions of respective sprockets for your reference. In addition, from the following cases, induction-harden the teeth from the sprocket.?The little sprocket has 20 or significantly less teeth and it is utilized at 1/6 or a lot more of your maximum pace stated while in the table of optimum kilowatt ratings.
The small sprocket is made use of at a transform gear ratio of four:1 or additional.
The compact sprocket is made use of for a very low velocity large load transmission as in scenarios of assortment based upon the “Low-speed selection”.
Sprockets are used in conditions in which the teeth are heavily worn.
Sprockets are employed under disorders exactly where there are regular starts and stops or sudden typical or reverse rotations.
General cautions
For selecting the quantity of teeth and velocity ration from the sprocket, see “How to select right chain” . For cautions for installing a sprocket on the shaft and replacement timing, see “Installation adjustment maintenance” .
