Standard Double Pitch Conveyor Chains

Double-Pitch Conveyor Chains are roller chains that have greater pitch than normal chains. These chains are commonly employed in conveying and are available in various designs. They could be bent or straight sides, and a lot come with other attributes. They can also be customized. Double pitch conveyor chains are typically employed in construction, agriculture or road building equipment. They are also used in the manufacture of textiles and packaging machines.

Description

Standard Double Pitch Conveyor Chains

Double-pitch chains are built on single-pitch chains that are constructed following ISO 606; except for the pitch, they comply with the same standards regarding their dimensions. In contrast to the short pitch chains made according in accordance with standard ISO 606, these chains are designed to be used in environments where the needs for the speed of transmission and energy are less. The primary difference is those plates on double-pitch chains – as their name implies, are twice as long as the plates used in regular chains. chains. In addition to these chains, the chain range made in accordance with standard ISO 606 American Standard includes versions with regular plate thickness, or thicker plates as well as versions that have larger or smaller rollers. Two-pitch hollow pin chains are typically only available that have straight plates, as an encasement or roller chain. One of the primary advantages of this type is that the higher pitch permits transport rollers to be used and, in a variety of applications, drastically reduces friction and forces inside the chain.

Key Features and Characteristics of Standard Double Pitch Conveyor Chains:

Standard double-pitch conveyor chains are a type of roller chain commonly used in industrial conveyor systems. They are characterized by having a larger pitch (the distance between each roller) than standard roller chains. The double-pitch design allows for longer conveyor spans, reduced cost, and lower horsepower requirements.

Here are some key features and characteristics of standard double-pitch conveyor chains:

  1. Pitch: Double-pitch chains have a pitch that is twice the size of standard roller chains. The pitch is defined as the distance between the centers of adjacent rollers.
  2. Roller Size: The rollers on double-pitch chains are typically larger than those on standard chains, allowing for increased load capacity and better performance in conveying applications.
  3. Attachment Options: Double-pitch chains often come with a variety of attachment options, such as extended pins, bent or straight attachments, or custom attachments. These attachments can be used for carrying products, attaching accessories, or engaging with other components of the conveyor system.
  4. Material and Coating: Double-pitch chains are commonly made from carbon steel, stainless steel, or plastic materials depending on the application requirements. They can also be coated or treated with various surface finishes to enhance corrosion resistance or reduce friction.
  5. Sprockets: Double-pitch chains require specially designed sprockets to match the larger pitch. These sprockets typically have teeth that are twice the size of standard roller chain sprockets. It’s essential to ensure proper alignment and engagement between the chain and sprockets for optimal performance and longevity.

When selecting a double-pitch conveyor chain, it’s crucial to consider factors such as load capacity, speed, environment, and application-specific requirements. Consulting with chain manufacturers or industry experts can help determine the most suitable chain for a particular conveyor system.
