How do I know my roller chain size?

Roller Chain Identification Most roller chain has the size stamped right into the side plates. You may see something like “40”, “C2080H” or “10B” stamped in, which the industry number that represents the chain size. Old chains will most likely need to be cleaned in order to see the size.

### What is the smallest size of roller chain?

# 25 Chain is an American standard size that is built to ANSI B29. 1 standards. In fact, this is the smallest ANSI chain size that is produced. This miniature chain is commonly referred to as 1/4″ pitch roller chain, which comes from the pin to pin measurement.

What size is #41 chain?

#41 Roller Chain Dimensions

Size Pitch (P) Overall Width (A)
41-1 0.50″ 0.539″

#### What size is a 40 chain?

1/2″
40 Roller chain made to ANSI b 29.1 is 1/2″ or 12.7 mm pitch. It is available in single strand 40-1 duplex 40-2 and triplex 40-3.

What size is 420 roller chain?

What Size Chain Do I Need?

Standard Roller Chain Specifications & Strengths
Chain Size Chain Pitch The Pin Diameter
#35 3/8″ 1/8″
#41 1/2″ 1/8″
#420 1/2″ 5/32″

## How do I know my chain size?

To determine the pitch (chain size), you’ll need to measure the distance between any three consecutive rivets, then divide the result by 2. The rivets are the small, round pegs/studs that hold the chain segments together. Measure from the first to the third, then divide that number in half to get your chain pitch.

What are the five parts of roller chain?

For starters, roller chain consists of 5 basic components: Pin, bushing, roller, pin link plate, and roller link plate. Each of these components are manufactured and assembled to precise tolerances and heat treated to optimize performance with regard to wear resistance, fatigue strength, and tensile strength.

### Is 40 41 and 420 chain the same?

#420 will have more strength than the #41 chain because the side plates will be taller. #40 will be the beefiest chain in this class. This will help with thicker sprockets since there is more room between the side plates. #41 will look just like the #420 chain, but will stand shorter.

How do I know my chain link size?

Chain Link Sizes: How to Measure Chain Link Sizes

1. Pitch is measured by finding the distance from the center of one pin to the center of the next pin in line.
2. Determine your side plate height and thickness by measuring both inside and outside the roller chain to ensure that you’re seeing a good average size.

#### What is the difference between .325 and 3/8 chain?

The three-eighths chain is a beefier saw and better suited to one that has more horsepower. It has larger teeth and a heavier duty chain, so it requires more horsepower to operate correctly. 325-inch chain for those saws between 40 and 60 cc.

Is 40 and 420 chain the same?

## What are the different sizes of roller chains?

Roller chain has been around for a long time and has evolved into a broad range of styles & sizes. The roller chain size charts below cover ANSI, Heavy Duty, Metric, Agricultural, Conveyor & Non-Standard chains.

How big is a double pitch chain chain?

For example, 60 double pitch conveyor series (1 1/2″) is designed C2060H. Rollers are the same diameter as the corresponding ANSI chain of 1/2 the pitch. Link plates are straight and unbeveled and the construction of the roller and pin link plates are identical to improve sliding wear properties.

### How big is a quad strand roller chain?

Quad strand roller chains are the heavy-duty option when you need to get some serious work done. If you need help measuring these larger chains accurately, give the professionals at PEER Chain a call for assistance.

Where can you find single strand roller chains?

You’ll find our single strand roller chains used in a variety of places such as the food industry or as conveyors. More robust than our single strand chains, these double strand roller chains feature solid rollers enhancing rotation on the bushing while reducing impact loads on the sprocket tooth during operation.
