Fully Meets ANSI Standards
Manufactured Away Of SAE 1045 Steel
Black Oxide Treated
Induction Hardened Teeth
High Quality Sprocket
Double Pitch Chain Sprockets
Available for Dual Pitch Chain with S or R rollers.
We offer a line-up for RS2040 – RF2160 with S rollers, and RF2040 – RF2100 with R rollers.
Chains that make use of S rollers engage with every other tooth. Sprockets will have a longer life as chains build relationships different teeth each time the rollers rotate (when actual number of teeth is odd).
Sprocket for Double Pitch Chain
As demonstrated in the sketch, chain rollers use different teeth on each time of revolution when each roller skip one tooth and sprocket has odd number of teeth. This mechanism allows expansion of sprocket life as less put on and abrasion.
S roller type chain could work well with standard roller chain sprocket with more than 30 teeth.
This 2042A16 sprocket is durable, exceeds in quality, and offers an extended working life at a really great price! 2042A16 double pitch sprockets are produced specifically for C2042 double pitch roller chain, have 16 teeth, and completely meet all ANSI Specifications. Additionally, this sprocket has a share bore but we can supply the sprocket already bored out to nearly every requested bore size. A thing that sets this 2042A16 sprocket apart from others is that it’s Black Oxide Finished, high temperature treated, and is produced using a high quality steel. Carrying out this with a sprocket makes it much more long lasting, perform to its best capabilities, and last a lot longer compared to the competition. Because of our sourcing experts, companions, and engineers, these sprockets are usually in share and at an extremely great price. For pricing and availability please contact us and we’ll be happy to help you.
Our in-stock standard dual pitch sprockets are produced out of SAE-1045 case hardened metal with extra-hardened teeth and coated with dark oxide. These sprockets are extremely durable, high-strength, and produced to high precision tolerances. Stock dual pitch sprockets include regular roller and carrier roller design, one duty sprockets are created to order and typically take from a few business days to a few weeks to manufacture based on our factory loads and sprocket specifics.
Standard Roller Type
Standard roller type sprockets are the same outdoors diameter and width as the single-pitch equivalent just with a different tooth profile to allow correct seating of the chain. On also tooth-counts, these sprockets just engage with the chain on almost every other tooth because there are two tooth per pitch. On odd tooth counts, any provided tooth is engaged just on almost every other revolution which of training course escalates the sprocket life.
Carrier Roller Type
Carrier roller type dual pitch sprockets are cut with space cutters to allow the carrier roller to properly chair and build relationships each tooth. These sprockets could have the same diameter as the ANSI single-pitch equivalent.
Single Duty Type
Single duty sprockets are produced to where every single tooth gets engaged evenly on every revolution. This sprocket type has become obsolete generally in most applications but continues to be available.
When using double pitch roller chain it is highly recommended if not necessary to use a dual pitch sprocket. The reason being double pitch sprockets are produced with a particular tooth profile that allows for the roller to correctly seat and build relationships the teeth of the sprocket. The above photo on the left is the standard tooth profile and the photo on the right is the special double pitch sprocket profile. As you can see above, the double pitch sprockets tooth profile can be somewhat deeper and cut differently to totally accept the double pitch chain roller. If using a standard sprocket, failure to engage will result in chain jumping along with excessive wear. Something vital that you note can be that with chain sizes C2040, C2050, C2060, C2060H, C2080H, C2100H, C2120H, and C2160H when the tooth count is definitely 31 or more you can use a typical roller chain sprocket. This rule does not apply to carrier roller style chains which where in fact the roller diameter exceeds the sidebar height, these chain sizes include C2042, C2052, C2062, C2062H, C2082H, C2102H, C2122H, and C2162H.
