This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Test the chain elongation at a portion and that is most

This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Check the chain elongation at a portion and that is most
commonly engaged with all the sprockets (portion most likely to get worn).
When the center from the pin of your chain for being measured reaches the arrow point, it signifies that the chain has become critically elongated. In this case, replace the chain.
Utilize the gage to test the put on elongation of one’s chain.
General terms for sprockets
Nominal quantity of sprockets
The nominal variety of a sprocket is the identical as the nominal variety of the corresponding chain. Such as, Chains such as 50, 50HK, and 50LD is usually engaged which has a sprocket 50. It can be followed by symbols and characters indicating the number of chain strands, the number of sprocket teeth, hub sort, tooth head hardening, etc.
Diameter of prepared hole and shaft hole finishing
A normal sprocket to get a single strand or double strand chain features a shaft hole ready at a diameter stated during the table of dimensions. Once you finish the shaft hole, machine it in reference for the outer diameter or root diameter.
Hardening of tooth heads
The teeth of the sprocket must be hard and wear resistant because they are impacted when engaged with the rollers from the chain and worn by sliding with all the rollers. When significant put on and big shocks are anticipated, sprocket.
Types, construction and materials
made of carbon steel or cast steel should really be applied and high-frequency hardening should really be performed.
The standard sprockets forty to 120 with a hub on only one side for single and double strand chains are induction-hardened even if the number of teeth is modest. Whether the product or service is induction hardened or not is shown within the tables of dimensions of respective sprockets for your reference. In addition, within the following cases, induction-harden the teeth in the sprocket.?The modest sprocket has 20 or less teeth and it is applied at 1/6 or much more on the greatest speed stated from the table of maximum kilowatt ratings.
The compact sprocket is made use of at a modify gear ratio of 4:1 or more.
The tiny sprocket is employed for any reduced velocity substantial load transmission as in situations of assortment based on the “Low-speed selection”.
Sprockets are used in conditions the place the teeth are heavily worn.
Sprockets are made use of under conditions in which there are actually frequent begins and stops or sudden regular or reverse rotations.
Standard cautions
For deciding on the number of teeth and pace ration in the sprocket, see “How to select suitable chain” . For cautions for installing a sprocket on a shaft and replacement timing, see “Installation adjustment maintenance” .
