These chains, produced to ANSI B29.3, have figure-eight style link plates. Their dimensions are similar to Standard Series chains with the exception of the pitch, which is twice that of the Standard Series. The increase in pitch means that only half the number of component parts are required per foot which can significantly lower the cost. Typical uses for these types of chains include light load drives commonly found in agriculture.
Produced to ANSI B29.4, these chains are used in conveyor applications when loads are low and speeds are moderate. They are similar to the Double-Pitch Power Transmission chains, but with link plates that have an oval contour, and can be produced with either standard or over-sized rollers. They are most often found working on conveyors of all shapes and sizes and can be supplied with one or more of our many attachments to carry or convey products.
