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 Double 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 use S rollers engage with every other tooth. Sprockets will have an extended life as chains build relationships different teeth every time the rollers rotate (when actual number of tooth is odd).
Sprocket for Dual Pitch Chain
As proven in the sketch, chain rollers work with 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 lifestyle as less use and abrasion.
S roller type chain can 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 an extremely great price! 2042A16 dual pitch sprockets are produced specifically for C2042 dual pitch roller chain, possess 16 teeth, and fully meet all ANSI Specifications. Additionally, this sprocket has a stock bore but we can supply the sprocket already bored out to almost any requested bore size. A thing that sets this 2042A16 sprocket apart from others is that it is Black Oxide Finished, warmth treated, and is produced using a high quality steel. Performing this with a sprocket helps it be much more durable, perform to its best capabilities, and last much longer compared to the competition. Because of our sourcing experts, companions, and engineers, these sprockets are usually in share and at a really great price. For prices and availability please e mail us and we’ll be happy to assist you.
Our in-stock standard double pitch sprockets are manufactured out of SAE-1045 case hardened steel with extra-hardened teeth and coated with black oxide. These sprockets are really durable, high-strength, and produced to high precision tolerances. Stock double pitch sprockets include standard roller and carrier roller design, single duty sprockets are created to order and typically take from a few business days to some weeks to manufacture based upon our factory loads and sprocket specifics.
Standard Roller Type
Standard roller type sprockets will be the same outside diameter and width as the single-pitch equivalent simply with a different tooth profile to allow appropriate seating of the chain. On actually tooth-counts, these sprockets just build relationships the chain on 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 course increases the sprocket life.
Carrier Roller Type
Carrier roller type dual pitch sprockets are cut with space cutters to permit the carrier roller to properly seat and engage with each tooth. These sprockets could have the same diameter as the ANSI single-pitch comparative.
Single Duty Type
One duty sprockets are manufactured to where every tooth gets engaged evenly on each revolution. This sprocket type has become obsolete in most applications but is still available.
When using double pitch roller chain it really is highly recommended if not required to use a double pitch sprocket. This is because double pitch sprockets are manufactured 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 may be the standard tooth profile and the photo on the right is the special dual pitch sprocket profile. As you can plainly see above, the double pitch sprockets tooth profile is slightly deeper and cut differently to totally accept the dual pitch chain roller. If using a standard sprocket, failing to engage will lead to chain jumping along with excessive wear. Something important to note is usually 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 standard roller chain sprocket. This guideline does not apply to carrier roller design chains which where in fact the roller diameter exceeds the sidebar elevation, these chain sizes consist of C2042, C2052, C2062, C2062H, C2082H, C2102H, C2122H, and C2162H.
