Metric Sprockets Overview
TL Taper Bushed Metric Sprockets
TL Sprockets are stocked in a wide selection of sizes which includes ISO 06B, 08B, 10B, 12B, 16B and 20B chain sizes (3/8 to 1-1/4” pitch) for single, dual and triple chain. These mount with standard TL tapered bushings from 1008 thru 5050 (i.e., thru a 5” or 125mm shaft diameter). TL Sprockets can be found in a wide range of diameters to support various program speeds. The more popular sizes are stocked with hardened teeth. The C45 material, standard steel sprockets, permits induction hardening of tooth. So all could be temperature treated Hardened Tooth on ask for. The TL Taper Bushed Sprocket offers a accurate concentric suit to the shaft. As the TL bushing screws are tightened, the bushing compresses around the shaft securely. Standard hex wrenches are the only tool necessary for set up or removal. After the bushing mounting screws are loosened and taken out, the screw is definitely re-used and threaded into the bushing removal hole. Tightening the removal screw will gently loosen the sprocket. PTI stocks both metric and ” bore TL bushings, a standard global design, which explains why the TL sprocket is indeed versatile. Simple installation, concentric shaft suit, ideal for higher speeds and weighty loads plus a cost-effective cost, make this the popular choice for new styles and replacement needs. TL sprockets are generally less expensive than customized or finished bored sprockets. Hub Type Metric Sprockets Hub Type Metric Sprockets can be found with a minimum simple bore (pilot bore) plus some share completed bore sizes. Any shaft size can be done with our customized bore and keyway capacity. Sprockets with hubs are usually fitted to the shaft as a clearance suit. They are held in place with two set screws and a keyway. Clearance fits are popular for light loads and sluggish speeds. A press suit (or shrink suit to the shaft) is usually preferred for higher speeds or heavier loads as they suit to the shaft more securely than a clearance fit sprocket. Based on the clearance of the shaft suit, sprockets may work slightly on the shaft causing feasible fretting or shaft put on. All regular hub sprockets can be found with hardened the teeth from share or on demand. Press fits usually need the sprocket to become heated for set up to expand the bore. As a heated sprocket cools, it shrinks, conforming to the shaft with a good grip. A arranged screw secures the main element. The TL Taper Bushed Sprocket will function just like the press suit sprocket and generally simpler to install. Plate Type Metric Sprockets Plate Sprockets for single, dual or triple strand chain are an economical choice allowing for direct mounting to the customers’ hub or shaft. They are most regularly considered for sprockets above 40 teeth and are available in an array of diameters. Plate type sprockets can be welded or bolted directly to the users’ hub keeping apparatus compact and light-weight. They can be purchased in single, double and triple tooth configurations aswell. Weld on Hubs A Weld-On-Hub is often used to simplify installation, especially huge diameter sprockets. PTI stocks regular TL Weld-OnHub sizes. The Weld-On-Hub uses the typical TL bushings as perform most of the other standard drive elements. TL Bushings are stocked in both metric and ” bores. TL Bushings for Weld-On-Hubs or TL Bushed Sprockets TL Taper Bushings for Weld-OnHubs and sprockets are stocked from 1008 thru 5050 sizes covering 5” or 125mm shaft sizes. TL Bushings are well suited for replacements and a contemporary solution for upgrading clearance match and press suit sprockets. TL Bushings are used in a multitude of additional European and American regular drive products. STAINLESS Metric Sprockets Stainless Steel (AISI 304L) Metric Sprockets provide corrosion resistance and allow wash-down ability. These hub type sprockets could be given a completed bore and keyway. Stainless Sprockets cannot be hardened. PTI stocks sizes from ISO 06B thru 16B (3/8” -1” pitch) and from 12 to 25 & 30 tooth. Larger sizes on ask for. TL Bushed edition also on ask for. Metric Idler and Double-Solitary Sprockets Metric Idler Sprockets are plate sprockets with a ball bearing for mounting. These sprockets generally provide tension for the chain drive and can be used within a tension arm assembly or individually mounted to put the drive. Stock sizes are for sale to ISO 05B thru 20B metric chain sizes. Double-Single Sprockets, well-known on conveyors, allow 2 single chains about the same sprocket to control pairs of rolls or drive models that must index. Custom Metric or ANSI Sprockets Custom sprockets including huge diameter metal or cast iron products for solitary, duplex or triple strand chain can be made to order. PTI typically will keep some stock in our European warehouse, so delivery could be rather quick. Additional custom sprockets sizes for Metric conveyor chain or ANSI chain are also possible. Drawings are preferred to insure requirements are obvious. All are possible with customized finished bore.
