Idler Sprockets: Ball Bearing Idler Sprockets have sealed ball bearings with extended inner competition and setscrews for securing to the shaft.
Projection From Centerline – Because of dimensional variation among bearing manufacturers this dimension can vary greatly slightly when different brands of bearings are used. Should you have a critical application please demand specific dimensions.
Inner Race projection provides 2 set screws on long side to secure bearing to shaft.

Accurately machined, medium carbon steel sprockets and precision ground ball bearings are assembled to supply a heavy duty idler for the the majority of severe conditions. The bearings are pre-lubricated and sealed to keep grease and exclude dirt and moisture. They aren’t re-lubricatable. The extended inner race with setscrew enables fastening to a pin or shaft without collars or spacing devices. In addition, it provides clearance for the chain when bolting the sprocket directly to a body member or tensioning device. A small sprocket for close quarters and a larger one for heavier services is offered in each pitch. If sizes apart from those listed are necessary, please inquire for quotation.
