Fully Meets ANSI Standards
Manufactured Out Of SAE 1045 Steel
Black Oxide Treated
Induction Hardened Teeth
High Quality Sprocket
Double Pitch Chain Sprockets
Available for Dual Pitch Chain with S or R rollers.
We provide a line-up for RS2040 – RF2160 with S rollers, and RF2040 – RF2100 with R rollers.
Chains that make use of S rollers engage with every other tooth. Sprockets could have an extended life as chains engage with different teeth every time the rollers rotate (when actual number of the teeth 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 extension of sprocket life as less wear and abrasion.
S roller type chain can work well with regular roller chain sprocket with more than 30 teeth.
This 2042A16 sprocket is durable, exceeds in quality, and will be offering an extended working life at an extremely great price! 2042A16 double pitch sprockets are produced specifically for C2042 double pitch roller chain, have 16 teeth, and completely meet all ANSI Specifications. Additionally, this sprocket includes a share bore but we are able to supply the sprocket already bored out to nearly every requested bore size. A thing that sets this 2042A16 sprocket aside from others is that it is Black Oxide Finished, heat treated, and is produced using a top quality steel. Doing this with a sprocket makes it much more durable, perform to its greatest capabilities, and last much longer compared to the competition. Thanks to our sourcing experts, partners, and engineers, these sprockets are usually in share and at a really great price. For pricing and availability please e mail us and we will be happy to assist you.
Our in-stock standard double pitch sprockets are manufactured out of SAE-1045 case hardened metal 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, solitary duty sprockets are made to order and typically take from a few business days to a few weeks to manufacture based upon our factory loads and sprocket specifics.
Standard Roller Type
Regular roller type sprockets will be the same outside diameter and width as the single-pitch equivalent simply with a different tooth profile to permit appropriate seating of the chain. On even tooth-counts, these sprockets only build relationships the chain on every other tooth because there are two teeth per pitch. On odd tooth counts, any given tooth is engaged just on every other revolution which of training course escalates the sprocket life.
Carrier Roller Type
Carrier roller type dual pitch sprockets are cut with space cutters to permit the carrier roller to properly chair and engage with each tooth. These sprockets will have the same diameter as the ANSI single-pitch equivalent.
Single Duty Type
One duty sprockets are produced to where every tooth gets engaged evenly on each revolution. This sprocket type is becoming obsolete generally in most applications but continues to be available.
When using dual pitch roller chain it is highly recommended if not required to use a dual pitch sprocket. It is because dual pitch sprockets are produced with a particular tooth profile that allows for the roller to properly seat and engage with one’s teeth of the sprocket. The above photo on the left is the regular tooth profile and the picture on the right may be the special double pitch sprocket profile. As you can see above, the dual pitch sprockets tooth profile is somewhat deeper and cut differently to totally accept the double pitch chain roller. If utilizing a standard sprocket, failing to engage will lead to chain jumping in addition to excessive wear. Something vital that you note can be that with chain sizes C2040, C2050, C2060, C2060H, C2080H, C2100H, C2120H, and C2160H when the tooth count can be 31 or more you can use a typical roller chain sprocket. This rule does not apply to carrier roller design chains which where the roller diameter exceeds the sidebar elevation, these chain sizes include C2042, C2052, C2062, C2062H, C2082H, C2102H, C2122H, and C2162H.
