What is the difference between a double-pitch chain and a single-pitch chain?
1. The accessories for single-pitch Conveyor Chains are mainly installed on A series chains, which derive conveyor chains with a pitch of 12.7-50.8 and an "eight"-shaped chain plate. The chain uses rollers to support rolling on the track. Due to the small diameter of the rollers, the load-bearing capacity and transmission efficiency are not as good as the large rollers, so it is only suitable for small conveyors with light load and short conveying distance. However, the conveying speed can be higher, the beat precision of conveying is better, and the overall structure is relatively compact.
2. Double-pitch chains and sprockets for transmission and conveying are suitable for general mechanical transmission or double-pitch chains for conveying, with a pitch of 25.4-76.2mm. The double-pitch chain is a light chain derived from doubling the pitch specified by the short-pitch chain. As a conveyor chain, it has three characteristics in structure than a Transmission Chain: (1) The shape of the chain piece is not a figure 8 but it is straight (2) The end of the chain plate is fan-shaped, not a semicircle (3) The roller is enlarged The large roller set has high load carrying capacity and transmission efficiency.
