ROLLER CHAIN

Roller chain or bush roller chain is the type of chain drive most commonly used for transmission of mechanical power on many kinds of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, including conveyors, wire- and tube-drawing machines, printing presses, cars, motorcycles, and bicycles. It consists of a series of short cylindrical rollers held together by side links. It is driven by a toothed wheel called a sprocket. It is a simple, reliable, and efficient means of power transmission.

CHAIN STRENGTH

The most common measure of roller chain’s strength is tensile strength. Tensile strength represents how much load a chain can withstand under a one-time load before breaking. Just as important as tensile strength is a chain’s fatigue strength. The critical factors in a chain’s fatigue strength is the quality of steel used to manufacture the chain, the heat treatment of the chain components, the quality of the pitch hole fabrication of the linkplates, and the type of shot plus the intensity of shot peen coverage on the linkplates. Other factors can include the thickness of the linkplates and the design (contour) of the linkplates. The rule of thumb for roller chain operating on a continuous drive is for the chain load to not exceed a mere 1/6 or 1/9 of the chain’s tensile strength, depending on the type of master links used (press-fit vs. slip-fit)[citation needed]. Roller chains operating on a continuous drive beyond these thresholds can and typically do fail prematurely via linkplate fatigue failure.

The standard minimum ultimate strength of the ANSI 29.1 steel chain is 12,500 x (pitch, in inches)2. X-ring and O-Ring chains greatly decrease wear by means of internal lubricants, increasing chain life. The internal lubrication is inserted by means of a vacuum when riveting the chain together.

Standards organizations (such as ANSI and ISO) maintain standards for design, dimensions, and interchangeability of transmission chains. For example, the following Table shows data from ANSI standard B29.1-2011 (Precision Power Transmission Roller Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets) developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). See the references[8][9][10] for additional information.

For mnemonic purposes, below is another presentation of key dimensions from the same standard, expressed in fractions of an inch (which was part of the thinking behind the choice of preferred numbers in the ANSI standard):

Pitch (inches) Pitch expressed

12 48 41 14
12 48 40 516
58 58 50 38
34 68 60 12
1 88 80 58

Notes:
1. The pitch is the distance between roller centers. The width is the distance between the link plates (i.e. slightly more than the roller width to allow for clearance).
2. The right-hand digit of the standard denotes 0 = normal chain, 1 = lightweight chain, 5 = rollerless bushing chain.
3. The left-hand digit denotes the number of eighths of an inch that make up the pitch.
4. An “H” following the standard number denotes heavyweight chain. A hyphenated number following the standard number denotes double-strand (2), triple-strand (3), and so on. Thus 60H-3 denotes number 60 heavyweight triple-strand chain.
 A typical bicycle chain (for derailleur gears) uses narrow 1⁄2-inch-pitch chain. The width of the chain is variable, and does not affect the load capacity. The more sprockets at the rear wheel (historically 3-6, nowadays 7-12 sprockets), the narrower the chain. Chains are sold according to the number of speeds they are designed to work with, for example, “10 speed chain”. Hub gear or single speed bicycles use 1/2″ x 1/8″ chains, where 1/8″ refers to the maximum thickness of a sprocket that can be used with the chain.

Typically chains with parallel shaped links have an even number of links, with each narrow link followed by a broad one. Chains built up with a uniform type of link, narrow at 1 and broad at the other end, can be made with an odd number of links, which can be an advantage to adapt to a special chainwheel-distance; on the other side such a chain tends to be not so strong.

Roller chains made using ISO standard are sometimes called as isochains.

What are the benefits of using a plastic bush chain?

Plastic bush chains offer several advantages in various industrial applications. Here are some benefits of using a plastic bush chain:

1. Corrosion Resistance: Plastic bush chains are highly resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for use in humid or corrosive environments. Unlike metal chains, plastic chains do not rust or deteriorate when exposed to moisture, chemicals, or certain harsh conditions.

2. Lightweight: Plastic bush chains are significantly lighter than their metal counterparts. This lightweight nature reduces the overall weight of the system, making it easier to handle and operate. It also minimizes the load on supporting structures and reduces energy consumption.

3. Low Noise and Vibration: Plastic bush chains produce minimal noise and vibration during operation. Their smooth and quiet operation is beneficial in applications where noise reduction is required, such as in conveyor systems or assembly lines located in noise-sensitive environments.

4. Self-Lubrication: Some plastic bush chains are designed with built-in self-lubricating properties. These chains incorporate lubricating additives or solid lubricants within the plastic material, reducing the need for external lubrication. Self-lubricating plastic bush chains result in reduced maintenance requirements and prolonged chain life.

5. Chemical Resistance: Plastic bush chains exhibit excellent resistance to various chemicals, including oils, solvents, acids, and alkalis. This chemical resistance allows them to maintain their performance and structural integrity even in environments where exposure to chemicals is common.

6. Design Flexibility: Plastic bush chains offer design flexibility, allowing for customization to meet specific application requirements. They can be manufactured in various shapes, sizes, and configurations to accommodate different load capacities, speeds, and operating conditions.

7. Reduced Wear on Equipment: Plastic bush chains have lower friction coefficients compared to metal chains. This reduced friction minimizes wear on the sprockets and other mating components, extending the service life of the entire system and reducing maintenance costs.

8. Electrical Insulation: Plastic bush chains have excellent electrical insulation properties, making them suitable for applications where electrical conductivity needs to be avoided. They can be used in electrical or electronic assembly lines or environments where static electricity control is necessary.

These benefits make plastic bush chains a viable alternative to traditional metal chains in various industries, including food processing, packaging, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and many others.

How do you troubleshoot common issues with bush chains?

Troubleshooting common issues with bush chains involves identifying the problem and taking appropriate corrective actions. Here are some common issues and their troubleshooting steps:

1. Chain Misalignment: If the bush chain is misaligned, it can cause excessive wear, noise, and premature failure. To troubleshoot this issue, check the alignment of the sprockets and adjust them as necessary. Ensure that the chain runs smoothly and evenly on the sprockets without any binding or skipping.

2. Chain Binding: If the chain becomes stuck or binds during operation, it may be due to improper lubrication, debris accumulation, or worn-out components. Start by cleaning the chain and sprockets to remove any debris or contaminants. Lubricate the chain with the recommended lubricant to reduce friction. If the issue persists, inspect the chain for signs of wear and replace any worn-out components.

3. Excessive Chain Wear: Excessive chain wear can lead to elongation, reduced performance, and increased risk of failure. To troubleshoot this issue, measure the chain’s length and compare it to the manufacturer’s specifications. If the chain has elongated beyond the acceptable limits, it needs to be replaced. Additionally, inspect the chain for signs of pin and bushing wear, plate wear, or sprocket wear. Replace any worn components as necessary.

4. Insufficient Lubrication: Inadequate lubrication can result in increased friction, wear, and premature failure of the bush chain. If the chain appears dry or there are signs of insufficient lubrication, apply the appropriate lubricant to the chain according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Ensure that the lubricant reaches all the critical components of the chain, including the pins, bushings, and rollers.

5. Chain Breakage: Chain breakage can occur due to excessive loads, sudden impacts, or worn-out components. To troubleshoot this issue, inspect the chain for any signs of damaged or broken links. Identify the cause of the breakage, such as overload or impact, and address it accordingly. Replace the broken chain links with a new chain segment and ensure proper installation.

6. Excessive Noise and Vibration: Unusual noise and vibration during chain operation can indicate underlying issues. Inspect the chain for signs of misalignment, worn-out components, or inadequate tension. Address the specific cause by adjusting the alignment, replacing worn parts, or adjusting the tension to reduce noise and vibration.

It’s important to consult the manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations for troubleshooting specific issues with bush chains. Regular inspection, proper lubrication, and timely maintenance can help prevent common issues and ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the bush chain.

How do you select the right bush chain for your application?

Choosing the right bush chain for your application is essential to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Here are some factors to consider when selecting a bush chain:

1. Load Capacity: Evaluate the maximum load that the chain will need to transmit. Consider factors such as weight, acceleration, and shock loads. Choose a bush chain with a load capacity that exceeds the anticipated load to ensure reliable operation.

2. Speed: Determine the operating speed of the chain. Higher speeds may require chains with specialized designs to minimize wear, reduce friction, and maintain accurate timing.

3. Environmental Conditions: Assess the environmental conditions in which the chain will operate. Consider factors such as temperature, humidity, dust, chemicals, and exposure to corrosive substances. Select a bush chain that is designed to withstand the specific conditions of your application.

4. Size and Configuration: Determine the required chain size based on the available space and the dimensions of the sprockets or pulleys. Consider the pitch, width, and overall dimensions of the chain. Additionally, assess whether a standard or custom configuration is needed to meet the application requirements.

5. Lubrication Requirements: Determine the lubrication method and frequency required for the chain. Some bush chains are self-lubricating, while others may require regular lubrication. Consider the availability of lubrication systems and the maintenance requirements of the chain.

6. Reliability and Durability: Assess the expected operational lifespan and the reliability requirements of your application. Look for bush chains from reputable manufacturers known for producing high-quality, durable products. Consider factors such as wear resistance, fatigue strength, and overall reliability.

7. Cost: Evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the bush chain, considering both the initial investment and long-term maintenance costs. Balance the performance requirements with the available budget.

Consult with a knowledgeable supplier or engineer to ensure you select the right bush chain that meets your specific application requirements. They can provide guidance based on their expertise and help you choose a chain that offers optimal performance and durability.
