Chain drives are one of the most common examples of Power Transmission systems seen in vehicle wheels like bicycles and motorcycles. At BearingShopUK, we cater to both American Standard and British Standard chain variants to suit your different mechanical needs. Remember that the three most important things to consider when choosing a Roller Chain and Sprockets are the roller pitch, roller diameter, and roller width.
Determining the standards of your preffered chain is important to keep a precise dimension, especially when you are buying one. American Standard Chain and Sprockets conform the the ANSI Standard B29.1 and make use of 14 easily referenced size numbers as follows:
25 (0.25") | 35 (0.375") | 41 (0.5") | 40 (0.5") | 50 (0.625") | 60 (0.75") | 80 (1") | 100 (1.25") | 120 (1.5") | 140 (1.75") | 160 (2") | 180 (2.25") | 200 (2.5") | 240 (3")
Similar to American Standard Roller Chains and sprockets, the British Standard Chain differs as it follows the dimensions accorded by British Standards or more specifically, the ISO 606 B, BS 228, and DIN 8187 European standards.
In general, British Standard Roller Chains and Sprockets are manufactured with solid bushings making them ideal to use in various industries and similar industrial applications like the automotive industry, conveyors, and steel mills. Just like ANSI links, BearingShopUK also provides simplex, duplex and triplex metric chains.
