More Roller Chain Information
British Standard roller chains refer to the ISO/R 606-1982 (DIN 8187) and American standard roller chains refer to ANSI (DIN 8188). In regards to the length of chain, the number of pitches is always odd. Connecting links are used to connect and close the chain length into a ring and the number of pitches therefore become even.
Roller chain and sprockets can be used for many applications including bicycles, industrial and agricultural machinery. When combined they provide high power, synchronous drive systems. Our manufacturers ensure high quality materials are used and that components are finished to tight dimensional tolerances.
