This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Examine the chain elongation at a portion that’s most
commonly engaged using the sprockets (portion more than likely to become worn).

This gage checks the wear-elongation of chains.
Verify the chain elongation at a portion that is most
usually engaged using the sprockets (portion almost certainly to become worn).
Once the center with the pin with the chain to get measured reaches the arrow point, it implies that the chain is critically elongated. In this instance, exchange the chain.
Use the gage to verify the dress in elongation of the chain.
Common terms for sprockets
Nominal variety of sprockets
The nominal amount of a sprocket is the similar because the nominal quantity of the corresponding chain. As an example, Chains such as 50, 50HK, and 50LD could be engaged having a sprocket 50. It’s followed by symbols and characters indicating the amount of chain strands, the quantity of sprocket teeth, hub kind, tooth head hardening, etc.
Diameter of ready hole and shaft hole finishing
A normal sprocket to get a single strand or double strand chain has a shaft hole ready at a diameter stated inside the table of dimensions. After you finish the shaft hole, machine it in reference to your outer diameter or root diameter.
Hardening of tooth heads
The teeth of the sprocket should be hard and put on resistant as they are impacted when engaged with all the rollers with the chain and worn by sliding using the rollers. When serious wear and big shocks are anticipated, sprocket.
Forms, development and materials

The typical sprockets 40 to 120 using a hub on only one side for single and double strand chains are induction-hardened even though the amount of teeth is small. No matter if the products is induction hardened or not is shown during the tables of dimensions of respective sprockets for your reference. In addition, while in the following scenarios, induction-harden the teeth of the sprocket.?The little sprocket has twenty or less teeth and it is used at 1/6 or additional of your optimum pace stated within the table of greatest kilowatt ratings.
The smaller sprocket is applied at a adjust gear ratio of four:one or a lot more.
The modest sprocket is used to get a reduced pace substantial load transmission as in situations of variety based on the “Low-speed selection”.
Sprockets are utilized in circumstances wherever the teeth are heavily worn.
Sprockets are made use of beneath conditions wherever you can find regular starts and stops or sudden common or reverse rotations.
Standard cautions
For picking the number of teeth and velocity ration from the sprocket, see “How to select right chain” . For cautions for installing a sprocket on the shaft and replacement timing, see “Installation adjustment maintenance” .
