Poly Chain® GT® Sprockets


Poly Chain® GT® Sprockets

  Markets/Applications

Use with Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ belts and Poly Chain® Carbon Volt.


Features/Advantages
  • Full split in bushing allows easy installation and removal.
  • Precise sprocket design produces positive, press fit to shaft.
  • Smaller, narrower sprockets save shaft space, keep the load closer to bearing and extend life of reducer.
  • Keep overhung load below manufacturers recommendation.
  • Sprockets are precision manufactured and static balanced.

Notes

Sprocket part numbers are comprised of pitch, number of grooves and width. For example; part number 8M-48S-12 denotes 8mm pitch, 48 grooves, “S” for sprocket and 12mm width.

On a sprocket, pitch is the distance between groove centers and is measured on the pitch circle of the sprocket. The pitch circle of the sprocket coincides with the pitch line of the belt mating with it. The pitch diameter of the sprocket is always greater than its outside diameter.

Details shown which do not affect drive function or overall weight may be changed without notification.

Abbreviations used for sprocket materials: GI=Gray Iron, DI=Ductile Iron, SiS=Sintered Steel, ST=Steel, CI=Cast Iron.

WARNING: Do NOT use these sprockets with rim speeds in excess of 33 m/s.


Poly Chain® GT® Sprockets - Stainless Steel

Markets/Applications
Use with Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ belts and Poly Chain® Carbon Volt. Stainless steel Poly Chain® GT® sprockets are ideal for the food and beverage market or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.

Features/Advantages
  • Cost effective alternative to stainless roller chain drives.

  • Taper-Lock® bushings save shaft space allowing load to be closer to bearing.

  • Can be used with rim speeds of 40 m/s.
Notes
Sprocket part numbers are comprised of pitch, number of grooves and width. For example; part number SS8M-28S-12 denotes "SS" for stainless steel, 8mm pitch, 28 grooves, “S” for sprocket and 12mm width.

On a sprocket, pitch is the distance between groove centers and is measured on the pitch circle of the sprocket. The pitch circle of the sprocket coincides with the pitch line of the belt mating with it. The pitch diameter of the sprocket is always greater than its outside diameter.
