Metric Sprockets Overview
TL Taper Bushed Metric Sprockets
TL Sprockets are stocked in a wide selection of sizes which includes ISO 06B, 08B, 10B, 12B, 16B and 20B chain sizes (3/8 to 1-1/4” pitch) for single, dual and triple chain. These mount with standard TL tapered bushings from 1008 thru 5050 (i.e., thru a 5” or 125mm shaft diameter). TL Sprockets can be found in a wide variety of diameters to support various program speeds. The popular sizes are stocked with hardened tooth. The C45 material, standard steel sprockets, permits induction hardening of the teeth. So all can be warmth treated Hardened The teeth on ask for. The TL Taper Bushed Sprocket offers a true concentric suit to the shaft. As the TL bushing screws are tightened, the bushing compresses around the shaft securely. Standard hex wrenches are the only tool required for set up or removal. Once the bushing installation screws are loosened and eliminated, the screw is definitely re-used and threaded in to the bushing removal hole. Tightening the removal screw will carefully loosen the sprocket. PTI stocks both metric and in . bore TL bushings, a typical global design, which is why the TL sprocket is so versatile. Simple installation, concentric shaft fit, suitable for higher speeds and large loads plus an economical price, make this the popular choice for new styles and replacement requirements. TL sprockets are usually less expensive than customized or finished bored sprockets. Hub Type Metric Sprockets Hub Type Metric Sprockets can be found with a minimum ordinary bore (pilot bore) and some share finished bore sizes. Any shaft size is possible with our custom bore and keyway ability. Sprockets with hubs are usually suited to the shaft as a clearance fit. They are held in place with two set screws and a keyway. Clearance fits are well-known for light loads and sluggish speeds. A press suit (or shrink fit to the shaft) is normally preferred for higher speeds or heavier loads as they match to the shaft more securely than a clearance suit sprocket. With respect to the clearance of the shaft suit, sprockets may work somewhat on the shaft leading to feasible fretting or shaft put on. All regular hub sprockets are available with hardened the teeth from stock or on demand. Press fits usually need the sprocket to end up being heated for set up to expand the bore. As a heated sprocket cools, it shrinks, conforming to the shaft with a good grip. A arranged screw secures the key. The TL Taper Bushed Sprocket will function just like the press suit sprocket and generally easier to install. Plate Type Metric Sprockets Plate Sprockets for one, dual or triple strand chain are an economical choice allowing for direct mounting to the clients’ hub or shaft. They are most regularly regarded for sprockets above 40 teeth and are available in a wide selection of diameters. Plate type sprockets can be welded or bolted right to the users’ hub keeping apparatus compact and light-weight. They can be purchased in single, dual and triple tooth configurations aswell. Weld on Hubs A Weld-On-Hub is often used to simplify installation, especially huge diameter sprockets. PTI stocks regular TL Weld-OnHub sizes. The Weld-On-Hub uses the standard TL bushings as do most of the other regular drive parts. TL Bushings are stocked in both metric and in . bores. TL Bushings for Weld-On-Hubs or TL Bushed Sprockets TL Taper Bushings for Weld-OnHubs and sprockets are stocked from 1008 thru 5050 sizes covering 5” or 125mm shaft sizes. TL Bushings are perfect for replacements and a modern option for upgrading clearance fit and press match sprockets. TL Bushings are used in a multitude of various other European and American regular drive products. Stainless Steel Metric Sprockets STAINLESS (AISI 304L) Metric Sprockets provide corrosion level of resistance and allow wash-down ability. These hub type sprockets could be given a finished bore and keyway. Stainless Sprockets cannot be hardened. PTI stocks sizes from ISO 06B thru 16B (3/8” -1” pitch) and from 12 to 25 & 30 teeth. Larger sizes available on request. TL Bushed version also on demand. Metric Idler and Double-One Sprockets Metric Idler Sprockets are plate sprockets with a ball bearing for installation. These sprockets generally offer stress for the chain drive and can be utilized within a tension arm assembly or individually mounted to position the drive. Stock sizes are for sale to ISO 05B thru 20B metric chain sizes. Double-Single Sprockets, well-known on conveyors, allow 2 single chains about the same sprocket to control pairs of rolls or drive units that must index. Custom Metric or ANSI Sprockets Customized sprockets including large diameter steel or cast iron models for solitary, duplex or triple strand chain could be made to order. PTI typically keeps some stock inside our European warehouse, so delivery could possibly be rather quick. Various other custom sprockets sizes for Metric conveyor chain or ANSI chain are also feasible. Drawings are preferred to insure requirements are obvious. Each is possible with custom finished bore.
