For smoother chain drive, a small pitch chain is sug-
gested. If a single strand chain does not satisfy the
transmission requirements, use a multiple strand chain.
If there are space limitations, a multiple strand roller
chain with a smaller pitch may be used.

The limiting RPM for each lubrication type is shown in the charts shaded areas directly above the Type I, II, or III reference. For optimum results, it is recommended that
the Roller Chain manufacturer be given the opportunity to evaluate the conditions of operation of chains in the shaded (galling range) speed area. The Horsepower
Ratings of Multiple Strand Chains are greater than those for Single Strand Chain: see Table II on page 8 for Multiple Strand Factors.

Heavy-series chains are produced with thicker link plates
than standard ANSI chains and are offered in two styles:
HR Riveted style chains contain a carburized pin for
increased wear life in high speed and abrasive applications.
The HZ Cottered style chains contain a through hard-
ened pin for more moderate speed and high load/pulsating
type applications. The HZ Cottered chains deliver a
higher working load capacity and additional resistance to
fatigue in heavy load applications. bearing area for optimum press fits, improving fatigue life

Caterpillar Drive Chain


Made in

Caterpillar Drive Chains are essential in driving drop


forged chain conveyors. Drives, Inc. USA Caterpillar
Drive Chains provide high fatigue life and are designed to
perform flawlessly with forged rivetless chains.

Drives, Inc. USA Caterpillar Drive Chains feature all


ballized plates to ensure maximum bearing area for
optimum press fits. This improves fatigue life and working
loads. We use wide waist link plates with maximized ball
heights to improve stress distribution that also increases
fatigue strength and reduces vibration.

The use of through hardened pins that are micro ground


and shotpeened provides maximum pin to bushing surface
contact for extended wear and protection from any
unpredictable overload. Hardened hook cotters* are
used to resist shearing and hold their place in the most
rigorous of applications.

Our one-piece forged drive dog is induction hardened in


the chain contact bearing area for wear resistance. The
balance of the drive dog is through hardened for strength
and durability.

corrosion and moisture

Made in
resistant chains

U.S.A.
for your application

Drives, Inc. is ready to assist you in providing a full line of moisture and
corrosion resistant chains to suit your application.

Stainless Steel Chain


Stainless steel offers the greatest resistance to corrosion and temperature
extremes. Drives, Inc. manufacturers 300 series roller chains in the most
commonly used sizes. 300 series stainless provides an excellent resistance to
corrosion but is less wear resistant that carbon steel. If your application
requires an alternative stainless; heat treated components for increased wear
or different chemistry for extreme corrosion resistance, contact Drives, Inc.
application engineering.

Nickel-Plated Chain
Nickel-Plated chains are designed to resist incidental contact or exposure to
water or water based wash-down operations. Drives, Inc. applies an electro-
less nickel plating to the component parts prior to assembly to insure com-
plete coverage of all exposed carbon material. Special attention is placed on after-
plating processes to virtually remove the possibility of hydrogen embrittlement a
common occurrence in lesser quality chains.

Silver Shield CRTM Series Chains


Silver Shield CR series chains are available for those applications that may
be subjected to mildly caustic or acidic environments. Silver Shield CR
chains consist of Drives, Inc.s standard carbon steel components, specially
coated with a Zinc Aluminum compound. This compound, combined with
a polymer based resin, tightly adheres to the components during a high
temperature baking process. This combination, quality carbon steel compo-
nents and environmental resistant coating, provides the best alternative to
stainless in applications where stainless has historically been the only option.
All products are configured to meet the needs of the application
Drives, Inc. offers Stainless, Nickel-Plated and Silver Shield CR materials
and coatings in commonly used sizes - in standard packaged lengths or cut-to-
length as required. Additionally, attachment link plates and extended pins are
readily available for the most commonly requested ANSI power transmission
and extended pitch conveyor chains. Contact Drives, Inc. for the specific
availability of the size and configuration your application requires.
Caution: Do not weld or torch-cut nickel plated or Silvershield CR coated chains.
Consult Drives, Inc. Engineering for application information.
ISO 9001 REGISTERED
42

Drives, Incorporated The overall requirements of the application are


U.S.A.
important when selecting the correct type of roller or
Selection Information conveyor chain. The factors that most often define
what chain combination should be used are: resistance
to the environment, wear life / strength and total cost.
Made in

Below are some characteristics to consider when


selecting the chain that best suits the application.

Environment Resistance:
The chain selected should be capable of resisting
the majority of the chemical and/or temperature
requirements. If the environment is ambient in
temperature, then only chemical presence need be
addressed. Drives, Inc. Stainless, Nickel-Plated or
Silver Shield CR chains may be considered depend-
ing upon the severity of the chemical environment. If
the environment is one which is elevated or sub-zero,
Stainless Steel chains will most often provide the best
overall operation.

Wear Life / Strength:


If satisfactory chain life is defined as extended wear,
then carbon steel based products are best suited.
Drives, Inc. Nickel-Plated or Silver Shield CR chains
are constructed from carbon steel components having
the highest level of wear resistance and strength.

Chain strength is normally defined by its allowable


working load. This value is one at which the chain can
be expected to operate at or below for an indefinite
period of time. It is very important to remember that
allowable working load is a function of Ultimate
Tensile Strength but not actually measured using the
same criteria. Chains can have very different allowable
working loads but have very similar Ultimate Tensile
Strengths. Contact Drives, Inc. application engineering
for more information if chain strength is a critical
factor in your application.

Cost:
Cost is normally dependent upon the material used to
produce the chain. Stainless Steel chains are consider-
ably more costly to produce than carbon based chains.
However, if the environment requires a chain with
exceptional corrosion resistance, the use of carbon
steel based chains may provide the user with a lower
priced product, but ultimately incurs a higher cost of
operation.

Depending on the specific component, Drives, Inc. produces 300 series stainless from 301, 302, 303 or 304
material. These materials provide excellent resistance to most corrosive agents as well as temperature
extremes beyond the capability of carbon steel chain. 300 series chains normally have very low magnetic
permeability essentially non-magnetic and when used in conjunction with 300 series sprockets, can be
considered non-sparking.

Silver Shield CRTM Roller Chains


Drives Inc. recognizes that industry requires an option when the strength of carbon steel and some degree of
stainless steel corrosion resistance is required. For these reasons, we have engineered Silver Shield CR to
provide industries this needed option. Silver Shield CR is constructed using our standard high-quality carbon
components that have been specially coated using a Zinc-Aluminum compound. After coating, a protective poly-
mer resin is applied and baked to insure complete resistance to abrasion and flaking. Silver Shield CR is specifi-
cally designed to resist mild acidic or caustic environments. For more information, contact Drives, Inc. application
engineering for specific application criteria.
Equal in strength to carbon steel chains
Equal in wear resistance to carbon steel chains
Protective coating is applied to all parts for uniform and complete protection
Silver Shield CR coating developed specifically for corrosion resistance in caustic or acidic environments

U.S.A.
Up until now there have been many attempts to produce
roller chains capable of operating without lubrication.
Made in

These attempts have focused on either sealing a fixed


volume of lubricant inside the joint during manufacturing or
by providing certain chain components produced from
porous materials reported to retain and disperse lubricant
as the chain requires. These types of solutions are often
only offered in limited sizes and attachments may not be
available.
Sealed joint chains are just that sealed. Once the internal
reservoir of lubricant is exhausted there is no method of
replenishing that supply in service. Additionally, many
environments are unsuitable for these type of chains due to
speeds, loads, temperatures, chemicals or abrasives that
can destroy or dislodge the seals.
Porous component chains are often hindered in similar
ways as sealed chains. Typically, their ability to transmit
high loads and their temperature ranges are limited. Some
are produced with rollers by using a porous bushing
material with a thicker cross-section and a thinner roller
causing impact load issues. Dry, dusty or abrasive
conditions can reduce the operating life of these types of
products.
Chain elongation, due to wear, is the primary mode of
failure in most roller chain drives. Wear is the result of
abrasion between the pin and bushing. The rate of wear
between these two components is often accelerated by the
operating environment or the inability to adequately
provide lubricant to these parts.

Installation and Drive Arrangements


Speed Ratio and Chain Wrap
The speed ratio of roller chain can range up to 7:1 under normal operating conditions.
However, a speed ratio of 10:1 is possible if the speed is very slow. Chain wrap on the small
sprocket must be at least 120 degrees.

Distance Between Shafts


Sprockets can be separated by any distance as long as their teeth do not touch. Optimum
distance is 30 to 50 times the pitch of the chain being used except when there is a pulsating
load. In such cases, the distance should be up to 20 times the pitch of the chain used.

b. Center distance between two
shafts is greater than 3 Ft.
c. Chain is operated under heavy load and high frequency of on and off drive.
d. Direction of the drive is often changed.

Position of Sprocket
The two shafts should be parallel and
preferably in a horizontal position. Sprock-
ets should be firmly installed. (See Figs. B

Use a straight edge to check that the two


sprockets are installed along the same
horizontal plane.

Lubrication Increases the Service Life
One of the most important factors in getting the best possible performance out of your
roller chain is proper lubrication. No matter how well a transmission system is designed, if it
is not properly lubricated, its service life will be shortened.

Lubrication
Wear between the pin and bushing causes the roller
chain to elongate. These parts should, therefore, be
well lubricated. The gap between the pin link plate and
the roller link plate on the slack side of the chain Manufacturer of:
should be filled with oil. This oil forms a film which USA ANSI
minimizes wear on the pin and bushing, thus increasing Power Transmission
the chains service life. It also reduces noise and acts as Roller Chains
a coolant when the chain runs at high speeds.

Drives, Incorporated Engineering Information


The following three lubricating systems are suggested:
System A Manual Lubrication (System A - top)
Oil is applied with an oil filler or brush in the gap
between the pin link and roller link on the slack side
of the chain. It should be applied about every eight
hours or as often as necessary to prevent the
bearing area of the chain from becoming dry.

Always turn off and lockout the power switch


before lubricating or servicing a chain system.

Drip Lubrication (System A - bottom)


A simple casing can be used. The oil is supplied by
drip feed. Each strand of chain should ordinarily
receive 5 to 20 drops of oil per minute, according to
increases in the chain speed.

Customer Service

product managers A leak proof casing is required. The chain dips into
await your call. the oil at bottom of casing. The sprocket should
dip into the oil approximately 1/2. If the sprocket
is immersed more than 1/2 too much heat is
generated.

Lubrication by Slinger Disc (System B -


bottom)
A leak proof casing is required. The chain does not
need to dip into the oil at the bottom of casing. The
slinger disc should dip into the oil from 1/2 to 1.

System C Lubrication Using a Pump (System C)


Use a leak-free casing. A pump is used to circulate
the oil which is then cooled. (See Table V for lubrica-

sprocket. Typically used with staggered pitch chain.

Slip Fit: No interference fit between side plate and pin.

Slip Stick : Slip stick occurs when the motor drives continually, sprocket rotates, but the chain
moves ahead by stopping and starting at intervals. This could be caused by the following:

a) Fluctuations in the coefficient of friction between bushing and rollers (i.e. rotating, sticking,
rotating, sticking)

b) Insufficient chain hardness on conveyor lines

c) Insufficient drive equipment or frame hardness

Special Hook Cotter: The retaining pin for cotter-style chain and connecting links.

corrosion and moisture


resistant chains
to fit your application

Drives, Inc. is ready to assist you in providing a full line of moisture and
corrosion resistant chains to suit your application.

Stainless Steel Chain


Stainless steel offers the greatest resistance to corrosion and temperature
extremes. Drives, Inc. manufacturers 300 series roller chains in the most
commonly used sizes. 300 series stainless provides an excellent resis-
tance to corrosion but is less wear resistant that carbon steel. If your
application requires an alternative stainless; heat treated components for
increased wear or different chemistry for extreme corrosion resistance,
contact Drives, Inc. application engineering.

Nickel-Plated Chain
Nickel-Plated chains are designed to resist incidental contact or exposure
to water or water based wash-down operations. Drives, Inc. applies an
electroless nickel plating to the component parts prior to assembly to
insure complete coverage of all exposed carbon material. Special attention is
placed on after-plating processes to virtually remove the possibility of hydrogen
embrittlement a common occurrence in lesser quality chains.

Silver Shield CRTM Series Chains


Silver Shield CR series chains are available for those applications
that may be subjected to mildly caustic or acidic environments.
Silver Shield CR chains consist of Drives, Inc.s standard carbon steel
components, specially coated with a Zinc Aluminum compound. This
compound, combined with a polymer based resin, tightly adheres to the
components during a high temperature baking process. This combina-
tion, quality carbon steel components and environmental resistant
coating, provides the best alternative to stainless in applications where
stainless has historically been the only option.
All products are configured to meet the needs of the application
Drives, Inc. offers Stainless, Nickel-Plated and Silver Shield CR materi-
als and coatings in commonly used sizes - in standard packaged lengths or
cut-to-length as required. Additionally, attachment link plates and
extended pins are readily available for the most commonly requested
ANSI power transmission and extended pitch conveyor chains. Contact
Drives, Inc. for the specific availability of the size and configuration your
application requires.
Caution: Do not weld or torch-cut nickel plated or Silver Shield CR coated chains.

Chain strength is normally defined by its allowable


working load. This value is one at which the chain
Wear Resistance / Strength can be expected to operate at or below for an indefi-

ber that allowable working load is a function of

Silver Shield CRTM Roller Chains


Drives Inc. recognizes that industry requires an option when the strength of carbon steel and some degree of
stainless steel corrosion resistance is required. For these reasons, we have engineered Silver Shield CR
to provide industries this needed option. Silver Shield CR is constructed using our standard high-quality
carbon components that have been specially coated using a Zinc-Aluminum compound. After coating,
a protective polymer resin is applied and baked to insure complete resistance to abrasion and flaking.
Silver Shield CR is specifically designed to resist mild acidic or caustic environments. For more
information, contact Drives, Inc. application engineering for specific application criteria.

Up until now there have been many attempts to


produce roller chains capable of operating without
lubrication. These attempts have focused on either
sealing a fixed volume of lubricant inside the joint
during manufacturing or by providing certain chain
components produced from porous materials reported
to retain and disperse lubricant as the chain requires.
These types of solutions are often only offered in
limited sizes and attachments may not be available.
Sealed joint chains are just that sealed. Once the
internal reservoir of lubricant is exhausted there is no
method of replenishing that supply in service. Addi-
tionally, many environments are unsuitable for these
type of chains due to speeds, loads, temperatures,
chemicals or abrasives that can destroy or dislodge
the seals.
Porous component chains are often hindered in
similar ways as sealed chains. Typically, their ability
to transmit high loads and their temperature ranges
are limited. Some are produced with rollers by
using a porous bushing material with a thicker cross-
section and a thinner roller causing impact load
issues. Dry, dusty or abrasive conditions can reduce
the operating life of these types of products.
Chain elongation, due to wear, is the primary mode
of failure in most roller chain drives. Wear is the
result of abrasion between the pin and bushing.
The rate of wear between these two components is
often accelerated by the operating environment or
the inability to adequately provide lubricant to
these parts.

The following procedure is useful for economical and quick chain selection.

Step 1: Confirm the operating conditions of the conveyor


Step 2: Tentatively select the chain size
Step 3: Calculate the design chain tension (actual chain tension)
Step 4: Calculate design pull
Step 5: Calculate chain tensions
Step 6: Verify the chain selection

Step 1: Confirm the operating conditions of the conveyor


The following information is needed to design a chain conveyor.

1. Type of conveyor (slat conveyor, bucket elevator, etc.)


2. Method of chain travel (horizontal, inclined, or vertical conveyor)
3. Type, weight, and size of materials to be conveyed
4. Weight of materials to be transported per foot of conveyor length
5. Conveyor speed
6. Conveyor length
7. Lubrication
8. Considerations for special environments

Step 2: Tentatively select the chain size


To tentatively select the chain size, estimate the chain tension (P) by the formulas on the following page. A chain
with an allowable load equal to or over the below calculated chain tension may be tentatively selected. Use the
following formulas to estimate the chain weight for this step.

Estimated Chain Weight for Selection


For Chain Rolling: Chain Weight
W=(0.002) (M) (C)

For Chain Sliding: Chain Weight


W=(0.004) (M) (C)

Where:
M = Weight of Material Being Conveyed on Conveyor (Lbs./Ft.)
(See Table VI)

C = Center Distance Between Sprockets

Step 4: Calculate Design Pull (DP)


DP = P x V x E (See Tables IV & V)
Using Table V under conveyor speed, read down to the number nearest 1.00 (this will be in the vicinity of the
heavy dividing line). Read across to the left to obtain the optimum sprocket size. If space limitations require using
smaller sprockets, read across from the right from the number of teeth to the column under conveyor speed -
obtain the Speed Correction Factor (E).

Step 5: Calculate Chain Tensions (T) Note: The 1.2 multiplier is used to
provide for possible overload in
Single strand conveyor T = DP
one strand due to unequal load
Double strand conveyor T = (DP) (1.2) /2 distribution.

Triple strand conveyor T = (DP) (1.2) /3

More than three strands Consult Drives, Incorporated Engineering

Step 6: Verify the Chain Selection


Compare the chain tension of Step 5 to the maximum recommended working load for the chain. The chain
tension should be less than the working load. If the chain tension is much smaller than the working load, try the
next smaller chain size. If the chain tension is greater than the working load, try the next larger chain size.
Repeat Steps 3-5 for the new chain size.

Caterpillar Drive Chains


Made in

Caterpillar Drive Chains are essential in driving drop


forged chain conveyors. Drives, Inc. USA Caterpillar
Drive Chains provide high fatigue life and are designed to
perform flawlessly with forged rivetless chains.

Drives, Inc. USA Caterpillar Drive Chains feature all


ballized plates to ensure maximum bearing area for
optimum press fits. This improves fatigue life and
working loads. We use wide waist link plates with
maximized ball heights to improve stress distribution
that also increases fatigue strength and reduces vibration.

The use of through hardened pins that are micro ground


and shotpeened provides maximum pin to bushing
surface contact for extended wear and protection from
any unpredictable overload. Hardened hook cotters* are
used to resist shearing and hold their place in the most
rigorous of applications.

Our one-piece forged drive dog is induction hardened in


the chain contact bearing area for wear resistance. The
balance of the drive dog is through hardened for
strength and durability.

Lubrication Increases the Service Life
Manufacturer of: One of the most important factors in getting the best possible performance out of your
USA ANSI roller chain is proper lubrication. No matter how well a transmission system is designed, if
Power Transmission it is not properly lubricated, its service life will be shortened.
Roller Chains
Lubrication
Conveyor Chain Wear between the pin and bushing causes chain to
Products elongate. These parts should, therefore, be well
lubricated. The clearance between the pin link plate
Pintle Chains and the roller link plate on the slack side of the chain
should be filled with oil. This oil forms a film which
Auger Products
minimizes wear on the pin and bushing, thus increas-
Engineering Class ing the chains service life. It also reduces noise and
Chains acts as a coolant when the chain runs at high speeds.

Suggested Lubricants
Only high quality oil should be used to lubricate Temperature Recommended
Degrees F Lubricant
chain. Neither heavy oil nor grease is suitable. The
viscosity of the oil used will depend on the chain -20 - +20 SAE 10

size, chain speed, and ambient temperature. The 20 - 40 SAE 20


lubricants suggested for specific temperature ranges
are given in the table to the right. 40 - 100 SAE 30

Note: Chains with thru hardened pins may wear at 100 - 120 SAE 40
an increased rate if they lack adequate effective
120 - 140 SAE 50
lubrication.

Standard Lubricating Systems:


Manual Lubrication
Oil is applied with an oil filler or brush in the gap
between the pin link and roller link on the slack side
of the chain. It should be applied about every eight
hours or as often as necessary to prevent the
bearing area of the chain from becoming dry.

Always turn off and lockout the power switch


before lubricating or servicing a chain system.

Drip Lubrication
1-800-435-0782 A simple casing can be used. The oil is supplied by
drip feed. Each strand of chain should ordinarily
receive 5 to 20 drops of oil per minute, according
to increases in the chain speed.

Troubleshooting Guide
Problem Possible Causes What to Do
Excessive noise Misalignment of sprockets Realign sprockets and shafts
Loose casings or bearings Tighten set-bolts
Too little or too much slack Adjust centers or idler take-up
Chain and/or sprocket wear Replace chain and/or sprocket
Inadequate lubrication or no Lubricate properly
lubrication Check chain drive selection
Chain pitch size too large

Chain vibration Resonance to the vibration cycle of Change vibration cycle of chain or
machine to be installed machine
High load fluctuation Use torque converter or fluid
coupling

Wear on inside of link plate and Misalignment Realign sprockets and shafts
one side of sprocket teeth.

Chain climbs sprockets Excessive chain wear Replace chain


Excessive chain slack Adjust centers or idler take-up
Heavy overload Reduce load or install stronger chain

Broken pins, bushings or rollers Chain speed is too high for pitch and Use shorter pitch chain or install
sprocket size larger diameter sprockets
Heavy shock or suddenly applied Reduce shock load or install stronger
loads chain
Material build-up in sprocket tooth Remove material build-up or install
pockets side gashed sprockets (mud relief)
Inadequate lubrication Lubricate properly
Chain or sprocket corrosion Install anti-corrosive chain or
sprockets

Chain clings to sprocket Center distance too long or high load Adjust the center distance or install
fluctuation idler take-up
Excessive chain slack Same as above
Excessive chain wear Replace chain

Chain gets stiff Misalignment Realign sprockets and shafts


Inadequate lubrication Lubricate properly
Corrosion Replace with anti-corrosive chain
Excessive load Reduce load or replace with chain or
Material build-up in chain joint suitable strength
Peening of link plate edges Shield drive from foreign matter
Check for chain interference

Breakage of link plate Subjected to shock load Reduce shock (e.g., install a shock
Vibration absorber)
Moment of load inertia is too large Install a device to absorb vibration
(e.g., tensioner idler wheel)
Chain section should be checked
(increase number of strands or
select next larger size chain)

Glossary

A
Angle of Flex: The total angle of chain joint articulation as a chain enters or leaves a sprocket or
wheel. The angle is equal to 360 degrees divided by the number of teeth in the sprocket.

ANSI: The abbreviation for American National Standards Institute which is the organization which
sets the standards which chains should be manufactured.

Articulation (v,articulate): The action of a chain joint flexing from the straight to an angle and
back to straight, as the joint enters and leaves the sprocket or other path, causing it to flex.

B
Backlash: Movement (if any) of the chain along the pitch line of the sprocket when the direction of
chain travel is reversed.

Block Chain: An alternative name used by some manufacturers for bar-link chain or for certain styles
of leaf chain.

Bottom Diameter: The diameter of a circle measured between one toothgap and the opposite gap
for a sprocket with even number of teeth.

Bushing: Internal component in a roller chain which the pin articulates around and the roller
rotates on.

C
Cable Chain: See Leaf Chain.

Caliper Diameter: The distance measured between one tooth gap and the nearest opposite gap for
a sprocket with an odd number of teeth.

Caterpillar Drive Chain: Chain with pushers which is used to drive Drop Forged chain.

Slip Stick : Slip stick occurs when the motor drives continually, sprocket rotates, but the chain moves
ahead by stopping and starting at intervals. This could be caused by the following:

a) Fluctuations in the coefficient of friction between bushing and rollers (i.e. rotating, sticking,
rotating, sticking)

b) Insufficient chain hardness on conveyor lines

c) Insufficient drive equipment or frame hardness

Corrosion Resistant
Attachment Chain
Silver Shield CRTM Attachment Chain

Silver Shield CRTM Attachment Chain


Drives Inc. recognizes that industry requires an option when the strength of carbon steel and some degree of
corrosion resistance is required. For these reasons, we have engineered Silver Shield CR to provide indus-
tries this needed option. Silver Shield CR is constructed using our standard high-quality carbon components
that have been specially coated using a Zinc-Aluminum compound. After coating, a
protective polymer resin is applied and baked to insure complete resistance to abrasion and flaking.
Silver Shield CR is specifically designed to resist corrosion in mildly acidic or caustic environments.
For more information, contact Drives, Inc. application engineering for specific application criteria.
Equal in strength to carbon steel chains
Equal in wear resistance to carbon steel chains
Protective coating is applied to all parts for uniform and complete protection

Precision Attachment Roller Chain Products


Selection Guide
Drives, Incorporated ANSI single and double pitch roller chain is widely used for conveyor
service. The following procedure is useful for economical and quick chain selection.

Step 1: Confirm the operating conditions of the conveyor


Step 2: Tentatively select the chain size
Step 3: Calculate the design chain tension (actual chain tension)
Step 4: Verify the chain selection
Step 5: Verify the allowable roller load

Step 1: Confirm the operating conditions of the


conveyor
The following information is needed to design a chain conveyor.

1. Type of conveyor (slat conveyor, bucket elevator, etc.)


2. Method of chain travel (horizontal, inclined, or vertical conveyor)
3. Type, weight, and size of materials to be conveyed
4. Weight of materials to be transported per foot of conveyor length
5. Conveyor speed
6. Conveyor length
7. Lubrication
8. Considerations for special environments

Step 2: Tentatively select the chain size


To tentatively select the chain size, estimate the chain tension (P) by the following formula. A
chain with an allowable load equal to or over the below calculated chain tension may be
tentatively selected.

P (lbs.) = MT x f x k1
MT Total weight of material conveyed (lbs.)
f Coefficient of friction, sliding and/or rolling (fr fs Table I, II or III)
k1 Chain speed coefficient (Table V)
ISO 9001 REGISTERED
22

Step 3: Calculate chain tension
Next, the chain tension should be calculated using the actual weight of the conveyor chain
and material conveyed.

Points to Consider:
1. For long conveyors, use take-up devices to eliminate chain slack.
Take-up stroke = (center distance between sprockets x 0.02) + catenary sag allow-
ance.

2. Chain must always be engaged with at least 3 sprocket teeth.

3. When two or more strands of conveyor chain operate together, all sprocket teeth
on the head shaft should be aligned. The chain may be matched at the factory for
uniform length and attachment alignment for accurate multiple strand operation.
