Chains which have double pitch than transmission chains but have same dimensions. Reduces by half number of rollers and bushes and hence cost effective for conveyor applications.
Double Pitch Drive Chains
The pitch of the chains is twice that of standard chains while other components have the same dimensions of the corresponding standard chains. These cost effective chains are used in light load drives typically agriculture.
Double Pitch Conveyor Chains - American Series
The chains are similar to double pitch power transmission chains, but the Link Plates have a straight contour and can be produced with standard or large rollers. They are used in conveyor applications where loads are low and speeds are moderate.
