Avail Best-in-Class Sprockets only at Emechmart
A sprocket is a wheel with teeth, cogs, or sprockets meshed with holes in links of a chain, track, or other perforated material. A sprocket differs from a gear in that it never engages directly with another sprocket. At Emechmart sprockets are designed to be used with a specific chain. We help you to choose the right style sprockets cycles that ensure performance efficiency and minimize maintenance.
Classifications of Sprockets at Emechmart
We at Emechmart classify sprockets based on their types and their hub styles. At our online store, you will find diversified sprockets that are designed to meet the versatile requirements of different industrial domains. The sprockets-rails are classified by type, which indicates the hub style:
· Sprockets are flat and have no hubs. The sprockets motorcycle are usually mounted on the flanges or hubs of the equipment they are running through a series of plain or tapered holes.
· Sprockets have a hub on one side, which allows the sprocket to fit closer to the machinery on which it is mounted. This eliminates large overhang loads on equipment bearings.
· Sprockets are extended on both sides of the plate and are generally used on driven sprockets where the pitch diameter is large and where there is more weight to support the shaft. Larger loads should have larger hubs.
· Sprockets mounted on a solid or split hub. The sprocket is splined and bolted to the hub for easy removal. Speed ratio can be changed without removing bearings and other equipment.
Types of sprockets available at Emechmart
At Emechmart you will find different types of sprockets that are used to derive forces for different applications. You can use single strands, double stands or multiple strands for different kinds of operations.
The single sprockets are used where high working loads and high clamp loading on the shaft are desirable. They are flanged and use anchor bolts around the perimeter. The simplex sprockets are easy to install and remove with tapered bushings, providing clamp force and aligning sprockets.
Double strands sprockets also know as duplex sprockets are used in applications where two or more items are driven by a common drive shaft. The space between the plates is wider than a multi-strand sprocket and allows two separate strands of chain to connect without contacting each other. One edge may protrude in a different direction than the other.
Multi-strand sprockets can also be considered as triple sprockets are used where high torque and power are required or where two or more items are driven by a common drive shaft. Available in 40 to 160 chain pitch with plain, finished, taper-lock or QD style hubs.
Taper-lock chain sprocket use a splice through a taper and flange to provide a true clamp on the shaft. The taper-lock bushing is held in place with a set screw on the sprocket. They provide flexibility by allowing multiple hole sizes for bush sizes.
Split hub sprocket
A steel split sprocket splits across the radius for easy installation and removal. The halves are held together by bolts. The chain sprocket kit is available in pitch sizes from 40 to 240 and bore diameters from 3/4 to 6 inches.
