## What is a 2040 chain?

Description & Specifications. The C2040 roller chain is a conveyor style roller chain that uses straight side plates. C2040 conveyor roller chain has the same dimensions as standard ANSI roller chain except for the pitch, which is double.

### What is double pitch chain?

Double Pitch Roller Chain has the same basic construction as Standard Roller Chain, but double pitch means the chain pitch is twice as long, has flat-shaped link plates, and longer attachments. This series is regulated by ANSI B29.

### How do you calculate chain size?

Procedure

1. Calculate C, where C = CD/p.
2. Calculate A, where A = Z1 + Z2.
3. Calculate S, where S = Z2 – Z1.
4. Refer to the adjacent table to find the T value for the calculated S value.
5. Chain Length in Pitches, CL = 2C + (A/2) + (T/C)

What Is a number 50 chain?

# 50 chain is an American standard size that is built to ANSI B29. 1 standards. This size is commonly referred to as 5/8″ pitch roller chain, which comes from the pin to pin measurement. 50 chain is one of the most widely used chain sizes out of the 14 available ANSI standard chains.

Is a 420 chain same as 40?

We use the #420 chain the most out of these 3. It’s not as wide (from side plate to side plate) as the #40 chain which helps to not slap your driven pulley or frame if it’s in a tight fit. #420 will have more strength than the #41 chain because the side plates will be taller.

## Will a 41 chain fit a 420 sprocket?

#41 Chain will only fit #41 sprockets, #40 sprockets are too wide. #420 will fit on #41 sprockets, its just a little bit heavier duty with a larger pin.
