ASME B29.100-2011 (R2021)

Double-Pitch Roller Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets (B29.100 - 2011)

This Standard is a revision of the ASME Standard B29.100-2002 Precision Power Transmission, Double Pitch Power Transmission, and Double-Pitch Conveyor Roller Chains, Attachments and Sprockets, achieved by consolidation of two of its three constituent Standards: ASME B29.3 Double-Pitch Power Transmission Roller Chains and Sprockets and ASME B29.4 Double-Pitch Conveyor Roller Chains, Attachments and Sprockets. (The third constituent Standard B29.1 Precision Power Transmission Roller Chains, Attachments and Sprockets was earlier revised and published as a separate Standard B29.1-2011 with its title unchanged). No changes were made to dimensional limits or capacities formerly listed in B29.3M and B29.4M; however, some text and several Tables were merged to eliminate redundancies. This Standard provides consolidated information on double-pitch roller chains of both the conveyor and power transmission types. A double-pitch conveyor roller chain is a series of alternately assembled roller links and pin links in which the pins articulate inside the bushings and the rollers are free to turn on the bushings. The pins and bushings are press-fitted into their respective link plates. The pitch of link plates is twice that of the link plates of the base series chain. Pin link plates and roller link plates have identical, straight-edge contours. A double-pitch power transmission roller chain is similar to a double-pitch conveyor roller chain except that the link-plate widths are usually reduced in the center to produce a figure-eight shape. This reduces the weight of the chain to make it more suitable for power-transmission applications. There are also Tables for (a) General dimensions, measuring loads and minimum ultimate tensile strengths; (b) Ultimate dimensional limits for interchangeability; (c) Dimensional limits for straight- and bent-link plate extensions with one or two attachment holes; (d) Dimensional limits for conveyor chains with extended pins; (e) Sprocket tooth section profile dimensions; (f) Minus tolerances on the bottom or caliper diameters of sprockets for various numbers of effective teeth; and (g) Sprocket factors for small and large roller and power-transmission series.

This Standard includes information for Steel Roller Type Conveyor Chains, Attachments and Sprocket Teeth: A series of roller links having steel bushings with rollers to contact the sprocket teeth, alternating with links comprised of sidebars and pins, which articulate in the steel bushings of the roller link. The main topics are (a) General Chain Proportions and Designations; (b) Dimensions of chain links and of attachments; and (c) Sprocket Tooth Form. There are also Tables for (a) General Chain Dimensions , Minimum Ultimate Tensile Strength, Strand Length and Measuring Load (b) Maximum and Minimum Controlling Dimensions for Interchangeable Chain Links; (c) Chain Clearance Dimensions; (d) A-1, A-2, A-42, K-1, K-2 Attachments; (e) Maximum Eccentricity and Face Runout Tolerances of Sprockets; and (f) Sprocket Factors.

ASME B29.200-2001 (R2021)

Welded-Steel-Type Mill Chains, Welded-Steel-Type Drag Chains, Attachments, and Sprocket Teeth (B29.200 - 2001)

There is a newer edition of this document available. This Standard is a consolidation of two ASME Standards, ASME B29.16M-1995 (Welded Steel-Type Mill Chains, Attachments, and Sprocket Teeth) and ASME B29.18M-1993 (Welded Steel-Type Drag Chains, Attachments, and Sprocket Teeth). These two Standards were combined into one because of the similarity of construction and the usual applications for the two types of chains. The welded-steel-type mill chains (B29.16M) were developed to provide a series of steel chains similar to cast chains of the detachable, mill, and combination types. A welded steel-type mill chain is a series of identical welded offset links having barrels to contact the sprocket teeth, and pins which articulate in the barrels of the links. Pins are fixed in the sidebar pitch holes by either press fits and/or mechanical locks , such as flats, to prevent rotation of the pins in the sidebar pitch holes. The main topics of B29.16M are (a) Assembled chain; (b) Disassembled chain; (c) Dimensions of chain; and (d) Sprocket tooth form. There are also Tables for (a) General chain dimensions, Minimum ultimate tensile strength rating, Strand length, and Measuring load for checking chain lengths; (b) Maximum and minimum controlling dimensions for interchangeable chain links; (c) Chain clearance dimensions; (d) A1, A2, A22, F2, F4, K1, K2 and W1 attachments; (e) Sprockets â?? Maximum eccentricity and Face runout tolerances; and (f) Sprocket tooth form factors. Although the welded-steel type mill chains were introduced many years ago for the forest products industries, their extended usage in a variety of materials handling and drive applications in recent years stimulated standardization of the basic types. The welded-steel-type drag chains (B29.18M) were developed to provide a series of steel chains similar to cast drag chains in the offset and combination types. Welded steel drag chains were originally introduced for the forest products industries and their expanded usage in recent years called for standardization of basic sizes. A welded-steel-type drag chain is a series of identical welded offset links having barrels to contact the sprocket teeth, and pins which articulate in the barrels of the links. Pins are fixed in the sidebar pitch holes by either press fits and/or mechanical locks, such as flats, to prevent rotation of the pins in the sidebar pitch holes. The main topics are (a) general chain proportions and designations; (b) Attachments; (c) Sprocket tooth form; and (d) Sprocket design data. There are also Tables for (a) Barrel cross section; (b) General chain dimensions, Minimum ultimate tensile stregth, measuring length, and Load for checking chain lengths; (c) Maximum and minimum controlling dimensions for interchangeable chain links; (d) Chain clearance dimensions; (e) C1, C3, C4, RR and wing-type attachments; (f) Sprocket tooth form factors; and (g) Sprockets: Maximum eccentricity and Face runout tolerances.
