ANSI roller chain is the most commonly used roller chains in the power transmission world. Our complete line of Nitro™ roller chains is a high quality product that is manufactured to exceed the ANSI B29.1 industry strength standards. We have strict quality standards for all of our roller chains to ensure each chain is manufactured to the highest quality possible for optimum strength, performance an longevity. ANSI chains sizes are available in our standard, heavy duty, cottered & super premium. Each chain is available in multi-stands ranging from double strand wide up to quadruple strands wide.
Standard ANSI chains are the most basic and conventional style roller chain used. Standard roller chains are a riveted style roller chain that comes in single, double, triple & quad row.
These cottered chain are exactly that same as standard roller chain except one side of the chain uses cotter pins. Cottered chains are much easier to work with especially on large pitch chains since cutting down the chain does not require grinding the pin head.
Heavy series chains are stronger than our standard chains and the added strength is achieved by using thicker link plates. This improves the strength & fatigue resistance for drives with repeated shock loads or with frequent starting and stopping actions.
Super premium chains are made for drives that demand extremely tough chain! Super premium chains are made from a higher quality material, hardened pins, wide waist link plates & quad staked pins. Not many drives require super premium, but if it does Nitro chain has you covered.
