Product Name Notes
American Standard Chains American standard chains are covered by ISO 606, ANSI B29.1 and DIN 8188 standards. The pitch sizes covered by this standard are 1/4 to 3 inch. American standard chains have...
BS European Standard Chains Chains manufactured to the BS standards are covered by ISO606, BS228 and DIN 8187. The pitch sizes covered by this standard are 6 mm (0,236 inch) to 114,3 mm (4,500...
Corrosion Resistant: Dacrotized Chains -- Xtra Series Dacrotized chains: Dacrotizing is a process of metal coating. The compositions are proprietary water based coating dispersions containing metal oxides, metallic zinc and aluminium flakes. The zinc and aluminium platelets...
Xtra Strength: H Chains -- Xtra Series H Chains: slightly differ from standard ANSI chains due to the fact that the thicker link plates correspond to the next larger size of ANSI roller chains. Therefore, H Series...
Corrosion Resistant: Nickel-Plated Chains -- Xtra Series Nickel-plated: these roller chains combine the strength of standard roller chains with the corrosion resistant properties that come from the nickel-plating. Nickel-plating of all components prior to assembly promotes uniform...
Xtra Strength: SH Chains -- Xtra Series SH Chains: have a 25-35% greater ultimate tensile strength than ANSI heavy duty roller chains due to their thicker plates and thru hardened pins. These chains can accommodate higher shock...
Xtra Strength: SHH Chains -- Xtra Series SHH Chains: use link plates that, in most cases, are equal in thickness to the plates used in the next larger size of SKF Xtra Strength SPH Chains. Its pins...
Side Bow Chains Side bow (curved) chains are able to flex and twist due to extra clearance between the inner and outer side plates. They are ideal for use on curved conveyors or...
Double Pitch Roller Chains SKF Double Pitch Roller Chains are produced in accordance with the ASME/ANSI B29.3 (transmission series) and B29.4 (conveyor series) American roller chain standards. In general, these chains are dimensionally similar...
Hollow Pin Chains SKF Hollow Pin Chains offer flexibility to end-users as cross rods or extended pins may be easily inserted. Ideal for setups where spacing of cross rods or pins must be...
Xtra Strength: SPH Chains -- Xtra Series SPH Chains: have specially designed, close tolerance link plates and pitch holes. Their special design can improve load carrying capacity by 25-32%. The pins used on these chains are thru...
Corrosion Resistant: Stainless Steel Chains -- Xtra Series Stainless steel chains have superior corrosion resistance for the most demanding applications. SKF offers a variety of such chains for applications where a high level of cleanliness is required or...
Performance: SLR Chains -- Xtra Series The method of achieving internal lubrication of the chains is known as sintering and consists of the high quality oil impregnation of the components during their manufacture. The steel bushings...
Corrosion Resistant: Zinc-Plated Chains -- Xtra Series Zinc-plated: these roller chains provide a very good adherence of the plating to the base metal and combines the strength of standard roller chains with the corrosion resistance that comes...
