BS & ANSI Sprockets
SPROCKET TEETH ARE INDUCTION HARDENED AND/OR MADE FROM HIGH CARBON STEEL - Much longer life for sprocket and chain providing lower maintenance costs.
BOSSES ARE MACHINED AFTER WELDING - Holds axial alignment when boring and keying resulting in longer sprocket wear life and the chain lasts longer.
TRUE RUNNING - Pitch diameter is concentric to the bore which makes the sprocket wear longer and chain last longer.
KEYWAYS ON CENTER LINE OF TOOTH - (Solid and Welded) All sprockets are timed to save the extra cost of made-to-order product when timing is required.
SOLID and WELDED CONSTRUCTION - Lower cost
