What Does Pitch Mean on Chain Sprocket?

Pitch is one of the main factors to consider when selecting a for power transmission. Pitch is a term used to describe the distance between two adjacent teeth on a sprocket. It is the most important measure of a sprocket's size and must match the pitch of the chain that will be used. The three most common sprocket pitches are 25.4mm, 12.7mm, and 6.35mm, and the corresponding chain pitches are 1/2”, 1/4”, and 3/16”.

Understanding Pitch on Chain Sprocket

The pitch of a chain sprocket is the distance between any two adjacent teeth. It is measured from the centerline of one tooth to the centerline of the next tooth. The pitch of a sprocket must match the pitch of the chain that will be used with it. If the pitch of the sprocket does not match the pitch of the chain, the chain will not fit properly on the sprocket and could cause damage to the drive system.

Types of Pitch on Chain Sprocket

The most common types of pitch on chain sprocket are 25.4mm, 12.7mm, and 6.35mm. These are also called 1/2”, 1/4”, and 3/16” respectively. The pitch of the sprocket must match the pitch of the chain it is intended to be used with.

25.4mm pitch, also known as 1/2” pitch, is the most common pitch used in power transmission applications. This pitch is used with the #25 . It is the most robust and durable of the three common pitches and is suitable for applications that require high power or torque.

12.7mm pitch, also known as 1/4” pitch, is the most common pitch used for lighter duty applications. This pitch is used with the #35 roller chain. It is not as robust as the 1/2” pitch and is suitable for applications that require less power or torque.

6.35mm pitch, also known as 3/16” pitch, is the smallest of the three common pitches. This pitch is used with the #41 roller chain. It is the least robust of the three pitches and is suitable for applications that require very low power or torque.

Factors to Consider When Selecting a Chain Sprocket

In addition to pitch, there are several other factors to consider when selecting a chain sprocket. These include sprocket material, sprocket bore size, sprocket hub type, and sprocket teeth type. The selection of a chain sprocket must also take into account the application requirements and the capabilities of the drive system.

Advantages of Chain Sprockets

Chain sprockets offer several advantages over other types of power transmission components. They are reliable, robust, and can be used for a variety of applications. They are also relatively easy to install and maintain.
