The enamel of a one pitch sprocket mesh with one tooth per sprocket. Double pitch sprockets appear like single pitch sprockets, but the chain only meshes with the other teeth. This indicates that a double-pitch sprocket has the very same number of tooth as a one-pitch sprocket, but only 50 percent of the enamel are engaged with the chain. The principal big difference is that the double pitch sprockets are cut with a specific pitch circle diameter for optimal engagement. For ep roller chains, the sprockets are the identical if the number of enamel is 32 or far more for single and double chains.
In excess of time, the sprocket enamel wear out because of to friction caused by the consistent physical contact between the sprocket tooth and the sprocket. ep manufactures wise tooth sprockets with use indicator pins. These visible wear indicators inform operators and inspectors when sprockets are even now functioning safely and securely and when they need to have to be changed.
