Detailed Description for Type A Sprockets



      A sprocket or sprocket-wheel is a profiled wheel with teeth, cogs, or even sprockets that mesh with a chain, track or other perforated or indented material.The name 'sprocket' applies generally to any wheel upon which radial projections engage a chain passing over it. It is distinguished from a gear in that sprockets are never meshed together directly, and differs from a pulley in that sprockets have teeth and pulleys are smooth.

Sprockets are used in bicycles, motorcycles, cars, tracked vehicles, and other machinery either to transmit rotary motion between two shafts where gears are unsuitable or to impart linear motion to a track, tape etc. 




Features & Benefits of Type A Sprocket:

* No hub projection

* High quality, high carbon steel, Solid Plate

* Lasts longer than sprockets made from low carbon steel


Sprocket Dimensions:


 Bottom diameter/caliper diameter (B.D./C.D): This is the distance across the sprocket from the bottom of opposite tooth spaces. If the sprocket has an odd number of teeth there will be no exact opposite space, so caliper diameters are the measurement across from tooth spaces nearly opposite.


Number of teeth: This is the account of teeth located on the sprocket.


Outside diameter (O.D.): The measurement from the tip of the sprocket tooth across to the corresponding point directly opposite the sprocket.


Hub diameter (H.D.): In sprockets utilizing an integral hub, this is the distance through the hub's center bore.


Sprocket bore (S.B.): For hubbed sprockets, this is the width across the shaft hole of the hub.


Length through bore (L.T.B.): This is the distance within the bored hole on hubbed sprockets. This will be of larger value than the face width, and must be long enough to withstand torque from the shaft.


Inside diameter (I.D.): In sprockets that do not utilize a hub, this is the distance across the inner edges.


Pitch: This is the curved distance from the center of one sprocket tooth to the adjacent tooth center.


Pitch diameter (P.D.): A measurement across the sprocket from tooth center to corresponding tooth center. In instances where there is no direct opposite, the nearest tooth center dictates measurement.


Face width (F.W.): This is the value of the distance across the thinnest part of the sprocket. This is kept from its maximum to allow low-friction chain engagement, but also from its minimum to ensure proper working load.
