Leaf Chain Pitch Sizes and Their Applications

Leaf Chain

Leaf chains are a type of roller chain that are commonly used in industrial machinery and equipment. They consist of plates that are linked together by pins and rollers, and are often used in applications where high strength and precision are required. One of the key factors that determines the performance of a is its pitch size. In this article, we will take a closer look at different leaf chain pitch sizes and their applications.

Pitch Size Overview

The pitch size of a leaf chain refers to the distance between the centers of adjacent pins. Leaf chains are available in a range of pitch sizes, typically ranging from 3/8¡± to 3¡±. The most common pitch sizes are 1/2¡±, 5/8¡±, 3/4¡±, and 1¡±.

Applications of Small Pitch Leaf Chains

Small pitch leaf chains, typically those with a pitch size of 3/8¡± or 1/2¡±, are commonly used in applications where space is limited and where high precision is required. For example, they are often used in textile machinery, printing presses, and packaging equipment.

Applications of Medium Pitch Leaf Chains

Medium pitch leaf chains, typically those with a pitch size of 5/8¡± or 3/4¡±, are commonly used in applications where moderate loads and speeds are required. They are often used in agricultural equipment, construction machinery, and material handling equipment.

Applications of Large Pitch Leaf Chains

Large pitch leaf chains, typically those with a pitch size of 1¡± or larger, are commonly used in applications where heavy loads and slow speeds are required. For example, they are often used in mining equipment, oil field equipment, and marine applications.

Custom Leaf Chains

In addition to standard leaf chains, custom leaf chains can also be manufactured to meet specific application requirements. This includes chains with non-standard pitch sizes, as well as chains with custom attachments or coatings.
