Poly Chain® GT®2 Sprockets


Poly Chain® GT®2 Sprockets

Markets/Applications
Use with Poly Chain GT2, Poly Chain GT or Poly Chain GT Carbon Belts.

Features/Advantages

  • Full split in bushing allows easy installation and removal.

  • Precise sprocket design produces positive, press fit to shaft.

  • Smaller, narrower sprockets save shaft space, keep the load closer to bearing and extend life of reducer.

  • Poly Chain GT2 sprockets keep overhung load below manufacturers recommendation.

  • Sprockets are precision manufactured and static balanced.

Notes
Sprockets with 90 or more grooves do not have flanges.

Sprocket part numbers are comprised of pitch, number of grooves and width. For example; part number 8MX-48S-12 denotes 8mm pitch, 48 grooves, “S” for sprocket and 12mm width.

On a sprocket, pitch is the distance between groove centers and is measured on the pitch circle of the sprocket. The pitch circle of the sprocket coincides with the pitch line of the belt mating with it. The pitch diameter of the sprocket is always greater than its outside diameter.

Details shown which do not affect drive function or overall weight may be changed without notification.

Abbreviations used for sprocket materials: GI=Gray Iron, DI=Ductile Iron, SiS=Sintered Steel, ST=Steel, CI=Cast Iron.

WARNING: Do NOT use these sprockets with rim speeds in excess of 6,500 fpm.


Poly Chain® GT®2 Sprockets - Stainless Steel

Markets/Applications
Use with Poly Chain GT2 belts. Stainless steel Poly Chain GT2 sprockets are ideal for the food and beverage market or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.

Features/Advantages

  • Cost effective alternative to stainless roller chain drives.

  • Taper-Lock® bushings save shaft space allowing load to be closer to bearing.

  • Can be used with rim speeds of 8,000 fpm.

Notes
Sprocket part numbers are comprised of pitch, number of grooves and width. For example; part number SS8MX-28S-12 denotes "SS" for stainless steel, 8mm pitch, 28 grooves, “S” for sprocket and 12mm width.

On a sprocket, pitch is the distance between groove centers and is measured on the pitch circle of the sprocket. The pitch circle of the sprocket coincides with the pitch line of the belt mating with it. The pitch diameter of the sprocket is always greater than its outside diameter.

Poly Chain® GT®2 Sprockets - Re-Bore

Markets/Applications
Use with Poly Chain GT2, Poly Chain GT or Poly Chain GT Carbon Belts.

Features/Advantages

  • Re-work services have turnaround time.

  • Precise sprocket design produces positive press fit to shaft.

  • Precision manufactured and static balanced.

Rework applies only to plain bore sprockets. When ordering specify the part number and rework needed.

Rework options are as follows:
BTS = Bored to Size and includes Standard Keyway and set screws
PB = Plain Bore. No Keyway. No Set Screws.
KWY = Keyway only
SS = Set Screw only.

Orders must be placed through the Made-to-Order Metals team and should not be placed on PowerPro®.
