Steel Detachable Chain Spro

Steel Detachable Chain Spro

Steel Detachable Chain Spro

Not a big deal, but can someone steer me to a site that would have dimensions for the sprockets used on steel detachable chain, (also called Flat chain)
This chain was commonly used for farm elevators, drive chains for planters, and manure spreaders among many other applications.

I've found a site that shows the dimensions for the Chain, but not the sprockets, and upon more searching found that the B29.300 Standard is available but for quite a bit of money.

Aren't these things in some manufacturer's catalog like roller chain is in Boston or Morse catalogs?

RE: Steel Detachable Chain Spro

McMaster carr actually might be able to steer you into some data.  Baum Hydraulics in Nebraska would definitely have this.

RE: Steel Detachable Chain Spro

Martin Sprocket made the flat shain sprockets that I have used in the past.  They have a slim selection, but you should be able to get some information from them.


RE: Steel Detachable Chain Spro

You could try www.pixeuro.com or alternatively I have a catalogue I could send to you?

RE: Steel Detachable Chain Spro

Thanks, Ice

That's what I was looking for.
