What is ANSI and Why Does it Matter?
ANSI, or the American National Standards Institute, is a non-profit organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus standards for a wide range of industries, including power transmission. ANSI standards ensure consistency and compatibility across different manufacturers, making it easier for engineers and technicians to select and maintain machinery.
In the context of roller chains, ANSI B29.1 is the standard that defines the dimensions, tolerances, and tensile strength requirements for American standard roller chains. By adhering to ANSI B29.1 standards, Nitro Chain guarantees that our roller chains will meet the highest quality expectations and provide reliable performance in even the most demanding applications.
Our Extensive Selection of ANSI Roller Chains
Our comprehensive catalog of ANSI roller chains encompasses 14 different sizes, ranging from the compact 25 size to the largest 240 size. Each size represents a gateway to a dedicated page with detailed specifications, common applications, and various chain types. We offer a wide range of chain types, including single-strand, double-strand, and triple-strand chains, to cater to a variety of power transmission needs.
Our comprehensive specifications provide you with all the critical information you need to compare chains and make an informed decision, including:
- Pitch: The distance between adjacent pins
- Inner width: The width between the inner link plates
- Roller diameter: The diameter of the rollers
- Plate height: The height of the inner plate, which is the tallest plate
- Pin diameter: The diameter of the pins
- Average tensile strength: The maximum load a chain can withstand before breaking
- Max working load: The recommended maximum load for continuous operation
