Conveyor roller chain is a very popular choice for material handling, automation and conveying applications. The conveyor chains come in many different styles and sizes to suit an huge range of applications. We stock a full ranges of sizes starting from #C2040 up to #C2120H.

Both conveyor roller chains have very similar dimensions except for the diameter of the roller. Standard conveyor roller chain is your conventional chain that uses a standard diameter roller that is commonly found in most ANSI chains. The oversized conveyor roller chain uses a larger diameter roller, which extends past the height of the link plates. The benefit of oversized rollers is that you have better efficiency, which is acquired by less friction since the chain can roll across a surface. If a standard conveyor roller chain is used in a similar application, then a roller chain guide is required and would create more friction.
A few example uses for both style conveyor chains are automatic packaging systems, bottle filling machines and automotive assembly line systems.
The only difference between the two conveyor roller chains are the pins. Standard uses a solid pin vs the hollow pin chain uses a hollow pin as the name says. The hollow pin was created to allow adding components to the chain such as cross-rods, custom pins or any custom attachments you may require. The only downfall is hollow pin conveyor chain strength is significantly lower compared to the standard conveyor chain.
