## What is the difference between 50 and 530 chain?

Nowadays there is little to no difference between 50 and 530 chains, but the difference originated from where 50 chains were used in industrial applications whereas 530 chains were used primarily for transport and vehicles. Therefore 50 chains were traditionally more durable but heavier and more expensive.

## What is the strongest roller chain?

Roller chains are made according to the impact force of the load to be operated. Going by the average tensile strength and weight to strength ratio, the 200HR ANSI Standard Heavy Series roller chain is the strongest at 113,759 lbs and 12.835 lbs per ft.

## How do I know my bike chain size?

L = 2 (C) + (F/4 + R/4 + 1) L = Length ? your chain length in inches (rounded to the nearest inch). C = Chain stay ? the distance between the middle of the crank to the rear axle. Measure to the closest ? and convert this to decimal form.

## Can I use a 520 sprocket with 525 chain?

Would the 520 front sprocket fit on a 525 chain without problems occurring? A. No way. Get it exchanged for the correct size or you could find your chain jumping the sprocket and smashing up the engine casings ? or even your foot!

## What does RS mean in roller chain?

Each manufacturer adds its own identification stamp prior to the chain number. For Tsubaki, “RS” is the identifier (for example, RS80, RS100). The use of “RS” as an identifier has spread widely; it has become the standard symbol for power transmission roller chains.

## How strong is 40 chain?

With a high-tensile strength of 3,700 LBS this chain possess an excellent side-to-strength ratio, as well as weight-to-strength ratio (Chain weighs 0.41 LBS/ FT). #40 roller chain is one of the most common chain sizes used around the world today because of its versatility and productive nature.

## Is 40 roller chain the same as 420?

Difference between 420 chain and 40 chain

Both 420 and 40 chains have the same tensile strength and pitch, the only major difference is the width between the inner plates of #40 is larger than #420 by 1/16?.

## What grade chain is the strongest?

Grade 100. Next to Grade 120, Grade 100 chain is the strongest type of chain offered by most industrial hardware suppliers. It is 25 percent stronger than Grade 80, making it the best choice for extremely heavy overhead lifting use and other extreme applications.

## How do I know my roller chain size?

Most roller chain has the size stamped right into the side plates. You may see something like “40”, “C2080H” or “10B” stamped in, which the industry number that represents the chain size. Old chains will most likely need to be cleaned in order to see the size.

## What chain is hardest to cut?

The Best Chain Has Hexagonal or Square Links

A heavy-duty, hardened steel chain with hexagonal links thwarts nearly every thief with a bolt cutter. Hexagonal links (or square or trapezoidal) make it impossible for bolt cutters to get a grip.

## What is a Grade 100 chain?

Grade 100 Chain is a Premium quality high strength alloy steel. Grade 100 Chain has a 20 percent increase in working load limit as compared to a similar size chain in Grade 80. This allows you to reduce the size of the chain depending on the working load needed.

## What is the strongest chain you can buy?

Metal type: The strongest metals for chains are gold and platinum. White gold with rhodium plating can have added strength. Sterling silver chains are also pretty strong, but they require more upkeep to prevent tarnish.

## What is grade 70 chain used for?

Also known as ?Transport Chain,? Grade 70 chain is most commonly used for tie down and load securement applications for trucking and other cargo. While Grade 30 and 43 chain can also be used for load securement, Grade 70 chain provides a stronger, more durable option with a much higher strength-to-weight ratio.
