This #60H Heavy roller chain fully meets all ANSI standards and is a durable, economically priced roller chain that has a tensile strength of 11,660lbs. The Economy Plus series roller chains feature heat-treated side plates to ensure the strength and durability of the roller chain. This roller chain also features solid rollers which will increase the performance and overall working life of the chain. The "H" designates that his chain has thicker side plates and is part of the heavy series of roller chains. Having the thicker side plate increases strength, shock load, fatigue, and the overall working life of the chain.
Roller chain links engage with matched sprocket teeth to transmit power between rotating shafts. Since there's no slippage and little stretch, chain drives can handle heavy loads and high torque.
Sizing Roller Chain and Sprockets—ANSI roller chain and sprockets have a standard ANSI number. Metric roller chain and sprockets have a standard ISO number. Only use chain and sprockets with the same number together.
