Fully Meets ANSI Standards
Manufactured Out Of SAE 1045 Steel
Black Oxide Treated
Induction Hardened Teeth
Extremely Durable
High Quality Sprocket
Double Pitch Chain Sprockets
Available for Dual Pitch Chain with S or R rollers.
We offer a line-up for RS2040 – RF2160 with S rollers, and RF2040 – RF2100 with R rollers.
Chains that make use of S rollers build relationships almost every other tooth. Sprockets could have a longer life as chains build relationships different teeth each time the rollers rotate (when actual number of teeth is odd).
Sprocket for Double Pitch Chain
As proven in the sketch, chain rollers use different teeth on each time of revolution when each roller skip one tooth and sprocket has odd quantity of teeth. This mechanism allows expansion of sprocket lifestyle as less use and abrasion.
S roller type chain could work well with regular roller chain sprocket with an increase of than 30 teeth.

This 2042A16 sprocket is durable, exceeds in quality, and offers a long working life at an extremely great price! 2042A16 dual pitch sprockets are manufactured specifically for C2042 double pitch roller chain, have 16 teeth, and completely meet all ANSI Requirements. Additionally, this sprocket includes a share bore but we can supply the sprocket already bored out to almost any requested bore size. Something that sets this 2042A16 sprocket apart from others is that it’s Black Oxide Finished, heat treated, and is manufactured using a high quality metal. Performing this with a sprocket makes it much more durable, perform to its greatest capabilities, and last a lot longer when compared to competition. Because of our sourcing experts, partners, and engineers, these sprockets are usually in share and at an extremely great price. For prices and availability please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
Features

Our in-stock standard dual pitch sprockets are produced out of SAE-1045 case hardened metal with extra-hardened teeth and coated with dark oxide. These sprockets are really durable, high-strength, and produced to high precision tolerances. Stock double pitch sprockets include regular roller and carrier roller style, single duty sprockets are created to purchase and typically take anywhere from a couple of business days to some weeks to produce based upon our factory loads and sprocket specifics.
Standard Roller Type
Regular roller type sprockets will be the same outdoors diameter and width as the single-pitch equivalent simply with a different tooth profile to allow proper seating of the chain. On actually tooth-counts, these sprockets only engage with the chain on almost every other tooth because there are two tooth per pitch. On odd tooth counts, any provided tooth is engaged only on almost every other revolution which of training course escalates the sprocket life.
Carrier Roller Type
Carrier roller type dual pitch sprockets are cut with space cutters to permit the carrier roller to properly seat and engage with each tooth. These sprockets will have the same diameter as the ANSI single-pitch equivalent.
Single Duty Type
Single duty sprockets are produced to where every single tooth gets involved evenly on each revolution. This sprocket type has become obsolete in most applications but continues to be available.
When using dual pitch roller chain it is highly recommended if not required to use a double pitch sprocket. It is because dual pitch sprockets are produced with a special tooth profile that allows for the roller to properly seat and engage with the teeth of the sprocket. The above picture on the left may be the regular tooth profile and the photo on the right may be the special dual pitch sprocket profile. As you can see above, the double pitch sprockets tooth profile is somewhat deeper and cut differently to fully accept the dual pitch chain roller. If utilizing a standard sprocket, failure to engage will result in chain jumping in addition to excessive wear. Something important to note is that with chain sizes C2040, C2050, C2060, C2060H, C2080H, C2100H, C2120H, and C2160H when the tooth count is certainly 31 or more you can use a standard roller chain sprocket. This rule does not connect with carrier roller design chains which where the roller diameter exceeds the sidebar elevation, these chain sizes consist of C2042, C2052, C2062, C2062H, C2082H, C2102H, C2122H, and C2162H.
