  • Super (Heavy Duty) Drive Chains

Super Roller Chain

Three basic dimensions are the same as RS Roller Chain, and the smaller plate waist gives the chain a 40% higher maximum allowable.

Suitable for situations where RS Roller Chain would suffer fatigue failure, and also able to use one size smaller RS Roller Chain.

Maximum allowable has been improved 5-10% over previous Super Chain with the December 2016 upgrade.

Basic 3 dimensions: pitch, roller diameter and width between inner link plate

Super Roller Chain

1. Features/Applications

Compared to RS Roller Chain, kW ratings and shock absorption are greater, enabling the use of a chain 1 size smaller. Fatigue strength is 40% higher than RS Roller Chain. Ideal for steel facilities, automotive manufacturing facilities, environmental devices, agricultural machinery, etc.

2. Caution

  • Super Roller Chains are designed for low to medium speed transmission. RS Roller Chain should be used for higher speed ranges that do not appear in the kW rating tables.
  • Standard RS sprockets can be used for both single and multi-strand chains.
  • Consider Tough Tooth sprockets, which are optimal for Heavy Duty Chain.
