Double capacity roller chains are the strongest series of chain that is still operational when paired with an ANSI standard sprocket.
Features of Double Capacity Roller Chains include:
- Wide-waist side plates
- Hardened pins
- Solid bushings
- Solid rollers
- Shot-peened components
- Double the side plates
These chains have twice the ultimate strength as a standard roller chain. Double capacity roller chain is used in hoist/lifting applications and heavy-duty drive applications requiring slow to medium speed.
Chain speed should be less than 50m/min. Double Capacity Chains come in three options: DC, TC & FC. DC Chains have double the outer plates of standard chain (4). TC chains have triple (6) and FC chains have four (8).
