Double-Pitch Power Transmission Chain

Produced to ANSI B29.3 standards, Diamond® Double-Pitch Power Transmission chain has figure-eight style linkplates with twice the pitch of our Standard Series chain. This increase in pitch means that only half of the component parts are required per foot of chain, which can significantly lower the cost.

And who deserves to save money more than a farmer? Double-Pitch Power Transmission chain is commonly used in the agriculture industry – such as citrus sorters, for example.

Features & Benefits

  • Materials

    The Diamond Difference begins with raw materials that meet exacting standards for metal grade, mechanical properties, carbon and alloy content to ensure minimization of impurities that impact tensile and fatigue strength.

  • Fabrication

    Diamond designs each component to exacting dimensional standards for optimal performance. Precision ground pins, seamless rollers and extruded solid bushings work in concert with linkplates created using a proprietary multi-stage process to maximize the bearing area and thus enable the superior performance of Diamond® Double-Pitch Power Transmission roller chain. Double-Pitch Power Transmission chain features figure-eight-style linkplates that are twice the size of Standard Series linkplates.

  • Heat Treatment

    Strict control of atmosphere, time and temperature optimize the material properties – increasing strength, durability and wear resistance.

  • Shot Peening

    Proprietary shot peening equipment was developed specifically to ensure consistent intensity and coverage of components. Shot peening adds a layer of compressive stress that helps components resist fatigue failure when exposed to repeated high loads.

  • Lubrication

    We use a proprietary lubrication process on all lubricated chains for enhanced corrosion protection and extended wear life.

  • Preloading

    Following assembly, all chains are preloaded to firmly seat the pins and bushings. This is to reduce initial run-in and extend the wear life of the chain.
