RS 40 Chain with .500 Pitch, .156" Pin Diameter

Crossrod conveyor chain consists of two parallel strands of standard RS40 or RS50 chains, joined by crossrods on every link. RS40 chain is used for light loads such as conveying bread through coolers, wrappers and slicers. RS50 chain is for heavier loads. When sanitary, noncorrosive qualities are required, crossrods can be stainless steel.
The connecting pins have milled flats and fit into a D-shaped hole in the link plate to prevent pin rotation and give longer life. Chains are furnished in five-foot sections and run on standard ASME/ANSI sprockets. Removable two-pitch link sections are available for repair.
