ANSI & BS Straight Sidebar Chains

ANSI & BS Straight Sidebar Chains

​CAN-AM Straight Sidebar roller chains are identical to standard ANSI & BS roller chains except for straight side plates. The main usage is conveyor applications where a flat side plate is required. Straight sidebar chains provide a higher fatigue resistance than their standard counterparts. Check our ANSI & BS roller chain pages for more technical information.

  • Increased strength, fatigue & chain service life
  • Commonly used in conveyor applications
  • Can be used on standard ANSI & BS roller chain sprockets

Features

​​Solid Rollers​​

​​Solid rollers, allows for smooth rotation on the bushing, minimising the impact load as the chain engages the sprocket tooth.

​​Heat Treatment​​

​​Heat treating ensures consistent quality in all chain components resulting in optimum toughness and wear resistance.

​​Pre-Lubrication​​

​​Hot dipped in special lubricant ensuring all load bearing surfaces are protected increasing wear life of the chain.

​​Shot-Peened Parts​​

​​All chain rollers and link plates are shot-peened for greater fatigue strength.

​​Factory Preloading​​

​​Preloaded during assembly, minimising initial elongation of the chain.

Dimensionally​ Identical

​CAN-AM roller chains are manufactured to ANSI & BS standards & are directly inter-changeable with other brands.
