The basic division of sprockets is the division into wheels:
sprocket without hub
sprocket with hub.
Chain wheels without hub
As for the hubless sprockets, they have the usual technological hole usually used to seat it on a shaft, the rotation of which will transmit power. Chain wheels find their application mainly in chain drives and in conveyors. It is a subassembly of many machines and devices used in various industries and production. The type of steel they are made of is important sprockets. The better the quality of the steel, the longer the chain wheel will be able to work and fail-safe. As there are single-row, double-row and three-row chains, the same applies to the chain driving wheels. The next division of sprockets will therefore be:
single row sprocket,
double row chain wheel,
three-row sprocket and with more rows.
Chain wheels with hub
The second type of sprockets differs from the first in that it is equipped with a rotating hub. This wheel performs similar functions to a wheel without a hub, the only difference is that the chain wheel can rotate when the shaft on which it is mounted is stationary. Here, too, there is a division into single-row, double-row and three-row sprocket wheel with hub.
Examples of sprockets
We can distinguish the following products in the field of sprockets, depending on the needs, the type of device in which it will work and other factors:
