Silent chain is composed of stacked rows of flat, tooth shaped driving links that mesh with sprockets having compatible tooth spaces. Silent chains contain guide links to maintain proper tracking on sprockets. Spacers and washers may also present in some silent chain constructions. The silent chain is held together by riveted pins located in each chain joint. All silent chains have these basic features but there are many different styles, designs, and configurations.
Silent chain is utilized in both power transmission and conveying applications. It is important to identify the application when considering purchasing silent chain. Silent chain is available center guided, side guided or with two center guides. It is available with single pin or two pin joints. It is important to note the pitch and width when identifying silent chain, as well as the build type. Silent chains are used in a range of demanding industrial and automotive applications, particularly those industries requiring high speeds and quiet operation.
