In power transmission applications, silent chain drives are capable of transmitting power with low noise, high efficiency, and reduced vibration. Speeds and loads often exceed the capability of other belts and chains. Almost all Ramsey power transmission chains utilize efficient, quiet, two-pin roller bearing joints; technology which has been shown to outperform conventional, round pin joints.* These chains can be found in a wide variety of demanding industrial applications and similar designs are used in 4 wheel drive automobiles and NASCAR racing engines.
In conveying applications, silent conveying chains provide a heat resistant, flat, durable, non-slip, conveying surface which can be customized to fit a wide range of industrial applications. Chains are designed to smoothly engage sprockets with minimal variation in the conveying surface speed. Many options are available, including: patented wear protection, single pin or two pin joint construction, link-spacer or all link constructions, attachment links, and stainless steel assemblies.
