#240 Roller Chain

ANSI 240 chain is the largest size in the standard chain sizes made to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B29.1 standards. This type of roller chain is specifically manufactured for heavy-duty equipment, including earthmoving machinery, mixers, and mining equipment. It has a pitch (the distance between pins) of 3 inches, a roller diameter of 1.875 inches, and an inner width of 1.875 inches.
240 roller chain is constructed from high-strength carbon and alloy steel, ensuring durability and resistance to wear and fatigue through precise heat treatment and shot peening processes.
