ANSI Standard
Attachment Chain Series



ANSI Standard Attachment Chain


For standard applications, Tsubaki can provide you with an outstanding Attachment Chain. This chain is manufactured in accordance with the American Standards.

This chain is based on standard ANSI roller chain with attachments added for conveying.

Key Features

  • Due to the small pitch of these chains, the drive design is smaller.
  • Usually sprockets with a large number of teeth are used. The chain speed does not vary significantly as the chain engages with sprockets. With less impact, there is also less noise generated as a result of the impact between the roller and sprocket tooth.
  • These chains may be used for high speed conveyor applications.
  • A wide variety of standard and special attachments are available for this chain series.

Customised Pre-Lubrication Service
Proper lubrication is the key to extend the life and improve the performance of a chain. In order to get the best performance in general applications (-10°C to +60°C), all ANSI drive chains are pre-lubricated. ANSI attachment chains however are NOT prelubricated, but have been treated with rust preventive oil for protection and therefore need to be lubricated before the chain is installed. The reason Tsubaki does not pre-lubricate ANSI attachment chains is due to the fact that attachment chains often have to function in various environments where standard lubrication cannot be used.

For special applications, Tsubaki can provide attachment chains which are pre-lubricated with a special lubricant:

  • High temperature
  • Low temperature
  • Food safe
  • Outdoor exposure
  • Dusty environment

Please consult Tsubaki for more detailed information.

Application Example
ANSI Standard attachment chain is used for short conveyor runs (usually less than 10 metres) and for conveying small and reasonably lightweight products. This chain is also suitable for conditions where noise levels need to be kept to a minimum.
