Accurately machined, medium carbon steel sprockets and precision ground ball bearings are assembled to provide a heavy duty idler for the most severe conditions. The bearings are pre-lubricated and sealed to maintain grease and exclude dirt and moisture. They aren’t re-lubricatable. The extended inner race with setscrew allows fastening to a pin or shaft without collars or spacing gadgets. In addition, it provides clearance for the chain when bolting the sprocket directly to a framework member or tensioning gadget. A small sprocket for close quarters and a more substantial one for heavier services is supplied in each pitch. If sizes other than those listed are needed, please inquire for quotation.
