WEAR LINE INDICATORS
Indicate when it is time to replace the sprockets. When the sprocket face is worn to the scribed line the sprocket needs replaced along with the chain. Wear line indicators are an easy visual tool to help guide best practices in chain sprocket and conveyor operations.
Are positioned directly above the key and provide easy placement of a lifting strap, rod or other device to make sprocket installation easier and safer. Lifting holes are provided on all sprockets unless restricted by space.
FLAME HARDENED TEETH
Webster’s automated, computer-controlled hardening process increases wear resistance and sprocket longevity. Our hardening process allows us to achieve precise hardness levels. All Webster sprockets have a minimum 40 Rc in all critical wear areas and utilize USA made 1045 steel plate.
Provided on some sprockets so that weight can be reduced. Lightening holes come standard on most bucket elevator sprockets and upon customer request unless restricted by space.
LOCKING HEAD FEATURE
Split sprockets come with a locking head feature which allow for ease of assembly. The hub holds the head of the bolt against its flat edge. This allows one tool and one person to easily torque the locking nut in place securing the sprocket to the shaft.
MACHINED CHAMFERED TEETH
All teeth are machine chamfered at a 15 degree angle on each side of the tooth to ensure proper chain and sprocket engagement. This reduces the likelihood of sprocket and sidebar scrubbing or improper chain engagement resulting in premature, unexpected failures.
