Roller Chain Size Chart

Here we have put in order some of the most asked for roller chain configurations and sizes to steer your search for the roller chain that matches your specific needs in the right direction. Roller chain sizes and standards vary drastically from industry to industry and from one type of equipment to another. We have the most extensive roller chain size chart out there, showcasing up to twelve strand roller chains! At times, it may be challenging not to make a mistake buying a replacement roller chain if you don't know the size standard name it goes by in the ANSI or ISO standards or the exact roller chain dimensions, such as overall width, roller width and diameter, and plate height and thickness. The roller chain size charts below will help ensure you purchase the chain that suits your machinery best and provides the strength or load carrying capacity required by your specific manufacturing process.

USA Roller Chain and Sprockets is one of the nation’s largest suppliers of roller chain and industrial PT components. Below is our Roller Chain Size Chart that shows a few of the different sizes we have, but our inventory is not limited to the roller chain size charts. Please note that each size under the "Chain Size" column is a clickable link to that specific roller chain size category so you can see the different qualities we offer (Economy, General Duty Plus and Premier) along with the pricing. You can find our roller chains all around the world in different applications such as food, beverage, conveyors, drive units, oil, and many more. Let us show you the difference between a tier-one chain supplier and what else is out there!

Identifying your roller chain can be difficult, we created the below video to help you identify what chain you have to compare to the chain sizes below. Please note if you don't see your chain size take a look at our metric roller chain size chart or give us a call!


The core function of a roller chain is to transfer energy from one point to another to the highest degree. A Roller chain is especially useful in applications that require the transfer of energy to be consistent over a long period of time, or where a shift in direction from linear to rotary is needed, and simply for moving objects from one point to another. Our chains offer superior transmission of energy and function with features such as solid bushings, solid rollers, heat-treated components, and factory pre-loading. View our premium roller chain selection to learn more about our chains or watch the below video.


Sizing the right roller chain for your application comes down to a few key factors:
  • Tensile Strength - The tensile strength of a roller chain is the rating that represents the force required for breaking the chain. There are three different tensile strength values; minimum, average, and ultimate. The minimum tensile strength is the lowest value of breakage across several testes done on the chain, while the average tensile strength is the median breaking point between the test, and the ultimate tensile strength is the highest load that any particular chain within the tests was able to withstand. Not all roller chains possess the same strengths even from the same manufacture and batch. Almost every manufactures will display the tensile strength as the "ultimate tensile strength" to pose that theirs is stronger than a particular competitor however, we typically display our tensile strength ratings as the minimum tensile strength so undersized and safety factor calculations can be done accurately.
  • Working Load - The working load is the strength measurement needed when sizing a roller chain for an application. This is the recommended load for a chain with several factors in play. Sizing a roller chain off of tensile strength alone is not only dangerous but will disappoint when it comes to the desired service factor.
  • Application Conditions - It is important to take a look at certain conditions such as temperature, corrosion, abrasion, and hours in operation. Standard roller chains are manufactured from carbon steel, meaning that their temperature range is limited and they will corrode in abrasive and corrosive applications. For high and low-temperature applications as well as corrosive and abrasive applications, we supply problem solver roller chains that will meet individual application requirements. For dirty or dusty applications we also supply sealed o-ring chains to keep lubricants in and corrosion out, check out our complete roller chain line by clicking here! Additionally, our corrosion resistant roller chains can be found here.
  • Speeds/ Torque - Each roller chain has a speed and torque limit. To get this information contact our customer service team with your chain size and we will provide documents with this information.
  • Dimensional Requirments - Sometimes applications can be restricted on space requirements, when picking a roller chain size it is important to not go outside of your applications specific dimensional circle allowed for the chain. We also stock miniature roller chains for highly compact roller chain applications.


Single-Strand Roller Chain Size Chart

Bucket Elevator

Single strand roller chains are also commonly called simplex roller chains, unlike the other guys who supply chains that are just hot-dipped and heat-treated we offer roller chains with additional performance-driven features such as solid bushings and solid rollers, shot-peened components, and factory pre-loading to dramatically reduce chain stretch.

Triple Strand Roller Chain Size Chart


Triple strand roller chains, also commonly known as triplex chains offer superior strength and are made for some heavy-duty applications. We supply these chains in applications such as drilling, pump, high-torque, mixers, and wastewater. Having three sets of rollers that come into contact with each sprocket tooth pitch means that it has nearly three times the capacity to transfer energy from one point to another.

Single Strand Heavy-Duty Roller Chain Size Chart


Simplex heavy-duty roller chains differ by having a thicker side plate. This added material means that the chain can withstand higher shock-loads and are ideal for applications such as heavy equipment, agricultural machinery, grills, and more. The single-strand heavy roller chains are capable of running on the same sprockets as standard roller chains.

Double-Strand Heavy Roller Chain Size Chart

Double-strand heavy roller chains are also commonly referred to as duplex heavy chains and offer superior strength and shock load resistance when compared to their simplex counterpart. Having double the side plates and double the number of rollers that come into contact with each sprocket tooth-pitch means that these chains have nearly double the strength!
