SENQCIA Inspire Series™ “HE” Series offset Links are manufactured in Japan in accordance with the ASME/ANSI B29.1 American roller chain standard. They offer exceptional performance and long life in a wide variety of applications. The link plates of the “HE” series are one size thicker than standard roller chains and the pins are through hardened and produced from special alloy steel for increased strength and shock load capacity.
Offset links are supplied with “flatted” connecting pins and a split cotter for ease of assembly in the field. These special purpose links allow the user to make an endless strand of roller chain from an odd number of pitches. They are also used to reduce the length of a strand by one pitch when normal chain elongation has created excess catenary sag on a roller chain drive. Care however should be taken as the offset link has significantly less load carrying capacity than the base chain itself. Each offset link is individually packaged in a sealed plastic bag.
