100 Oilfield Roller Chain


100 Oilfield Roller Chain

#100 Oilfield Roller Chain is manufactured according to ANSI Standards dimensionally but is API Certified to run in oilfield applications. This API 100 roller chain features solid bushings, rollers, and wide waist side plates for optimal performance and maximum fatigue strength. API-certified chains undergo certain processes and manufacturing techniques that appease the American Petroleum Institute (API) for optimal performance and longevity in oilfield applications, and this is what separates an API Certified Chain versus just an ANSI chain.
