A sprocket is a profiled wheel with teeth that mesh with a chain, track or other perforated or indented material.
The name 'sprocket' applies generally to any wheel upon which are radial projections that engage a chain passing over it.
It is distinguished from a gear in that sprockets are never meshed together directly, and differs from a pulley in that sprockets have teeth and pulleys are smooth.
They are of various designs, a maximum of efficiency being claimed for each by its originator. Sprockets typically do not have a flange. Some sprockets used with timing belts have flanges to keep the timing belt centered.
Sprockets and chains are also used for power transmission from one shaft to another where slippage is not admissible, sprocket chains being used instead of belts or ropes and sprocket-wheels instead of pulleys. They can be run at high speed and some forms of chain are so constructed as to be noiseless even at high speed.
Sprockets are teeth like projections arranged on a wheel rim to engage the links of a chain. They engage chains in many different power transmission and conveyor systems. They are mainly made of cast iron, sintered metal, and carbon steel.
Inserted sprockets are also designed to reduce noise and operation. The sprocket must be inspected once a month for wear and if the teeth are worn down or are broken they should be replaced.
They are often an economic, reliable drive system for long running, continuous drive applications with maximum absorption of shock and minimum torque loads. The sprockets and the chain must be lubricated with chain lube such as bell ray. Sprockets are most commonly used in bicycles.
