Morse® HV chain is ideal for applications where heavy loads (50 to 6000 horsepower) are to be transmitted at moderate to high speeds. It is also ideal where compact design is important. HV features a pin and rocker joint which reduces friction and provides pitch elongation through its rolling action. This results in a reduction of chordal action and a significant increase in horsepower capacity.
Silent chain is an inverted tooth chain offering low to moderate horsepower for applications. The exclusive rocker joint eliminates friction during chain articulation permitting high rotative speed with less wear and heat.
