Hello people, I have a serious design problem for designing a sprocket-chain system. I want to know that can three sprockets as in picture (in attachment) can be rolled by a chain? The main concern is for middle sprocket it have few teeth above and few teeth in bottom connected to chain. The other two sprockets (left one and right one) have maximum teeth connected with chain (In "C" and "Ɔ" shape as you can see in picture). The right sprocket will be connected to motor shaft (Motor have 16kg torque (Rotational force)). The middle and right sprocket will be connected to load shafts, both will need 8-8kg torque to be rolled. So if there is only two sprocket and chain (which is common in most applications) then there will be no problem to roll two sprocket. But the problem here is that THE MIDDLE SPROCKET. Can this middle sprocket be run well in this three sprocket-chain system as in first pic. The sprocket will need 8kg torque to roll. So can anyone help me out to tell that can this MIDDLE sprocket be run well in this three sprocket-chain system ?? I will be very sad if it wont run. If it wont run can you give any open mind idea to run this kind of system. An added option to answer is that if there are four sprocket in the chain in place of three as in first pic can this four sprocket-chain system will be able to run well ?? Your any opinion and solution will be a lot welcomed. Thanks in advance.
