(FR) APPAREIL TENDEUR DE CHAINE ENCLIQUETABLE ET PROCEDE
Abstract
(EN)
A chain tensioner for tensioning a chain mounted on a support structure. The tensioner (10) includes a bracket (46) secured to a support structure (46) and a pin (56) connected to the bracket. Further included is an elongated shoe (26) having first and second enlarged ends (28, 30) an exterior wall surface (34) extending the length thereof to engage a chain (14), a blade spring (48) disposed within the shoe (26) generally parallel to the wall surface (34), a generally semi-cylindrical indentation (58) extending through the first end (28) to engage the pin (56).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un tendeur de chaîne conçu pour tendre une chaîne montée sur une structure de support. Le tendeur (10) comporte une patte d'attache (46) fixée à une structure de support (46) et à laquelle est relié un axe (56). Il comprend également un sabot allongé (26) présentant une première et une seconde extrémités évasées (28, 30), une surface (34) de paroi extérieure augmentant la longueur dudit sabot destinée à venir en contact avec une chaîne (14), un ressort à lame (48) placé dans le sabot (26), généralement parallèlement à la surface (34) de paroi, une indentation de forme générale semi-cylindrique (58) s'étendant dans la première extrémité pour s'encliqueter avec l'axe (56).
