Can someone help me identify what type of chain this is? It’s used on a Chain Wheel Gear Operator for actuating a valve. I need to order more. I was told it’s readily available at serious hardware stores but I can’t find any and don’t know what it’s called to order more.
Thanks
Sarah

I Googled “Chain Wheel Gear Operator” and found that one. There are others also.

It’s called single loop chain.

Lock link chain

Used for overhead doors and other stuff like your valve that requires chain over a sprocket to operate.

Thank you everyone for the quick responses! Not only did we not know what it was called, it was labeled with the wrong size and was confusing everyone. All set now, thanks!
