CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS

CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS is the initial malleable iron chain to be employed extensively for industry-wide applications. It is a lightweight, low cost chain obtainable in a complete selection of sizes and can be used in a wide variety of applications where light and moderate loads are carried at gradual or intermediate speeds in fairly clean atmospheres. Constructed of Conveyor Chain one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is easy to assemble and to disassemble. Individual links are inserted in one aspect, at the correct angle, as illustrated. When fully inserted, the link is lowered to the same plane as the rest of the chain and turns into an interlock chain segment until it really is once again raised to the correct position and detached.
Where simply no take-up is available in a chain application, properly pitched coupler links, attached in pairs with pin and cotter, can be utilized to join ends right into a continuous chain with at the least slack.
Detachable Chain operates with the closed side of the hook riding next to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the path of travel is usually in the direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the direction of travel is usually in the direction of the end bar.
The Detachable chain is manufactured inside our cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). Tensile strengths of Promal links range between 880 to 21,250 pounds. Two link styles are also obtainable: Style •A” includes a plain hook and fulfills regular service requirements; Style “B” includes a ribbed hook more ideal for heavy-duty services. All Detachable links are precision made to standard chain industry specs and are interchangeable with other producers’ chain links.
The pitch range of our Detachable Chain, 0.902 to 4.063 inches, satisfies a multitude of detachable applications. A finish selection of attachment designs emerges. Brutaloy or cast steel sprockets can be found for each detachable pitch size.
Material:
Detachable Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It really is furnished with carbon steel high temperature treated pins and carbon metal case hardened bushings as regular. However, stainless steel pins and bushings could be provided when specific.
