CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS may be the 1st malleable iron chain to be employed extensively pertaining to industry-wide applications. It really is a light-weight, low priced chain available in a full range of sizes and can be used in a wide selection of applications where light and moderate loads are carried at slow or intermediate speeds in relatively clean atmospheres. Made of one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is easy to assemble and to disassemble. Individual links are inserted from one part, at the proper position, as illustrated. When fully inserted, the hyperlink is reduced to the same plane as the rest of the chain and becomes an interlock chain segment until it really is again raised to the correct position and detached.
Where no take-up is available in a chain application, correctly pitched coupler links, attached in pairs with pin and cotter, can be utilized to become listed on ends right into a continuous chain with at the least slack.
Detachable Chain operates with the closed part of the hook riding following to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the Leaf Chain direction of travel is certainly in the direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the path of travel is usually in the direction of the end bar.
The Detachable chain is produced in our cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). Tensile strengths of Promal links range between 880 to 21,250 pounds. Two link designs are also offered: Style •A” includes a basic hook and fulfills regular support requirements; Style “B” includes a ribbed hook more ideal for heavy-duty program. All Detachable links are precision designed to standard chain industry specifications and so are interchangeable with various other producers’ chain links.
The pitch selection of our Detachable Chain, 0.902 to 4.063 inches, satisfies a wide variety of detachable applications. A complete selection of attachment designs is offered. Brutaloy or cast steel sprockets are available for each detachable pitch size.
Detachable Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It is furnished with carbon steel temperature treated pins and carbon metal case hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless steel pins and bushings could be provided when specified.
