900 SERIES PINTLE CHAINS, sometimes known as “sugar mill” or “intermediate carrier chain” can be used extensively in sugar mills. Multiple strands of 900 Pintle Chain, available with a couple of holes per link, can be fitted with overlapping beaded carrier slats to form a continuous apron conveyor for intermediate carrier assistance.
The pin holes at the closed end of the 900 Class hyperlink are given with smooth bushings which are press-fitted into the links and keyed into place. The bushings are renewable and can be driven out and replaced if they become worn. 900 Class Pintle Chain is designed with dual barrels, one on each side of the open end of the links, to accommodate double sprockets. The purpose of this driving method is to remove the possibility of materials build-up in the sprocket contact area, which frequently causes the chain to leap the sprocket. Heavy ribs rigidly reinforce these generating barrels.
Our 900 Class chain links, with tensile power from 22,500 to 32,500 pounds, are available with large sliding areas to reduce chain wear and prolong chain life. Broad wearing surfaces and weighty cross sections team up to provide a considerable link which is made according to manufacturer’s specifications and may perfectly replace links created by other Transmission Drive Chain manufacturers.
Brutaloy sprockets for 900 Class Pintle Chain are plentiful in 3.170 inches. 900 Class Pintle Chain should only be allowed to travel in one direction; links should run in direction of their shut narrow end.
Available in cottered construction only, 900 Class Chain can be assembled with T-headed pins which are locked into place by two lugs cast upon the ends of the traveling barrels to prevent pin rotation. Pin rotation during procedure would result in wear within the bushing. Both the head of the pin and the cottered end of the pin are guarded by cast lugs on the barrel end of the links.
Material
900 Class Pintle Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It is furnished with carbon steel heat treated pins and carbon steel case hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless pins and bushings can be provided when specified.
