CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS may be the initial malleable iron chain to be employed extensively for industry-wide applications. It is a light-weight, low cost chain obtainable in a complete selection of sizes and can be used in a wide selection of Stainless Steel Chain applications where light and medium loads are carried at slow or intermediate speeds in relatively clean atmospheres. Constructed of one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is easy to assemble and to disassemble. Individual links are inserted in one aspect, at the proper position, as illustrated. When completely inserted, the link is reduced to the same plane as the rest of the chain and turns into an interlock chain segment until it is again raised to the proper 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 used to become listed on ends right into a continuous chain with at the least slack.
Detachable Chain operates with the closed aspect of the hook riding next to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the direction of travel can be in direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the path of travel is usually in direction of the finish 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 available: Style •A” includes a simple hook and fulfills standard services requirements; Style “B” has a ribbed hook more suitable for heavy-duty support. All Detachable links are precision made to standard chain industry specs and are interchangeable with other manufacturers’ chain links.
The pitch range of our Detachable Chain, 0.902 to 4.063 inches, satisfies a wide variety of detachable applications. A total selection of attachment styles emerges. Brutaloy or cast metal sprockets can be found for every detachable pitch size.
Material:
Detachable Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It really is furnished with carbon metal warmth treated pins and carbon metal case hardened bushings as regular. However, stainless steel pins and bushings can be provided when specified.
