CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS may be the first malleable iron chain to be used extensively for industry-wide applications. It really is a light-weight, low cost chain available in a complete range of sizes and can be utilized in a wide variety of applications where light and moderate loads are carried at sluggish or intermediate speeds in relatively clean atmospheres. Constructed of one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is simple to assemble and to disassemble. Individual links are inserted from one side, at the correct position, as illustrated. When completely inserted, the hyperlink is reduced to the same plane as the rest of the chain and turns into an interlock chain segment until it really is again elevated to the correct position and detached.
Where simply no take-up comes in a chain application, correctly pitched coupler links, attached in pairs with pin and cotter, can be used to become listed on ends into a continuous chain with a minimum of slack.
Detachable Chain operates with the closed aspect of the hook riding following to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the direction of travel can be in direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the direction of travel is in direction of the finish bar.
The Detachable chain is manufactured in our cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). Tensile strengths of Promal links range from 880 to 21,250 pounds. Two link styles are also obtainable: Style •A” includes a simple hook and fulfills regular services requirements; Style “B” includes a ribbed hook more suitable for heavy-duty program. All Detachable links are precision designed to regular chain industry specifications and so are interchangeable with other producers’ chain links.
The pitch range of our Detachable Chain, 0.902 to 4.063 inches, satisfies a wide variety of detachable applications. A total range of attachment designs is offered. Stainless Steel Chain Brutaloy or cast steel sprockets are available for every detachable pitch size.
Detachable Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It really is furnished with carbon metal warmth treated pins and carbon steel case hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless steel pins and bushings could be provided when specific.
