CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS may be the initial malleable iron chain to be employed extensively designed for industry-wide applications. It is a light-weight, low cost chain obtainable in a full range of sizes and can be used in a wide selection of applications where light and medium loads are carried at gradual or intermediate speeds in fairly clean atmospheres. Made of one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is simple to assemble and also to disassemble. Individual links are inserted from one part, at the correct position, as illustrated. When completely inserted, the link is lowered to the same plane as all of those other chain and turns into an interlock chain segment until it really is once again raised to the proper 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 part of the hook riding following to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the Auto Chain direction of travel is usually in direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the path of travel is definitely in the 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 between 880 to 21,250 pounds. Two link designs are also obtainable: Style •A” includes a basic hook and fulfills standard program requirements; Style “B” includes a ribbed hook more ideal for heavy-duty assistance. 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 total selection of attachment designs emerges. Brutaloy or cast metal sprockets are available for each detachable pitch size.
Detachable Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It really is furnished with carbon steel high temperature treated pins and carbon steel case hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless steel pins and bushings can be provided when specific.
