CASTING Conveyor Chain Detachable CHAINS may be the first malleable iron chain to be employed extensively intended for industry-wide applications. It is a light-weight, low cost chain available in a full range of sizes and can be utilized in a wide selection of applications where light and medium loads are carried at sluggish or intermediate speeds in fairly clean atmospheres. Constructed of one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is easy to assemble and also to disassemble. Individual links are inserted from one aspect, at the correct position, as illustrated. When completely inserted, the hyperlink is reduced to the same plane as all of those other chain and becomes an interlock chain segment until it really is once again raised to the correct position and detached.
Where simply no take-up is available in a chain application, correctly pitched coupler links, attached in pairs with pin and cotter, can be used to join ends into a continuous chain with at the least slack.
Detachable Chain operates with the closed side of the hook riding next to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the path of travel is in the direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the path of travel is certainly 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 between 880 to 21,250 pounds. Two link styles are also obtainable: Style •A” has a basic hook and fulfills regular support requirements; Style “B” has a ribbed hook more ideal for heavy-duty program. All Detachable links are precision made to standard chain industry specs and are interchangeable with additional producers’ chain links.
The pitch range of our Detachable Chain, 0.902 to 4.063 inches, satisfies a multitude of detachable applications. A complete range of attachment styles 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 is furnished with carbon metal warmth treated pins and carbon steel case hardened bushings as regular. However, stainless pins and bushings could be provided when specified.
