CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS

CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS may be the 1st malleable iron chain to be used extensively intended for industry-wide applications. It is a light-weight, low cost chain available in a complete range of sizes and can be used in a wide selection of applications where light and moderate loads are carried at sluggish or intermediate speeds in fairly clean Conveyor Chain atmospheres. Constructed of one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is easy to assemble and also to disassemble. Individual links are inserted from one part, at the proper position, as illustrated. When fully 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 once again elevated to the proper position and detached.
Where no take-up comes in a chain application, correctly pitched coupler links, attached in pairs with pin and cotter, can be used to join ends right into a continuous chain with a minimum of slack.
Detachable Chain operates with the closed aspect of the hook riding next to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the path of travel is definitely in direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the direction of travel can be in the direction of the end 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 offered: Style •A” includes a ordinary hook and fulfills standard assistance requirements; Style “B” includes a ribbed hook more suitable for heavy-duty services. All Detachable links are precision made to regular chain industry specs and so are interchangeable with various other manufacturers’ chain links.
The pitch selection of our Detachable Chain, 0.902 to 4.063 inches, satisfies a wide variety of detachable applications. A complete selection of attachment designs is offered. 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 is furnished with carbon metal high temperature treated pins and carbon steel case hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless pins and bushings can be provided when specified.
