CASTING DETACHABLE CHAINS is the initial malleable iron chain to be used extensively meant for industry-wide applications. It is a lightweight, low cost chain available in a complete selection of sizes and can be utilized in a wide selection of applications where light and moderate loads are carried at slow or intermediate agricultural Chain speeds in fairly clean atmospheres. Made of one-piece, interconnecting links, Detachable Chain is simple to assemble and to disassemble. Individual links are inserted in one aspect, at the proper angle, as illustrated. When fully inserted, the link is reduced to the same plane as the rest of the chain and becomes an interlock chain segment until it is again elevated to the correct angle and detached.
Where no take-up is available in a chain application, properly pitched coupler links, attached in pairs with pin and cotter, can be utilized to become listed on ends into a continuous chain with a minimum of slack.
Detachable Chain operates with the closed side of the hook riding next to the sprocket wheel. For drive applications, the direction of travel is usually in direction of the hook; for conveyorand elevator applications, the path of travel is 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 from 880 to 21,250 pounds. Two link styles are also available: Style •A” includes a ordinary hook and fulfills regular services requirements; Style “B” has a ribbed hook more suitable for heavy-duty assistance. All Detachable links are precision made to standard chain industry specifications and are interchangeable with other manufacturers’ chain links.
The pitch selection of our Detachable Chain, 0.902 to 4.063 inches, satisfies a multitude of detachable applications. A total range of attachment designs is offered. 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 heat treated pins and carbon steel case hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless pins and bushings can be provided when specific.
