900 Drive Chain SERIES PINTLE CHAINS, sometimes known as “sugar mill” or “intermediate carrier chain” can be used extensively in sugar mills. Multiple strands of 900 Pintle Chain, available with one or two holes per link, can be installed with overlapping beaded carrier slats to create a continuing apron conveyor for intermediate carrier service.
The pin holes at the closed end of the 900 Class link are given with smooth bushings which are press-fitted in to the links and keyed into place. The bushings are renewable and can be powered out and replaced if they become worn. 900 Class Pintle Chain was created with dual barrels, one on each aspect of the open end of the links, to support double sprockets. The objective of this driving method is to get rid of the possibility of material build-up in the sprocket contact area, which often causes the chain to leap the sprocket. Heavy ribs rigidly reinforce these driving barrels.
Our 900 Class chain links, with tensile strength from 22,500 to 32,500 pounds, can be found with large sliding surfaces to lessen chain wear and prolong chain life. Broad wearing surfaces and large cross sections team up to provide a substantial link which is manufactured according to manufacturer’s requirements and may perfectly replace links created by other manufacturers.
Brutaloy sprockets for 900 Class Pintle Chain are plentiful in 3.170 inches. 900 Class Pintle Chain should only be allowed to travel in a single direction; links should always run in the direction of their shut narrow end.
Obtainable in cottered construction just, 900 Class Chain is definitely assembled with T-headed pins which are locked into place by two lugs cast upon the ends of the traveling barrels to avoid pin rotation. Pin rotation during operation would lead to wear on the inside of the bushing. Both head of the pin and the cottered end of the pin are shielded by cast lugs on the barrel end of the links.
900 Class Pintle Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It is furnished with carbon metal temperature treated pins and carbon metal case hardened bushings as regular. However, stainless pins and bushings can be provided when specified.
