Product Information
Rotary heavy duty cranked link chains chains were developed mainly for chain drive applications involving extremely heavy loads or particularly adverse operating conditions. Chains of the type are particularly resistant to violent shocks, wear and intense operating conditions, and have consequently enjoyed increasing success in a wide variety of applications in recent years.
Generally, rotary chain dimensions are standardized under ISO 3512, ANSI B 29.10 and DIN 8182. One significant advantage of rotary chains is definitely that their links are built to the same design, making it easier to lengthen or shorten the chains when needed. They have another benefit over regular roller chains – all links are at the mercy of the same level of wear.
ELITE rotary chains with cranked links are fitted with cotter pins. The chain plates are available in naturally hardened metal or special tempered metal, according to the expected mechanical load. Chains put through incredibly high loads are fitted with induction-hardened pins, producing them not only extremely tough, but also giving them the highest possible level of surface hardness.
