Stainless Steel Leaf Chain

The stainless steel leaf chain consists of staggering plates and is fixed together by rivet pins. Their manufacturing accuracy is as high as our roller chains. Leaf chains are used in applications that require strong, flexible links to transmit motion or lift. Selected steel and unique heat treatment ensure high strength and durability. The first or more numbers in the leaf chain represent the chain pitch, and the last two numbers represent the tie of the chain.

HZPT has the best prices and quality available on leaf chains with our premium and economy lines. You’ll find the right product whether you need a leaf chain for forklifts, machine tools, rolling door counterbalances, or any other application. We vet all leaf chain suppliers and products for the highest-quality, most durable leaf chains. All of our leaf chains are heavy-duty with tensile strengths that vary from thousands to tens of thousands of pounds. Our store features two types of leaf chains, the AL-series leaf chain for lighter lifting and the BL series leaf chain for more heavy-duty work. Additionally, our leaf chains meet both ANSI and ASME standards.

When you buy leaf chains from HZPT, you won’t have to reorder for a good while. We have confidence in our products. If you’re not sure what chain you need to reorder for your machine, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We get calls from customers regarding this issue all the time, and we’re happy to help.

Stainless Steel Leaf Chains Design Characteristics

  • Select high-quality stainless steel material
  • High strength and precision
  • Corrosion resistance, high and low-temperature resistance
  • Long life, clean and sanitary

Stainless Steel Leaf Chain Applications

Stainless steel leaf chains are constructed with stacked plates and pins to provide high strength for various high-load applications. Stainless steel leaf chains is ideal for heavy-duty hanging, balancing, or motion transmission applications like:

  • Forklifts
  • Material Handling
  • Lift trucks
  • Container lifts
  • Machine tools
  • Elevator and oven doors
  • Spinning frames
Stainless Steel Leaf Chain Applications Stainless Steel Leaf Chain Applications

Why Does the Leaf Chain Have a Deviation Problem?

1. Too fast chain starting speed can also cause deviation. Start at a slow pace at this time. If the winding motor is used, it can be restarted after two jogs and can also get rid of the deviation condition reasonably.

2. The initial supporting force of the chain is minimal. The lack of support at the conveyor belt leaving the drum causes the conveyor belt to deviate. This type of situation usually occurs at startup, and the way to deal with it is to adjust the tensioning device to increase the initial support force.

3. The end transmission roller bearing is damaged and does not rotate, or the left and right roller bearings are damaged and do not rotate too much. The cause of the damage is that the tail sinks and floats too much. There is no immediate repair and replacement of the components that have been damaged or rotated inefficiently, which increases the frictional resistance and leads to deviation.

4. If the load of the stainless steel chain is too large, it will run off if it exceeds the electrical working capacity. The beneficial side of running deviation at this time is the maintenance effect on electricity. Otherwise, the electricity will be damaged after a long time. But for the operation, it is a deviation accident.

5. To eliminate the deviation of the stainless steel chain conveyor belt, first look for the reason for the departure and then take measures to deal with it. In that way, many conveniences have been produced for everyone’s work.

Stainless Steel Leaf Chain Inspection

It is important to inspect your stainless steel leaf chains regularly to prevent catastrophic failure that can result in equipment and person damage. The chart below indicates several common wear and protocols for your stainless steel leaf chain.

Stainless Steel Leaf Chain Inspection

Problem Possible Cause Solution
Circumferential Wear of Plate Wear Replace the chain if wear is or exceeds 5% of original side-plate height.
Oblique Wear of Plate and Pin Head Misalignment of Guide or Pulleys Re-Align Machine
Stiff Link Dust or foreign substances are contained in a bending portion
corrosion and rust
Bent Pin
Wash Chain and Lubricate
Replace the Chain
Replace the Chain
Abnormal Protrusion or Rotation of Pin Head Excessive Tension by Overload or Insufficient Lubrication Replace the chain, lubricate, and eliminate overload
Wear Elongation This occurs with normal wear over time or can be the result of a permanent deformation due to overload. Replace the chain when its length becomes 1.03L.
Note: Wear elongation of a chain will lower its tensile strength (wear elongation of 3% lowers the tensile strength by 18%)
The wear life of the chain can be increased by using lubrication.
Cracked Plate (1) where the crack from hole of a link plate in the direction perpendicular to tension direction. Load exceeding the allowable tension of chain Replace the chain with a chain of higher maximum allowable tension, or lower the load of dynamic shock load.
Cracked Plate (2) where the crack takes place in an oblique direction against tension direction Heavy rust or corrosion to a corrosive material. Replace the chain and protect it from corrosive circumstances.
Broken Plate by High Tension Overload Replace the chain and eliminate the cause of overload.
Enlarged plate hole Overload Replace the chain and eliminate the cause of overload.
Corrosion of pit Corrosive Circumstances Replace the chain, and protect from corrosive circumstances
Wear of Connecting Pin Normal Wear Replace the Worn Component
