Plan your next overhead elevation project and are you uncertain of the best sort of elevation slopes to use? Or, perhaps you don’t get the life of the slings you are presently using, would you expect it?

The use can be made for securely and effectively lifting, shifting and positioning loads through chain slings, rope slings, internet slings, rounder slings, synthetic ropes or metal lifting chains and slings. But it is dependent on full knowledge of the implementation, environment and the way the sling will help and raise the load that is used to choose the appropriate form of lifting sling.

Alloy Chain Slings:

The bulldogs of lifting buckles are in terms of toughness and reliability. This lifting chains can be used to regularly or repetitively lift very heavy and bulky loads. Their flexible structure ensures strength and resistance, allowing them to resist effect, extreme temperatures and chemical and UV exposure.

In high-temperature apps and heavy-duty load-lifting work, lifting chains and slings are preferred. Its power and strength enable it to be used in foundries, steel mills, heavy machinery stores and any other environment in which repeated lifting or severe conditions harm and/or ruin a wire rope sling. If there is any damage on a chain sling, they can be fully repaired and certified after repair.

This lifting chains and slings may be heated up to 550°C, but the working load limit should be reduced as recommended by the manufacturer if the temperature is continuously above 200°C.

Single leg, 2-leg, 3-leg and 4-leg designs can be configured in chains and slings. They may be configured for vertical, choker or basket-touch apps and can be used to produce separate sling-assemblies for various apps with a variety of sling hooks, chain lengths and chain connections.

Although the alloy steel class 63, 80 and 100 are available in many various chain kinds, overhead height is usually advised.  Lifting chains and slings made of non-alloy steel material may be used for some apps. These apps require a high-temperature or corrosive atmosphere. Often stainless steel or some other special material chain is the chain material in these single application. If a non-allocation chain is used for lifting, the user should record the reason for the use of non-alloy lifting chains and slings and also adhere to all relevant norms for chain sling, including sling identification and control.

For chain slings, the design factor is 4:1, which means that the braking power of the slings is four times greater than the classified workload limit. Although chain slings are designed, the workload limit should never be exceeded by the user.

Use of Alloy Chain Slings Advantages:

In the toughest operating environments, the lifting chains and slings design is high-strength, durable and flexible

Fully reworkable by replacing single-chain connections or connection sections

In the case they have been repaired, chain slings are simple to inspect, test and re-certify.

Can be used in dangerous settings where other lifting chains and slings would have been harmed or demolished

At comparatively elevated temperatures.

Corrosion, chemical and UV resistant.
