In many industrial sectors, lifting chain assemblies may be used in a wide range of applications involving a variety of lifting, dragging, winching, and other motions.
However, considering the wide variety of lifting chains on the market, choosing the right one for the job at hand may be difficult. The following details are provided in the hopes that they’ll assist you in making the right choice!
Usage Of Lifting Chains
Lifting chains, being one of the most durable types of lifting equipment, are available in a variety of grades. Lifting chains, also known as chain slings, are another kind of construction material that may be used in a number of lifting applications where the weight, size, position, or location of a load is an issue. This device is most likely to be used on a regular basis to transport large and heavy things and may be designed with a single leg, two legs, three legs, or four legs. LGD chain slings can lift up to 85 tonnes and come with a variety of fitting options.
Good Technique for Using Lifting Chains
This means that whether you’re lifting, pulling, or towing with the sling, the certificated rating remains the same as long as you obey the lifting equipment regulations.
So, to begin, some essential good practice guidelines for using lifting chains.
Prepare for the lift or procedure. Check for impediments, such as overhanging power lines, and make sure there is enough clearance to safely raise and lower or draw the products.
Before linking the chains to the object to be carried, ensure that they are free of damage, are not tangled/knotted, and that the links are not rusted or too worn.
When lifting, make sure the lifting point is above the weight’s center of gravity, and use shorteners (see below for additional information) to adjust the chain sling length if required.
Before beginning the procedure, ensure that any loose cargo items may be removed or fixed.
Perform a trial by gently lifting or pulling the weight and confirming it is properly balanced and steady. If not, change your setup and try again till you can continue safely.
Lifting chains are a special kind of chain used for lifting and lowering things that are too big or huge to be lifted safely using conventional methods.
Our heavy-duty chains are available in a range of lengths, with longer chains utilized for larger weights or for items that must be lifted to higher heights. Depending on the weight of the load, our chain may also have many legs that may be joined to various components of the load. This helps to equally distribute the weight and strengthen the bond.
