Bucket Elevator Chain
Renold has been used successfully in elevator applications for many years and it has been found by experience that for most applications, chains that have been derived from the standard range of products are more than adequate.
The inclusion of fillet welded K attachments to provide extra attachment strength and smaller than standard gearing rollers to reduce weight, are all that is required to produce a hard wearing and long lasting chain. Where chains are to be used in abrasive and/or corrosive conditions then special heavy duty chains can be produced.
The chain is fitted with fillet welded K attachments for the dynamic discharge (centrifugal) elevator and G attachments for positive discharge elevator. The details of the design of each of these types of elevator can be found in the downloadable designer guide.
It is sometimes necessary to modify the design, materials, or heat treatment of chain when certain aggressive materials are handled, and in these cases we suggest Renold Applications Engineers are consulted before a chain is specified.
