1. The world's largest plastic e-chain® to date (*as in April, 2009)
2. For big, heavy and stiff cables
3. Ideal for use in tough environments such as oil platforms, steelworks and heavy mechanical engineering plants
4. Maintenance-free - no grease or oil needed at the points of articulation during operation
5. Undercut ensures extreme rigidity and ability to withstand shear forces
6. Modular design, therefore easy to assemble and install
7. Highly resistant to wear and corrosion as well as to oil and seawater
8. Can be made lengthened or shortened as required
9. Made of plastic, therefore very quiet in operation
10. Electrically insulating
11. Interior separation system can be supplied
12. Mounting brackets can be supplied
13. Straight running due to inner/outer link design
14. Strong cross bars made of black powder-coated steel - optionally available in stainless steel
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 60 mm (for 3 kg/m additional load) We request you to consult in case of especially restricted space ratios.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.
A = moving end, B = fixed endDivision: 470 mm per linkLinks per m: 2(940mm)Travel: SChain length = S/2 + K
The unsupported length is dependent on the additional load X-axis: Unsupported length in m FLB/FLG Y-axis Additional load in kg/m Lower scale: Travel S in m FLB = unsupported with permitted sag FLG = unsupported with straight upper run Reference example A:
Fill weight = 400 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 3,9 m
Travel = 7,8 m
