900 SERIES PINTLE CHAINS, sometimes referred to as “sugar mill” or “intermediate carrier chain” is used extensively in sugar mills. Multiple strands of 900 Pintle Chain, available with one or two holes per link, can be installed with overlapping beaded carrier slats to form a continuous apron conveyor for intermediate carrier assistance.
The pin holes at the Transmission Chain closed end of the 900 Class link are given with smooth bushings which are press-fitted into the links and keyed into place. The bushings are renewable and can be driven out and replaced when sugar chainthey become worn. 900 Class Pintle Chain was created with dual barrels, one on each side of the open end of the links, to support double sprockets. The objective of this driving method is to get rid of the possibility of materials build-up in the sprocket get in touch with area, which frequently causes the chain to jump the sprocket. Heavy ribs rigidly reinforce these driving barrels.
Our 900 Class chain links, with tensile strength from 22,500 to 32,500 pounds, can be found with large sliding surfaces to reduce chain wear and prolong chain existence. Broad wearing surfaces and heavy cross sections team up to provide a substantial link which is made according to manufacturer’s standards and may perfectly replace links made by other manufacturers.
Brutaloy sprockets for 900 Class Pintle Chain are plentiful in 3.170 inches. 900 Class Pintle Chain should only be permitted to travel in one direction; links should always run in the direction of their closed narrow end.
Available in cottered construction only, 900 Class Chain can be assembled with T-headed pins which are locked into place by two lugs cast on the ends of the driving barrels to prevent pin rotation. Pin rotation during operation would lead to wear within the bushing. Both head of the pin and the cottered end of the pin are secured by cast lugs on the barrel end of the links.
Material
900 Class Pintle Chain are links cast of malleable iron or Promal (Duramal). It is furnished with carbon metal warmth treated pins and carbon metal case hardened bushings as standard. However, stainless steel pins and bushings can be provided when specified.
