leaf chain

How do leaf chains handle lateral forces and side loads?

Leaf chains are designed to handle lateral forces and side loads efficiently, making them suitable for applications where these forces are present. The construction of leaf chains contributes to their ability to withstand such loads.

The unique design of a leaf chain consists of interlocking link plates with specially formed barrels. When the chain is subjected to lateral forces or side loads, the barrels provide additional support and prevent the chain from bending or kinking.

Moreover, leaf chains have relatively large bearing areas on the link plates, which distribute the load evenly across the chain’s width. This characteristic allows leaf chains to effectively handle forces coming from different angles, ensuring smooth and reliable operation in challenging environments.

Leaf chains are commonly used in applications that involve side pulling, lifting, or tensioning, such as forklifts, aerial work platforms, and various material handling equipment. The ability to handle lateral forces and side loads makes leaf chains a preferred choice in situations where other types of chains might not perform as effectively.

However, it is essential to ensure that the selected leaf chain is properly sized and adequately lubricated for the specific application to maximize its performance and longevity.

What are the safety certifications and standards for leaf chains?

Leaf chains used in lifting and rigging applications are subject to various safety certifications and standards to ensure their reliability and performance. Some of the common safety certifications and standards that apply to leaf chains include:

  • ISO 4347: This standard specifies the requirements and test methods for leaf chains for general lifting applications. It covers dimensions, strength, and performance characteristics to ensure safe usage.
  • ASME B29.8: The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard B29.8 covers leaf chains, including design, dimensions, and minimum performance requirements for leaf chains used in industrial applications.
  • EN 818: European Norm (EN) 818 defines the safety requirements for various types of lifting chains, including leaf chains, used in the European Union.
  • DIN 8152: Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) standard 8152 outlines the design and construction requirements for leaf chains used in lifting and materials handling.
  • CE Certification: Leaf chains, like other lifting equipment, may require CE certification to indicate compliance with European safety directives.

When selecting leaf chains for specific lifting applications, it is essential to ensure that they meet the necessary safety certifications and standards. Using certified leaf chains helps ensure the safety of lifting operations, reduces the risk of accidents, and provides confidence in the reliability and performance of the equipment.
