400 Class Pintle Chain is a lightweight, moderately priced chain capable of handling average loads at slow or intermediate speeds. It is proportionately cast for balance, strength and long, efficient service, and is available in riveted or cottered construction. The head of each pin is notched to fit the sidebar locking lug which keeps the pin from rotating when the chain is in use. Closed bearing construction makes 400 Class Pintle Chain useful in conveying moderately gritty and abrasive materials.
With a tensile strength range from 7,800 to 28,600 pounds, 400 Class Pintle Chain is carefully cored for pitch accuracy with smooth bearing surfaces that reduce "break-in" wear causing pitch elongation.
400 Class Pintle Chain is available in a pitch range of 1.375 to 3.075 inches with a complete assortment of Brutaloy or cast steel sprockets.
A large assortment of attachments are available to handle a wide variety of applications. Styles A and G attachments are offered in right and left hand links.
As a drive chain, 400 Class Pintle is designed to travel in the direction of the barrel end of the links; as an elevating or conveying chain, its direction of travel should be toward the open ends of the links.
Commonly used in agriculture, bucket elevators, citrus processing conveyors, food processing, forest products, grain handling, high-temperature industrial ovens, parts washdown, rubber manufacturing, sugar processing, water treatment.
Pintle chains are utilized in a wide range of agricultural, industrial, and municipal applications. Each class of pintle chain has specific attributes dependent upon its intended purposes. Wastewater Applications:
Both 400-class and 700-class pintle chains are utilized in wastewater collector and drive systems. Our 400-class pintle chains are made from a high-strength cast alloy and come standard with stainless steel cotters. The 700-class pintle chains are available in steel, cast, and acetal (non-metallic) materials. Spreader Applications:
600-class steel pintle chains, as well as 400-class pintle chains, are both used in various spreader applications such as; manure spreaders, salt spreaders, fertilizer spreaders, and sand spreaders. The chains are typically accompanied by crossbars/ slats for moving the material. Conveyor Systems:
Pintle chains of all classes are utilized in a broad spectrum of conveyor systems because of their high strength and long wear life. It is important to note that when designing a pintle chain conveyor the chain is only made to go in one direction. Sugar Mills:
400-class, 800-class, and 900-class series pintle chains are utilized in different applications within sugar mills.
