The 500 CLASS BUCKET ELEVATOR CHAIN is a sturdy and affordable chain that can carry moderate loads at a slow or intermediate pace. It is designed to be balanced, durable, and provide efficient service, and can be assembled using cottered construction. The pins are designed with notches to properly secure the chain in place and prevent rotation during use. It is especially useful for conveying gritty and abrasive materials. With a tensile strength range of 12,500 to 40,000 pounds and a carefully cored pitch, it reduces wear and elongation. The 500 class bucket elevator chain has a pitch range of 2.32 to 6.30 inches and can be paired with a range of cast steel sprockets. Various attachments in different styles (K1, K2, F2, and G) are available to suit a range of needs, with both right and left-hand links. When used as a drive chain, it should travel in the direction of the barrel end of the links. When used as an elevating or conveying chain, it should travel toward the open ends of the links. This chain is made to the manufacturer's standards and is fully interchangeable.

The 500 series chain features a unique link design that provides reliable performance, even in demanding applications. The chain is made from high-quality materials, such as carbon steel, alloy steel, or stainless steel, depending on the specific application requirements.
