Malleable cast iron chains are available in a wide range of sizes to suit different industrial applications. The following are the most common sizes of malleable cast iron chains:

Size 20

This is the smallest size of malleable cast iron and it is commonly used in lightweight applications.

Size 40

Size 40 is a popular size of malleable cast iron chain. It is commonly used in medium-duty applications.

Size 60

Size 60 is a heavy-duty malleable cast iron chain that is commonly used in material handling and other heavy-duty applications.

Size 80

Size 80 is the largest size of malleable cast iron chain and it is commonly used in heavy industry.

Malleable Chain Features and Benefits

1. High Strength

Malleable cast iron has impressive tensile and yield strength, allowing it to bear large loads and resist fracture.

2. Ductility and Malleability

Unlike regular cast iron, malleable cast iron has a degree of ductility and malleability, allowing it to deform slightly without fracturing, making it more resistant to shock and vibration.

3. Wear Resistance

Malleable cast iron's surface is naturally hard and wear-resistant, minimizing wear and tear and extending chain life.

4. Corrosion Resistance

Malleable cast iron has inherent corrosion resistance, making it suitable for use in harsh environments such as wet or chemical environments.

5. Machinability

While not as easy to machine as steel, malleable cast iron can still be machined and formed to manufacture.

6. Cost-Effective

Malleable cast iron achieves a good balance between performance and cost compared to other chain materials like steel, making it an attractive choice for budget-focused applications.

Can Malleable Cast Iron Chains Be Customized?

Advantages of Malleable Chain

1. Extended Normal Operating Time

The high strength and wear resistance of malleable cast iron chains can reduce downtime due to chain breakage or wear.

2. Improved Safety

The material's ductility and malleability provide a certain overload-bearing capacity, preventing catastrophic chain failures and ensuring safer operations.

3. Reduced Maintenance Costs

The durability and wear resistance of these chains minimize the need for frequent replacement and maintenance, reducing operating costs.

4. Versatility

Malleable cast iron chains offer strength, flexibility, and corrosion resistance, making them suitable for various applications.

5. Shock and Vibration Absorption

The material's slight ductility helps absorb shock and vibration, protecting equipment and improving overall system performance.

6. Suitable for High-Temperature Environments

Malleable cast iron maintains its strength and wear resistance even at high temperatures, making it suitable for use in hot environments.

Sprockets for Malleable Chains

Sprockets for Malleable Chains

Sprockets are commonly used with malleable cast iron chains, and the following are specific types of sprockets that are commonly used with :

1. Cast Iron Sprockets

provide economical durability for light-duty applications.

2. Steel Sprockets

Steel sprockets are more wear-resistant than cast iron and are suitable for medium to heavy-duty applications.

3. Ductile Iron Sprockets

Ductile iron sprockets provide excellent strength and fatigue resistance for demanding applications.

4. Double Sprockets

Double sprockets are used for applications that require two chains to run in opposite directions.

5. Custom Sprockets

Custom sprockets can be designed to meet specific requirements, such as unique tooth profiles or materials.
