Chain slings grade 80
Selection criteria for chain slings
- Determine the weight of the load to be lifted.
- Determine the number of chain legs required depending on the existing attachment points and the load geometry.
- Use the load capacity table to determine the nominal chain thickness, taking into account the angle of inclination.
- Take into account any existing temperature influences.
- Note the reduced load capacity with asymmetry.
- Determine the chain length depending on its necessary usable length.
- Make sure that the suspension links in the crane hook and the end fittings match the attachment points.
- Check the selected components or the slings and components in use for their condition. (according to the applicable regulations e.g. DGUV 100-500)
- When designing your hangers or components, also take into account difficult operating conditions such as shock loads.
- Chain slings and components must not be used above an operating temperature of 400° C. However, if your components are accidentally exposed to a temperature of over 400° C, contact the manufacturer immediately to check the components for their further usability.
- In the case of chemical influences such as acids and bases, chain slings of grade 80, 100, 120 must not be used.
