Leaf Chains

What is a leaf chain?
Leaf chains, also known as cable chains or balance chains, are rollerless steel chain running over sheaves. They have a simple structure and consist of only link plates and pins.
A leaf chain is usually used in tension linkage applications, that is, the chain is kept in tension and is movable in either direction on the sheave. As a result, a leaf chain is usually designed with higher tensile strength than roller chains which run over sprockets.

Where do we usually use them?
Leaf chains can be used as counterweight chains in wide range of equipment, such as forklift truck masts, machine tools, elevators and so on.
Additionally, they are also extensively used in flood defense barriers and straddle carriers, etc. for their characteristic of high fatigue strength, long service life and good wear-resistance.
