The Benefits of the G80 Chain Sling
The grade 80 chain sling is a reliable lifting sling that is used in a variety of applications. It is manufactured with alloy steel which has been heat treated to provide excellent abrasion resistance. This material is also resistant to UV rays and chemicals. Its strong and flexible design allows it to handle loads of up to 11,000 pounds.
Chain slings come in a wide range of designs. They include 2-leg, 3-leg, and 4-leg designs. They can also be equipped with choker hitches and vertical hitches. In addition, they can be adjusted for load positioning.
As with any lifting equipment, there are specific safety measures you need to take to ensure that your operation is safe. For instance, it is vital that the sling is the correct size for the load and that the load is properly distributed. If the load is not distributed correctly, it could cause a serious physical injury. You should also never exceed the rated working load of the sling.
Before you begin work, it is important to examine the chain sling. This will help you to ensure that all parts are compatible and that the sling is fitting well. If the sling is not fitting well, it can cause the equipment to break. Additionally, the load hooks should be fitted properly so that the sling will be properly seated in the lift device.
To avoid any deterioration, it is recommended that the sling be stored in a cool, dark, and dry place. To make sure that the sling is free of damage, always inspect it before every use.
When a sling is overloaded, the sling should be removed from service immediately. Similarly, it is not advisable to ride or drive the sling. Even personnel should not be riding the sling unless it is specifically designed for carrying personnel.
Alloy chain slings should not be used in chemically active environments. In addition, the sling should not be exposed to temperatures exceeding 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, it is advised that the sling should be rechecked at least once a year to ensure that it is still in good condition.
Grade 100 alloy steel slings offer similar benefits to G80 chain slings. The only difference is that they have a higher working load limit than G80 chains. These chains are ideal for rigging applications because they are ergonomic. Compared to grade 80, the working load limit for grade 100 is about 25% higher. Besides, these chain slings can be used in temperatures up to 300 deg F.
Grade 100 alloy steel slings can be equipped with special covers to protect them from high temperatures. Some slings are also made with high-temperature core yarns. Regardless of the type of sling, it is important that you follow the manufacturer's directions to avoid damage.
Always remember to keep records of your equipment and its components. Not only will this provide a reference when repairing the sling, it will ensure that you have the proper size for your needs.
