A long link chain is a type of chain where the links have a relatively long distance between them compared to other types of chains. This design allows the chain to be more flexible and easier to handle, as the links have more leverage on each other. Long link chains are commonly used in applications where flexibility and ease of handling are important, such as in hoisting, mooring, and towing applications. They are often used in conjunction with other hardware such as hooks, shackles, and pulleys to provide a safe and secure means of lifting and moving heavy loads.
Long link chains are available in a variety of materials and finishes, including steel, stainless steel, and galvanized steel. They are also available in a range of sizes and load capacities to meet the needs of different applications. When selecting a long link chain, it is important to consider factors such as the load capacity, the environment in which it will be used, and any applicable regulations or standards. Regular inspection and maintenance of the chain is also important to ensure its continued safe use.
