Design and Application Considerations for Elevating Scraper Chains 700569

Elevator characteristics are discussed as they relate to chain performance, with emphasis on sprocket design and chain interaction. Factors which influence the rate of chain wear are reviewed, and an example is given for calculating chain wear life. Chain loading and the results of field load measurements using telemetry are discussed, with an example for calculating finite chain fatigue life.
