PEER Chain offers many types of chain products. Though we specialize in roller chains, the most popular type of chain, we also carry various lifting chains. Used in a variety of applications, the lifting chain is a standard in many businesses that need to move heavy objects from one place to the next. If your business uses a hoist, you probably need lifting chain solutions.
The lifting chains we carry at PEER Chain operate over a sheave that is engaged through the use of a motor or hydraulics. The first known hoist was assembled in the 1800s, but historians believe that they had to have also been used in the time of ancient Egypt during the building of the pyramids. Obviously, technology has improved since ancient Egypt. PEER Chain’s commitment to quality is evident from the time you pick up your first product there.
Even when you can’t see a physical lifting chain, the chances are that if something heavy is being moved by a forklift or lift device, this type of chain is likely to be involved. Hoists move heavy objects from one place to another with minimal human effort. From ports to warehouses of every size, lifting chains do the heavy-duty work that keeps our customers’ applications running. Constructed of a series of plates and pins, PEER Chain’s lifting chains are engineered with a high degree of precision.
If lifting chains are used that are not suitable for your application or load, you run the risk of premature wear and potential failure. Therefore, any damaged or defective chain on your equipment should be replaced immediately, as it is a serious safety hazard due to the pressure that is exerted on the chains when they’re bearing a heavy load. Moreover, maintaining your equipment minimizes downtime and lost revenue due to equipment failure or breakdown.
Lifting chain solutions are perfect for use in the following industries and applications:
Shipping containers/port applications: Lifting chains allow you to move heavy machinery and containers with minimal effort.
Warehouse: Lifting chains will keep your forklifts running smoothly, minimizing downtime due to broken or worn-down equipment.
Boat lifts: Use PEER Chain lifting chain to lift large boats with ease. Additional ProCoat Technology can be used to minimize wear in a corrosive environment like seawater.
Car lifts: Perfect for application in body shops and garages where a lifting chain is needed to ensure cars and other heavy items are moved safely and effortlessly.
These are just a few of the industries and applications that benefit from the lifting chains in the vast catalog of products imported by PEER Chain. The possibilities are endless when you choose PEER Chain’s lifting chains for your industrial applications.
