3. When a chain container is not used
Mount a stopper at the ninth link from the end
of load chain as shown in Fig. 2, and connect
the end of the load chain to the hoist body
without twist in the load chain.
4. Coat load chain with oil
For a longer service of the load chain, lightly coat it with machine
oil or gear oil.
5. Prevent capsize in load chain
If your hoist is any of 250-L, 500-L, 1000-L and 2000-L capacities, the
bottom nook is suspended by a two fold load chain, check to see if the
bottom hook is not capsized, giving a twist in the load chain as shown
in Fig. 3. If the load chain is capsized, restore it to normal.
Never try to suspend a load onto the twisted chain. If the load chain
is not twisted, the welded part of the chain are in alignment (Fig. 3).
6. Mounting of plain or, geared trolley to beam (Mounting of electric
chain hoist to the plain or geared trolley is by means of top hook).
