Leaf chains generally have greater tensile strength than roller chains, and run over sheaves rather than sprockets. They are most often used as counterweight chains for machine tools, elevator and oven doors, fork lift truck masts, spinning frames and similar lifting or balancing applications. BL series can, in most instances, replace the older AL series Leaf chains; consult U.S. Tsubaki for interchange information.
These chains are supplied with male or female terminations to allow addition of various clevises as desired.
