Chain sling Specification Chart

The use of chain, slings and components are subject to certain hazards that cannot be met by mechanical and or manufacturing means. It is imperative to exercise intelligence,care and common sense while using chain slings. Coordinated Wire Rope is your source for quality, safety and service for any and all rigging products.

  • Sling use is subject to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.184) and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASMEB30.9) safety standards, requiring the sling users to conduct safe working practices and perform documented regular inspections.
  • Do not exceed the working load limit (WLL) of the sling or any component.
  • Chemically active environments may adversely affect chain slings. Do not use in highly acidic or caustic environments. Coordinated should be contacted if slings will be exposed to chemically active environments.
  • High and low temperatures will affect chain slings. Coordinated should be contacted if temperatures below -20°F (29°C) will be experienced.
  • Never field weld or repair a chain sling. Chain slings should only be repaired by a qualified repair facility.
  • Be aware that lifting with chain on an angle, like any sling, can result in reduced capacity and a increased Load Angle Factor.

OSHA and ASME standards require users to conduct frequent and periodic inspections. A visual inspection should be performed prior to each use. Periodic inspection which includes a complete link by link and component inspection of each sling assembly should be performed at least once annually and the results documented in written records. Please contact Coordinated Wire Rope for any questions regarding proper use, inspection criteria or having slings tested and certified.

WARNING!

ALWAYS FOLLOW OSHA, ANSI B30.9 AND MANUFACTURERS GUIDELINES WHEN USING THESE PRODUCTS. SLINGS CAN FAIL IF DAMAGED, MISUSED OR OVERLOADED. INSPECT BEFORE USE. USE ONLY IF TRAINED AND NEVER EXCEED RATED CAPACITY ON SLING TAG. PROTECT SLING FROM DIRECT CONTACT WITH EDGES AND CORNERS. DEATH OR INJURY CAN OCCUR FROM IMPROPER USE. SLING ANGLES RESULT IN A REDUCTION OF THE CAPACITIES SHOWN ON THE TAG.

Cam-Alloy Chain Slings

Cam-Alloy Chain Specifications

Cam-Alloy steel chain is electrically welded alloy steel embodying the latest manufacturing technology. Alloy provides a superior chain sling with high tensile strength and excellent wear resistance.The following chains meet or exceed all existing OSHA, ANSI, ASME, NACM and ASTM specification requirements. The Cam-Alloy chain and attachments used in fabricating Campbell chain slings offer a design factor of 4 to 1. System 8 is Campbell's trade name for Grade 80 chain. System 10 is Campbell's trade name for Grade 100 chain.
