Long Link Chain with Skookum Flights

Long Link Chain with skookum flights: one of our specialties since 1980 for the timber, sawmill, OSB and pulp and paper sectors.

This style of chain is commonly used in the New Zealand wood processing sector for refuse conveyors moving bark, sawdust and similar materials. The attachment fitted to this chain is an industry standard attachment called a “Skookum Flight”.

There is a range of benefits to using alloy chains such as:

  • Where the properties of allow steel fully heat treated can save on downtime and replacement costs, compared to chains of lesser quality
  • Extremely high hardness value
  • Reduced elongation problem
  • Resistant to shock loading, grain growth, and work hardening
  • Less reduction in strength when used at temperatures up to 370°C, than other grades of chain tested
  • Not subject to brittle fracture at low temperatures
