Description Technical Specs
Our welded steel WH150 chain is manufactured to exceed expectations in working life, strength, and quality. The welded steel style chain is one of the most popular types of Engineer Class Chain on the market. This is widely due to its effectively productive offset link design. With an ultra-high tensile strength of 144,000 lbs at a low per foot weight of 16.8 lbs, WH150 chain makes an excellent and efficient use in whichever application it is used in. What makes our WH150 chain different is the fully heat treated pins, barrels, side-plates, and high-precision strengthened welds. We also use high-grade steel so the core of the components has great metallurgy. Common applications for WH150 welded steel chain include heavy-duty conveyors, forestry, grain handling, pulp, paper, and sugar processing. This chain is supplied as 10' coils (20 link strands) and is supplied with one heat-treated connecting pin per coil.
Important note: Though WH150 chains are manufactured to a certain standard some manufacturers use different plate thicknesses to save on cost, in cases like this please double check tensile strengths, we use the "heaviest duty" standard for ours. Maximum sprocket width dimensions will remain the same so 150 sprockets work across all plate thicknesses.

WH150 vs WR150 vs WH150HD Chain
WR150 and WH150 chain directly interchange with each other dimensionally and are both equally as popular. WH150HD chain dimensionally is the same but with different side-bar thickness (+.120"). When taking a closer look there are differences. WR150 does not implement fully heat-treated components like WH150 and WH150HD chain, thus it has a much quicker wear life and a lower tensile strength rating. Because of this we primarily recommend WH150 chain for general applications and WH150HS chain for applications requiring the highest strength 150 chains available.
WR150 tensile strength - 120,000 LBS
WH150 tensile strength - 144,000 LBS (+24,000 LBS)
WH150HD tensile strength - 168,000 LBS (+48,000 LBS)
Made in USA WH150 Chains
Something that really sets USA Roller Chain and Sprockets apart from other suppliers in the industry is our lineup of domestically manufactured chains. We supply a Made in USA WH150 chain for almost the same price as an import chain, the benefit of domestic welded steel chains boils down to the metallurgy and workmanship/ quality control. Domestic steel has better properties than import and US workers ensure the chain is up to quality standards and is ready for install. Though working loads and tensile strengths are the same with a domestic chain, the metallurgy that domestic materials support will provide an overall better working life in the long-run.

WH150 Chain Attachments

WH150 attachments can be supplied onto the chain in any spacing/ configuration needed.
Standard Attachments:

WH150 RF2

WH150 RF12

WH150 Slasher

WH150 Log Chair
Non-Standard Attachments:

Pusher Attachment

Flat Bar

HSS Square Tube
Pusher Attachment - These are used in trimmer applications, steel mills, and applications for pushing heavy or large products.
Flat Bar - These attachments are offered as just a standard steel flat plates/ flights or with UHMW or press-fitted steel tube. The UHMW flights act as the wear strip in the bottom of a conveyor.
HSS Square Tube - These are easily replaceable UHMW or steel tube sleeves that reduce wear, maintenance cost, power consumption, and reduce noise.
Non-standard attachments are made per requested dimensions from the customer.
