Our heavy-duty welded steel WH150HD 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 168,000 lbs at a low per foot weight of 19.3 lbs, WH150HD chain makes an excellent and efficient use in whichever application it is used in. What makes our WH150HD 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 WH150HD 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.
Heavy Duty Welded Steel Chain like this one is recommended for applications that require the highest-strength welded steel chain size available. The only difference between "heavy-duty" welded steel chains and the standard type is the thickness of the side-plates. This means that you can use heavy-duty welded steel WH150HD chain on the same sprockets that WR150 and WH150 chain was used on.
WH150HD vs WR150HD Chain
WR150HD and WH150HD chain directly interchange with each other dimensionally and are both equally as popular. However, when taking a closer look there are differences. WR150HD does not implement fully heat-treated components, thus it has a much quicker wear life and a lower tensile strength rating. Because of this we primarily recommend WH150HD chain and supply it at no additional cost!
WR150HD strength: 114,000 LBS vs WH150HD Strength: 168,000 LBSMade in USA WH150HD 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 WH150HD 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

WH150HD attachments can be supplied onto the chain in any spacing/ configuration needed. Non-Standard Attachments:
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.For more information on WH150HD Heavy-Duty Welded Steel Chain or to get a quote on sprockets or attachments, please contact us.
