3 Leg Chain Sling

A three leg sling comprises three legs permanently connected at their upper ends by a suitable link assembly and marked as an assembly. Three leg slings are commonly used to handle circular or irregularly shaped loads where the legs can be equally spaced.
3 leg chain sling, H-Lift Industries
A 3-leg chain sling is a type of lifting equipment used in material handling and lifting applications. It consists of three lengths of chain that are attached to a master link or a connecting link at one end and have hooks or other attachments at the other ends. The three legs of the sling are typically connected to a lifting hook or other lifting device.

Here are some key points about 3-leg chain slings:

  • Material: Chain slings are often made of alloy steel, providing strength and durability. The chains are designed to withstand heavy loads and harsh working conditions.
  • Configuration: The three legs of the chain sling are usually attached to a master link or a connecting link, which is then connected to a lifting device. The legs are evenly spaced to ensure proper load distribution.
  • Hooks and Attachments: The ends of the chain legs are equipped with hooks, shackles, or other attachments that secure the load during lifting. These attachments are designed to provide a secure connection to the load.
  • Load Capacity: The load capacity of a 3-leg chain sling depends on factors such as the size and strength of the chain, the type of hooks or attachments used, and the working load limits specified by the manufacturer.
  • Versatility: Chain slings are versatile and can be used in various lifting applications. They are commonly used in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and shipping for lifting heavy and bulky loads.
  • Inspection and Maintenance: Regular inspection and maintenance are crucial for ensuring the safety and reliability of chain slings. Inspections should check for wear and tear, damage, and proper functioning of hooks and attachments.
  • Safety Considerations: When using a 3-leg chain sling, it's essential to follow safety guidelines and regulations. Proper training of personnel involved in lifting operations is crucial to prevent accidents and ensure the safe use of the equipment.

Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines and industry standards for the specific 3-leg chain sling you are using, as the design and specifications can vary. Additionally, compliance with local safety regulations and standards is essential to ensure safe lifting operations.

Grade 8 Chain Sling EN 818-4
The Machinery Directive stipulates that where chain with welded links is used for lifting accessories it is to be of short line type and for the purposes of this standard this is chain having a ratio of nominal pitch to nominal size of 3:1.

This European Standard specifies the requirements related to safety, methods of rating and testing of single-, two-, three-, four-leg and endless chain slings assembled by:

a) mechanical joining devices

b) welding

using short link grade 8 medium tolerance lifting chain conforming to EN 818-2 together with the appropriate range of components of the same grade.

chain sling
assembly consisting of a chain leg or chain legs joined to upper and lower terminals for attaching loads to the hook of a crane or other lifting machine.

nominal size of chain sling

The nominal size of short link chain, in millimetres, used in the manufacture of the chain sling.

nominal grade of chain sling
For the purpose of designation in accordance with annex C, is the same as the grade of the short link chain used in the manufacture of the chain sling i.e. 8.

master link
A link forming the upper terminal of a chain by means of which the chain sling is attached to the hook of a crane or other lifting machine.

length of a leg
For a finished chain sling, is the length from the lower bearing point of the lower terminal to the upper bearing point of the upper terminal.

intermediate master link
A link used to connect one or two legs of a sling to a master link.

lower terminal
A link, hook or other device fitted at the end of a leg of a sling, remote from the master link or upper terminal.

mechanical joining device

A means of connection which does not depend on welding. It may be integral with a component or be a separate component.

joining link

A welded link fitted to the end of a chain to connect it either directly or through an intermediate link to an upper or lower terminal or intermediate master link or in the case of an endless chain sling to the other end of the chain.

intermediate link
A welded link used to form a connection between the terminal and the joining link fitted to the chain.

manufacturing proof force (MPF) of a chain sling
A force applied during manufacture as a test to the whole chain sling or a force applied as a test to a section of chain sling.

working load limit (WLL) of a chain sling
The maximum mass which a sling is authorized to sustain in general lifting service.

master link assembly
assembly consisting of a master link together with two intermediate master links.
