Leaf chains generally have greater tensile strength than roller chains, and run over sheaves rather than sprockets. Specifications for leaf chain include series type. There are three main types of leaf chain series: AL series, BL series, and LL series. Leaf chains are most often used as counterweight chains for machine tools, elevator and oven doors, fork lift truck masts, spinning frames and similar lifting or balancing applications. And BL series can, in most instances, replace the older AL series Leaf chains.

There are different classes and applications for leaf chain including agricultural chain, conveyor chain, engineering steel chain, lift or hoist chain, oil field chain, and power transmission chain. Agricultural leaf chain is uses for agricultural applications. Conveyor leaf chains are specially designed for used in conveyor applications and include roller chains with special attachments, flat-top leaf chains, and silent chain. Engineering steel leaf chains are manufactured from machined and fabricated steel. This type of chain can be used for a variety of industrial applications.

When you used them, there are some general cautions you should know. Use lengths of factory assembled chain. Do not build lengths from individual components.Do not attempt to rework damaged chains by replacing only the components obviously
faulty. The entire chain may be compromised and should be discarded. Never electroplate assembled Leaf chain or its components. Plating could result in failure
from hydrogen embrittlement and so on , remember these you would find they are very usefull.
