AKAPP has a wide range of high flexible cables, especially developped for use in drag chains. These cables require extremely high mechanical demands, because of the ongoing bow and stretch movements during the movement of the chain during traverse.
Therefore, we recommend to use our special chain cables, series ASP with PVC or PUR outer sheath, for all applications where drag chains are applied.
Please ask our sales department for more information on this.
|Highly flexible||ASP cables are esspecially developped for use in drag chains and therefore offer maximum flexibility. Bending radius of up to 5x outer diameter is possible *)|
|Compact design||Relatively small outer diameter and low weight; this often results in smaller chain sizes compared with other cables|
|Solid construction||Fitted with a protection shield between the cores and outer sheath|
|Temperature range *)||Operational temperature -50/+90 °C (fixed); |
Operational temperature -40/+90 °C (moved)
|Chemical resistance||largely resistant to acids, bases, solvents, hydraulic fluids, etc.|
|Wide range of types||There is a wide range of cable types available, covering almost every demand. Both without or with copper shielded cores (see picture)|
*) Depending on cable type. Please ask our sales department for further information.
