Grade 316 Stainless Steel Pump Lifting Chain

This material is especially resistant to the kinds of corrosion that can occur as a result of exposure to water. With working load limits of between 400kg and 4 tonnes, there are chains in this range that can cope with some fairly significant weights.

Grade 40 High Tensile Steel Pump Lifting Chain

Made using a common type of steel that is made all the more effective for pump lifting duties thanks to its hot dipped galvanized finish, this chain has a broader range of lifting capacities than its Grade 316 counterpart. Starting at 300kg and topping out at 6 tonnes, there should be a chain to meet your requirements right here.

Grade 50 Stainless Steel Pump Lifting Chain

Like many of our stainless steel lifting accessories, this pump lifting chain comes with a polished finish that helps with general maintenance and also leaves it looking good. While aesthetics may not matter much to some customers, to others this will make a real difference and could help enhance the appeal of this particular chain.

The stronger, higher quality steel used here also helps with load limits, as it has a 6.3 tonne safe capacity for the largest example.

Choosing Submersible Pump Chains

There are a number of considerations to factor into your decision-making process when sifting through our pump lifting chains. Price is obviously an important point, so it is worth using our contact details to get a quote from our sales team to help narrow down the field. Load limit is also relevant, with variations depending on the weight of the pump itself and the heft of the chain according to its length.

We can supply a pump chain with whatever attachments you require, such as stainless steel shackles  which share the corrosion-resistant properties of these products. Take your time and ask for help if you need it.

What is pump chain?

A pump lifting chain is a special type of lifting chain specifically for lifting and lowering submersible pumps, commonly used in the water industry.

How is a pump chain different from standard chain?

Pump chains are different from normal because they have an extra, larger, oval link at repetitive intervals along the chain.

How does a pump lifting chain work?

When pumps are lowered into the ground a pump chain is used and left attached with the top link secured to an accessible point for easy retrieval. When retrieving the pump from its hole the pump chain can be manually lifted or winched in 1 metre increments. At each meter there is a large link which can be held or loaded onto an appropriate anchor point/hook to take the strain, this allows the pump to be raised slowly and safely. Tripod frames or aluminium gantries can be used during retrieval.
