This standard applies to flat link chains with the same pitch (round steel link chains with flattened vertical links which may be either forged or welded) subjected to traction in chain conveyors preferably in mining operations. They are used whenever the profiles of the conveyors do not permit the use of the round steel link chain according to DIN 22252 of the same nominal size.
This standard specifies requirements for the design, selection of materials, test procedures and working forces.
Flat link chains according to this standard shall not be used as lifting accessories, slings or loadbearing devices within the meaning of DIN 15003.
