What are the reasons for chain jumping on a chain hoist?

A few days ago, a customer complained about frequent chain skipping when using their chain hoist. Some novice friends may not know what chain skipping is. Taking this opportunity, let's explain the chain skipping phenomenon and its causes.

What is skip chain?

During the lifting process of a chain hoist, the chain and chain link correspond one-to-one. If the chain cannot fully correspond to the chain link during the pulling process, chain jumping may occur.

What are the reasons for chain skipping?

1. The specifications of the lifting sprocket and the chain are not consistent, which leads to the inability of the two to mesh properly. The lifting chain is prone to chain jumping during operation, so when replacing accessories, they must be of the same specification, model, and material.

2. Uneven force and sudden excessive force when pulling the chain of the chain hoist can easily cause the chain to jump. Therefore, when using it, we must pull at a uniform speed.

3. Diagonal lifting is also an important cause of chain jumping. If the angle of inclination of the chain is too large, serious shaking will occur during the lifting process, and the chain is prone to chain jumping. This shows the great harm of diagonal lifting, and we should try our best to avoid it.

It can be seen that the phenomenon of chain jumping in the chain hoist is mostly caused by improper operation or arbitrary replacement of accessories. We should try our best to avoid chain jumping during use.
