Steel pintle chain is originally developed for the agricultural implement industry. The original sizes were developed to run on the same sprockets as their detachable chain counterparts of ANSI B29.6. In later years, sizes were developed to accommodate industrail applications. Open Barrel Steel Pintle Chains are recommended as conveyor chains for a wide range of applications such as spreaders, feeder systems, hay handling equipment and spray box, and in limited use, as power transmission chains. These chains can be applied in the smudgy environment.
