For all situations where a controlled emergency release point is required, the Imenco SnapperTM Weak Link range provides the perfect solution in ensuring a high safety standard for your lifting operations.
The SnapperTM Weak Link is essentially a link introduced to a lifting chain, which is designed to ensure that an emergency release breaking point/value is included in the chain.
This ensures that other components/elements in the chain are protected, i.e.: costly equipment, and/or where safety due to unforeseen breakage is a factor.
This is achieved by use of a Shear Pin with a pre-determined shear value.
The SnapperTM Weak Link range includes three standard sizes:
SnapperTM 6,5 – fits standard 6,5Te shackle
SnapperTM 12 – fits standard 12Te shackle
SnapperTM 35 – fits standard 35Te shackle
With a suitable value Shearpin fitted, a SnapperTM Weak Link can also be used in standard lifting operations, where desired.
