Donghua USA Inc.

Agricultural Chains

We offer many kinds of agricultural chain products including a wide range of combine chains. Our experience in agricultural chain production comes from being an OEM supplier. Accordingly, we have accumulated in-depth knowledge of agricultural chains in all areas: development, manufacturing and application. We design our agricultural chains to meet precise operational requirements according to operating conditions. You can expect the best material and optimum heat treatment method.

Driving Chains

Driving chain is our most widely used product in the market. On-going development and improvements make it especially suitable for a wide variety of diverse conditions such as motorcycle chain, high strength roller chain, galvanized chain, nickel-plated chain, Dacromet-plated chain, lubrication-free chain and oil field chain. We supply a large range of standard attachments, or we can custom develop an attachment according to your specifications.

Stainless Steel Chains

Consider Donghua USA stainless steel chain for your toughest application. It is especially suitable when anti-corrosion properties are required, as in a chemical application or in extreme temperature conditions. Our austenitic stainless steel chain series has excellent anti-corrosion properties, and can be applied in acidic, alkaline and -40°-600° temperature conditions. In comparison, series 316L has better diamagnetism, good suitability in severe temperature conditions where anti-corrosion properties are needed. The martensitic stainless steel chain series (such as 2Cr13) has anti-corrosion properties as well as comparable strength to a chain with the same carbon steel content.

Leaf & Hoisting Chains

Donghua USA hoisting chain includes our standardized leaf chain series and multi-plate pin chain, as well as our parking garage chain and special leaf chain for stackers. Each adopts high wear-resistant pin carburizing technology and/or pin through hardened technology in order to increase its impact resistance. An example is the special leaf chain for container stackers which has high wear resistance and fatigue performance in order to meet the requirements of high-load and continuous operation conditions.

Conveyor Chain

We combine extensive design experience and modern manufacturing technology to custom design the exact conveyor chain needed for various market applications. You can find Donghua conveyor chain used as escalator step-chain, double plus chain, palm oil chain, sugar mill chain, spreading machine chain, dry oven chain, bulk material conveyor chain, and more. Each incorporates high quality material, precise heat-treatment, and quality assembly. Donghua USA conveyor chain meets the international standard (ISO) and other advanced industrial standard (DIN, ANSI, BS).

Escalator Chains

Donghua USA escalator chains are precision designed for maximum working life, whether it is a light or heavy duty application. Our escalator chain is engineered to meet your exact application, and the design encompasses all required lubrication traits. Working with your load rates and use patterns, we will create a precision chain that matches your specific requirements.
