Product Detail

The stud link anchor chain is a commonly used and highly reliable marine anchor chain. It is primarily made of hot-rolled anchor steel or stainless steel, with diameters ranging from 2.5mm to 122mm. This anchor chain for ships is designed for secure anchoring of large vessels in challenging marine environments.

The surface of the stud link anchor chain is typically coated with black asphalt, and hot-dip galvanized finishes are also available upon request. The chain can be cut to size as needed, allowing for customization. Each length of this marine anchor chain is marked with a unique identification number on the end link for traceability purposes.

The Features Of Stud Link Anchor Chain

  • High Strength: Stud link anchor chains are designed to withstand heavy loads and provide reliable anchoring capabilities for large vessels.
  • Center Pin Design: This ship anchor chain features a center pin inside each link, increasing strength, preventing elongation, and enhancing overall performance.
  • Traceability: Each length of the stud link chain is marked with a unique identification number on the end link, enabling traceability and quality control.
  • Easy Slipping: The inboard end of the chain cables can be securely attached to the ship’s structure, allowing for smooth and efficient deployment and retrieval of the chain.

The Accessories Of Stud Link Anchor Chain – Anchor Line

The anchor line is a vital accessory that complements the stud link anchor chain, enhancing the functionality and versatility of the anchoring system. Constructed from durable materials, such as nylon, it provides additional length and flexibility to accommodate varying depths and changing conditions. The anchor line acts as an extension, connecting the end of the ship anchor chain to the vessel, ensuring proper deployment and maintaining tension for effective anchoring. It serves as a safety measure, offering a backup connection in case of anchor chain failure, preventing drifting or loss of position.

How Long Should Your Anchor Line Be?

It is vital to ensure that your anchor line possesses the necessary strength and length to effectively anchor your ship. A practical guideline to follow is to have an anchor line length that is at least seven to ten times the depth of the water where you intend to set the ship anchor.

Testing Load & Chain Weight Of Stud Link Anchor Chain

The chain weight of the stud link anchor chain is a crucial consideration, as it directly impacts the anchoring capabilities of a vessel. Measured in kilograms per 27.5 meters, the chain weight ranges from 194 kilograms to 4976 kilograms, depending on the specific requirements and applications. This weight variation allows for the selection of an anchor chain that aligns with the vessel’s size and anchoring needs.

Additionally, the chain weight plays a significant role in determining the overall stability and holding power of the anchor system. A heavier marine anchor chain provides increased weight and stability, enhancing the anchor’s ability to remain securely embedded in the seabed. It helps to counteract external forces, such as wind and current, and reduces the risk of the anchor dragging or dislodging.
