This swing hanger is 3 1/2” O.D. with an 11” circumference. It has a .51 ID oil light bearing and axle bolt with lock tight nut and accepts a 12mm bolt. The stamped steel has more ability to bend so they will not snap when torqued too tightly. The lower half of the swing hanger body has a figure eight pendulum with a sintered bronze bearing incorporated into it, to reduce wear. The bronze is impregnated with oil so the bearings do not have to be oiled. The pendulum is 1” wide and is a completely closed figure eight so that the connecting S-hook or shackle can not be dislodged from the hanger. The two halves of the hanger are bolted together with a 12mm carriage bolt with a hex lock tight nut. The pendulum is held to the hanger with a #12 axle bolt with a long shoulder so the bearing does not ride on the threads. It also has a lock tight nut. This product should last 2 years in harsh conditions and up to 5 years in optimal conditions. Some conditions may require replacement sooner. Tensile strength is 9500 lbs. Sold as each.
|Specifications||Installation: This hanger is made for a schedule 40 3” I.D. pipe which is 3 1/2” O.D. Determine spacing of swing hangers on pipe by consulting either Figure 23, Table 7 for commercial swings, or for residential sets see spacing dimensions for ASTM 1148 diagram. Mark pipe with correct spacing. Place the two halves of the hanger around the pipe. The round swinging pendulum will be facing downwards. The side bolts are placed with the heads on the top of the hanger and the threads facing downwards with the nuts on the bottom. Tighten the side bolts to touch and using no more than 25 lbs. of torque. The top and bottom hanger do not have to be flush. There can be a space between the two halves. After tightening, the threads should not be showing more than two threads past the nut, and the hanger should fit snuggly on the pipe. Grease or oil bushings if squeaking noises are heard. You will need to use S-hooks or H-shackles from the chain to the swing hangers. Make sure the S-hooks are closed to within .04 to meet ASTM safety standards. To do this you will need to use our S-hook pliers or a regular pair of channel lock pliers. Close according to Fig A1.19 for Fastening Devices. WARNING: Once the S-hooks have been opened they will have to be replaced to avoid injuries from coming open and/or breaking. If using an H-shackle the large end goes thru the swing hanger.
