RADICAL REENGINEERING

Grabiq  

 

A Totally New Way to Fabricate Chain Slings 

GrabiQ is an exciting new family of alloy chain sling components. Instead of the old "one component does one job" fitting, GrabiQ combines in a single component up to three separate functions. Figure 1 features a GrabiQ Master Grab, which serves as the master link, connecting link for two legs of chain, and shortening hooks for each leg, all in one fitting. Using traditional fittings to construct the same sling (figure 2) would require 7 top-of-the-sling components, instead of just one. Some of the new GrabiQ fittings are equally well suited for use as top assembly connectors or hooks at the bottom of a sling, adding even more flexibility for riggers.

A True Grade 100 Alloy Chain Sling

While the specific Working Load Limits vary, depending on size, slings fabricated from grade 100 chain and fittings are about 25% stronger than their grade 80 counterparts. Converting from grade 80 to GrabiQ will especially benefit users who can make use of the additional WLL without the expense of purchasing larger chain and fittings. The percentage of strength increase varies depending on the size. The Working Load Limit (WLL) gain for 3/8" is about 24 percent, while the WLL gain for 7/32" is more than 30 percent. All other sizes fall somewhere in between.

Fewer Components Means Less Weight

Most of the time, GrabiQ slings will be lighter than their grade 80 counterparts. Fewer components means less weight. Also, because grade 100 has a lifting capacity that is usually 25% higher than its grade 80 counterpart, the ratio of strength-to-weight is greater, offering additional weight savings with GrabiQ.

 

 

GrabiQ

Fig. 1: The GrabiQ Master Grab combines a master link, master link connectors for two legs of chain, and two shortening hooks into a single fitting. The shortening hook can also be used to create loop legs. Fig 4: Only 3 top-of-the-sling GrabiQ components are need to fabricate a 4-leg, fully adjustable sling.

Grabiq

 

 

 

GrabiQ is much more versatile and flexible than other chain slings. Each leg of a GrabiQ sling is typically furnished with a chain pocket, which can be used for shortening or creating leg loops. Rigging has never been easier.

Fig. 2: Traditional two leg; fully adjustable sling would required 7 components.

Reduced Components Means Less Clutter

Because GrabiQ often reduces the number of components required to assemble a chain sling, rigging is easier. Figure 7 shows a three-leg fully adjustable chain sling with all three legs shortened. The sling still has only three fittings at the top.

More Flexibility in Chain Sling Uses

When each GrabiQ leg is furnished with a chain pocket, the chain sling can be used for a much wider variety of loads, often reducing the amount of rigging required on site. The chain pocket can be used to either shorten a leg or create a leg loop. Some fittings are equally well suited for use at the top or bottom of a chain sling. For example, the GrabiQ C-Grab can be used as a top-of-the-sling connector or as pictured in figure 8, at the bottom of the sling as an adjustable sliding choker.

Chain Sling Inspections are Easier

Inspecting chain slings is easier and faster because fewer components must be examined for wear or damage.

Quality Standards

Gunnebo Grade 100 GrabiQ alloy steel chain and chain sling components are manufactured and tested in accordance with ASTM A973, A952, and A907 material standards. GrabiQ chain and components meet or exceed the safety standards as prescribed by ASME B30.9 & B30.10, and OSHA alloy steel chain sling regulations.

All chain and every single component is proof-loaded to 2.5 times the Working Load Limit.

The Swedish plants manufacturing GrabiQ products are certified to ISO 9001 / ISO 9002 Quality Standards. Gunnebo's quality management covers all aspects of production from raw material to delivered product.

Full Test Certification is supplied on request.

 

ADDING STRENGTH

25% Stronger

With the introduction of the new grade 100, we add as much as 25% extra strength over grade 80. We have greatly increased the Working Load Limits of slings, yet with the same design factor as grade 80.

 

GrabiQ...Quality Assurance

In our production and development process the GrabiQ quality assurance is of particular concern. Among our procedures the following are especially important.

 

1. Ultimate force test

Batch samples of chain and components are tested to ultimate failure. The minimum ultimate force is the Working Load Limit times the design factor.

 

 

 

2. Proof Force Test 

Every chain link and component is individually tested to the Manufacturers Proof Force, which is 62% of the minimum ultimate force for the GrabiQ system.

 

3. Total Ultimate Elongation 

During the ultimate force test the elongation at fracture shall be at least 20% for chain grade 100. This acts as an extra feature for detection of an overloaded chain.

5/8 1.9 .85 22,600 56,048 90,400

 

 

4. Dynamic fatigue tests 

All component types in the GrabiQ system are randomly fatigue tested to meet the severest conditions of use.

 

5. Traceability 

Each component is batch marked and linked to an accurate filing system in order to secure traceability all the way through the manufacturing process to the batch data from the steel mill.

GRABIQ ALLOY SLING TYPES

 

GrabiQ Sling Type Naming Code

 

The sling type code is: name of component or assembly at top of sling and name of component at bottom of sling.

Examples: "MF-MF" is a single leg sling with a master link on each end.
"TL3-EGKN" is a triple leg sling with a master link at the top and a sling hook at the bottom.

TIPS FOR GRABIQ SLING ASSEMBLY

 

TIPS

 

1. It is a common practice, when possible, to keep all hooks in the same plane as the master link. This is easily accomplished on 1, 2, & 4 leg slings. It is not possible with 3-leg GrabiQ slings when single and dual fittings are mixed.

2. It is a common practice, when possible, to attach hooks so that latches point away from the master link.

3. Mixing GrabiQ fittings: Adding two additional chain links to the CL & CLD gives the same effective reach as CG & CGD. The MG & MGD have the same effective reach.

4. A metal ID tag must always be attached to a chain sling, showing serial number, size, reach, Working Load Limit at angle of lift and manufacturer.

5. The reach of the sling is the length measured from the load-bearing surface of the master link to the load-bearing surface of the hook or lower terminal (as shown in illustration).

6. Normally, the master link will have a maximum of two connecting links, CG, CGD, CL, or CLD. The maximum number of connecting links that can ever be mounted on a single master link is three, when constructing a double leg basket.

7. A GrabiQ sling can never have more than four independent legs or two basket legs.

8. Attaching CG, CGD, CL, & CLD connectors to MF, MFX, & MTX Master Links: Insert the connector onto the master link at the engineered flat. C-Connecting links are normally attached to the master link using the Dismountable Connecting Set type CS or the Permanent Connecting Set type CP. Each C-Connector includes one solid retainer pin, 1 larger rolled spring keeper pin and 1 smaller rolled spring keeper pin. When the dismountable connecting set is used the sling can be disassembled for repair. The permanent connecting set cannot be disassembled for repair.

    a. CS - 1st install the solid retainer pin. 2nd Drive the smaller rolled spring keeper pin through the hole provided at a right angle to the solid retainer pin. The fit should be very snug.

    b. CP - 1st install the solid retainer pin. 2nd Drive the larger rolled spring keeper pin into the same hole, directly behind solid retainer pin. The fit should be very snug.
