Certificate for clean electricity

Ketten Wälder is using 100 % electricity from Hydropower since beginning of this year

As energy-intensive industry and because of responsibility for our environment we deliberately have chosen a power supplier that offers a clean tariff as well for commercial users.

We manufacture in one of Germany’s most beautiful areas – the Chiemgau. To preserve its beauty, we are using electricity from hydropower – a clean way to produce electricity. As we have distinct consumption peaks, it is also essential to us, having a power supplier who can adjust flexibly to our demand. And for this purpose hydropower is the perfect technology.

At Ketten Wälder you not only get chains at utmost quality, but they are being manufactured environmentally friendly.

Stainless-steel shackles for even more safety!

Open to new ideas and interested in users’ increasing safety awareness, Ketten Wälder has expanded its CROMOX® programme of stainless-steel chains to include the “NSS”-type safety shackles.

Uncertified stainless-steel shackles, mostly made using the lost wax casting method, which may break under load without any warning – that is what you will not find in the Cromox range of sling devices.

Tried and tested for years, the NSA-type CROMOX stainless-steel D shackles are conspicuous by the following features:

  • forged design
  • tested with 2.5-fold capacity load   (standard requirement = 2-fold)
  • a safety factor of 1:4 against breaking
  • a reinforced bolt
  • precisely fitting thread
  • marking of code, CE, load-bearing capacity and manufacturer identification on both the bow and the bolt
  • with test certificate

The new NSS shackle type, available as of now, is based on the same principles as the NSA, but has been enhanced with an extended bolt provided with a hole and safety split pin. This additional safety feature will prevent the bolt from falling out even if it becomes loose. The NSS is therefore recommended in particular for applications with extreme vibrations, such as when lifting submersible pumps or mixers.
CROMOX offers reliability in every respect, as Ketten Wälder assumes product liability for the entire CROMOX programme.

cromox enormously strong – now also for lifting small loads

Ketten Wälder has filled a gap in the market:

As of now, users no longer need to rely on untested Far-East products, which can be really dangerous to operate: For the Ketten Wälder company has extended its "CROMOX®" stainless-steel chain programme downwards!

The new "Type NOHF 04" stainless-steel eye hook is now available. Despite its extremely small design, it offers everything that a load hook must have:

Marking including type and manufacturer identification, traceability code, CE, grade and size.

The NOHF 04 hook has a throat opening as large as 20 mm, and a certified maximum lifting capacity of 300 kg. Only by using the high-quality Duplex 1.4462 (AISI 318 LN) stainless-steel material has it been possible to achieve this enormous lifting capacity with these small dimensions. CROMOX thus now offers a universally usable stainless-steel eye-type load hook, which can also be welded or pressed into chain or rope slings.

So now if relatively small loads need to be lifted in fields such as the chemical and oil industry, water and wastewater management, the environmental industry and the food industry, CROMOX by Ketten Wälder provides reliable help.
