Chain conveyors can be characterized best by their wide spectrum of applications.
Their main advantage is the high capacity of transported material as well as the capability to be installed in tight spaces. Chain conveyors allow the transportation of a wide range of materials, from fine dust to all sorts of sand silicate varieties etc., as the grain size doesn’t affect the conveyors ability.
Their conception is very broad, because any conveyor with a chain drive that transports any type of merchandise is considered to be from this variety.
In this way, its use is appropriate en diverse sectors and for distinct products, although it is the movement of large dimensions or elevated weights where it is most recommended, such as pallets, large boxes, wood industries, etc.
With the design of the conveyor it can be combined with rollers, to improve sliding even more.
Weight and height, speed and conveyor capacity all vary based on the product type as well as the specific installation requirements.
The maximum transported material potential is anywhere between 1000 – 1200 tons per hour, depending on the thickness of the material being transported.
