Chain Conveyors

Chain Conveyors


  • A chain conveyor moves material through production lines and a requirement of many bulk material handling applications. They can be used to meter or transfer bulk materials from one process to another. Chain conveyors utilize a powered continuous chain arrangement, carrying a series of single pendants. The chain arrangement is driven by a motor, and the material suspended on the pendants are conveyed.

Application Area:

  • Ideal for handling dry, free-flowing materials


  • Materials are static and move en-masse by paddles or chain.
  • Minimal product degradation during conveying.
  • Require less horsepower than other types of conveyors.
  • Easily Replaceable Wear Liners for Minimal Down Time.
